Does Snapchat Show What Filter You Use

In short, yes. Snapchat does show by default what kind of filter you used on your photo, whether that is being sent to another user or being posted to your story.

As was said before, this can be played around, and there are ways in which you can still post a picture to Snapchat without the filter being shown.

Why Does Snapchat Show What Filter You Use

The reason why Snapchat shows other users what filters you used is because perhaps another person that looks at your story finds the filter to be something they want also to use so it is good to know what filter it was that was used as well as having easy access to the filter as well.
