When it comes to using apps like Snapchat, you may wonder who you’re communicating with. Whether you’re investigating a current Snapchat connection, someone who wants to follow and connect with you, or want to find a specific user, there are Snapchat search tools that can lead you to find a profile.
Snapchat is an app which works with your Smartphone and, therefore, syncs up with your address book. If you have a user in the contacts of your phone, their Snapchat link will show up for you. However, if they have you in their phone contacts and you don’t have them in yours, only they will see you. If you suspect a username is someone you know, add their name and number to your cell phone and see if it shows up as matching the username you suspect!
Please note that Snapchat now has an “opt-out” feature for those who do not want to be discovered through their phone number. Since the person you’re looking for may have opted out it is possible that a ‘username’ search will serve you better (see below) than an address book search alone.
Add … Then Delete
You also have the option to start following a user (by adding them) then look through their story or public snaps to see who they are and view their profile. If the person isn’t whom you thought, delete them. If their profile is vague and you still don’t have confirmation of their real-life identity, unfollow them and try other means to find out who they are.
You can also search by username directly on Snapchat.
Unfortunately, as with all self-directed searches, one does not always find the results one hoped. If your Snapchat searches have not been what you wanted, consider using a master search.
One option is Social Catfish. Instead of only being able to conduct a phone number or username search, Social Catfish reverse username search has an ‘across the net’ expert algorithm search method. This will let you search all major search engines and their link to apps and social media accounts.
You will be able to search by username, social media pages, legal name, nickname, phone numbers and more. Consider this method if other results haven’t been useful.
