How to check someone else’s Snapchat score and streaks?

The Snapchat score is a little extra bonus heavy users get when they join the app more often. For many, the Snap Score is not just a status symbol. It’s a way to know if a new friend uses the app often, it’s a way to show others that it’s your preferred method of communication, and it can even be a way to see if someone is actively communicating with other friends on the platform.

While gamers have their time and achievements, social media users have Snapscores. So let’s dive into everything we know about the scoring system, including how to see someone’s Snap Score.

Check your Snapchat score

Your own Snapchat score is displayed as a number below your profile picture on the main Snapchat page in the app. It’s below your username and above any trophies you have. Your Snapscore number depends on how active you are. A low number means you are not Snapping other people. Higher Snapscores mean you Snap a lot of people.

Your score is primarily made up of the number of Snaps you send and receive, as well as the Stories you create, post, and read. According to Snapchat, there are other factors as well, but they don’t tell us what they are.


Since the “streak” is something avid Snapchat users crave, we can safely assume they have something to do with it. Suffice it to say, the more you use Snapchat, the higher your score.


Check out someone else’s Snapchat score

If you want to see someone else’s Snapscore, you can. But you have to be friends with the other person. Otherwise you will not be able to see their score.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Open a chat with the person whose score you want to check.
  2. Tap their profile icon from your messages or the messages you’ve had with this person.
  3. Check their score in the profile window that appears. It’s next to their username at the top.

Improve your Snapchat score

Snapchat scores grow the more you use the app, but we know that creating and receiving Snaps, creating Stories, adding friends, and maintaining Snap Streaks all go a long way toward increasing that score.

Simple private messages won’t help your snap score, but actively participating in group messages will, according to the most plausible theories.

To improve your score:

  • Send a good morning or good night Snap to your friends. One or two extra Snaps per day will add up quickly.
  • Read every Snap or Story you see. Even if it’s painful to read or look at, you get points just opening them.
  • Follow and engage with celebrities. Celebrities usually post multiple times a day, giving you a story to watch often. You can also send celebrities multiple Snaps per day to increase your own Score. Some big celebrities even use agencies to manage their social media presence so they might not even see them.
  • Track and interact with brands. As mentioned above, most major brands will use agencies or social media marketers. Tracking and sending Snaps to brands should have the same effect, especially if you can send one of you with a branded product.
  • Give up Snapchat. Sounds silly, right? Earn points by giving up? You get a points boost if you give up the app for a while and rejoin.

These methods are the only legitimate ways to improve your Snapscore.

Finally, ignore those websites that say they can boost your score in 24 hours for just a few bucks. They are usually fake and some will even use hacked accounts to do their job. While you may get a boost to your Snapchat score, no one wants to hack or encourage other nefarious activities.

At best, you’ll see a flood of spam or tons of surveys to fill out. At worst, you encourage these people to hack more Snapchat accounts and ruin the experience for hundreds of users.

Frequently Asked Questions

Snapchat is a lot of fun when you learn the ins and outs. Here are the answers to more questions about Snapchat.

Why can’t I see someone’s Snap Score?

The only way you can see someone else’s snap score is to add them as a friend and make them accept you as a friend. If both users have not pressed the ‘Add’ button, neither will see the other’s Snap Score. The same goes if someone has blocked or removed you.

If you were once able to see the Snap Score but can’t anymore, it probably means the two of you are no longer friends on Snapchat.

How often is the Snap Score updated?

Users can often see their own scores go up instantly, while it may take longer for you to see someone else’s score go up. There are many theories about how the Snapchat score is updated, but almost everyone agrees that it can take up to a week for a new score to appear on the platform.

While this doesn’t seem likely (it usually updates much faster), trying to help someone increase their score can slow down the score. If the score hasn’t been updated after a week, it’s probably because the activities the user participates in in the app (such as private messages) are not part of the scoring system.

Can I see a Snap Scoreboard?

Unfortunately not. While it would be great if there was a Snap Scoreboard, the developers haven’t added such a feature yet. You have to go to each friend’s profile as shown above, see their Snapscore. If you’re trying to get the highest Snapscore ever, you know there’s no way to keep up with the best Snappers in the world.

Does anyone know if I checked their Snapscore?

No. Unlike viewing Snaps, the other person will not know that you viewed their profile or their Snapscore. You can watch it as many times as you want, completely anonymously.
