Deleted/Unadded/Removed/Unfriended on Snapchat?
Here are some ways you can find that out,

- Firstly, open the Snapchat profile of the friend that you think might have unfriended you.
- On the right-hand side of the username is the ‘Snapchat score,’ i.e., the friendship score.
- If the Snapchat score is visible, it reflects that they haven’t deleted you on Snapchat and you are still connected to them.

- Tap the ‘Circle’ to take a picture and send it to a person by tapping on the ‘Send Arrow’ at the bottom right.
- Tap on the message you sent.
- If the status reads ‘Pending’ and never shows ‘Delivered,’ there is a high possibility that the user might have deleted you from their Friends list.
- If the status reads ‘Delivered,’ you are still friends with that person on Snapchat.
Technique 3: Public Stories on the Discover page
- Swipe left on the main Camera screen. There you will find the ‘Discover’ page.
- Discover page allows you to explore the content of new creators and people who aren’t your friends.

Technique 4: Check Other Snapchatters
- Go to the ‘Stories’ icon and create a new story.
- From that story, select a ‘Snap.’
- A snap is a photo or a video that you send to your friends through Snapchat.

Technique 5: Check the Friends screen
- Swipe right on the main Camera screen to view your ‘Friends’ screen.
- The Friends screen lets you see the list of your friends on Snapchat.
- If you don’t see your contact on the Friends screen, especially if you just recently had a chat with them, and if they are neither on the Friends list, you have been removed.
