How to Add People on Snapchat Using Their Phone Number

Snapchat’s search feature is not designed to suggest new people to add based on mutual friends or interests.

This can make it difficult to add someone you know but don’t have their Snapchat username.

There are a few different ways you can find people on Snapchat.

  • Search for their username on other social media platforms. Many people include their Snapchat usernames in their Instagram or Facebook bio.
  • Ask a mutual friend. This can be a good way to connect with people you already know in real life.

Alternatively, you can use your contact list to find people on Snapchat.

If you have someone’s phone number saved in your contacts, you can add them on Snapchat using their phone number.

How to Find Someone on Snapchat by Phone Number

  1. Open the Snapchat app and log in to your account.
  2. Swipe down from the camera screen.
  3. Tap on Add Friends.
  4. Select Add from Contacts to view your phone’s contact list.
  5. Snapchat will prompt you with a permission request to access your contacts. Choose Allow Access.
  6. Find the people you want to add under Snapchatters In My Contacts.

Snapchat provides users with several options to add new friends to their accounts. These include adding friends by username, snapcode, nearby signal, or via Contacts list (as shown above).

What if I can’t find the person even if they have a Snapchat account?

While it is possible to add anyone on Snapchat if you know their phone number, there may be some cases where certain individuals will not appear on your contact list.

This is because they have disabled the option to display their mobile number on Snapchat.

If you want to prevent others from finding your Snapchat account using your phone number, you can adjust your settings.

Tap on the “Settings” section of the app, then navigate to “Mobile Number.” From there, toggle the “Let others find me using my mobile number” option to the off position.

  1. If someone add their phone number to their account but later changed their phone number but didn’t changed on the Snapchat account. So whoever have that old number will show up as that person who had that number before on the Snapchat account
