If I Accept Someone on Snapchat, Will They Know

Difference Between Add Friend and Accept Friend on Snapchat

When you see add friend, it means that you’re not friends and neither of you has added the other. On the other hand, when you see accept friend, it means that they’ve added you or they’re subscribed to you but you haven’t added them back.

When you have someone as a friend, it won’t say accept friend but if you remove them as a friend it will. This is because they still have you added and are subscribed to you so the only option you have is to accept them. If you accept them, then you’ll be friends again.

Another reason why it says accept friend if it didn’t say that they added you is that you didn’t see the notification. Sometimes Snapchat glitches and doesn’t notify you when someone has added you. If you had no internet connection at the time, then you wouldn’t have been able to receive notifications.

If you want to accept the individual, tap and hold their username then tap Accept. If you don’t want the individual to appear in your friend’s list, you can remove them as a friend.

Since they removed you first, and you’ve removed them, you’re no longer friends and neither of you are subscribed to the other.

It’s essentially the same as adding somebody as a Snapchat friend again, even though they can nonetheless chat with you or view your stories if it’s visible to everybody who follows you. In this scenario, you can update or restrict them in the settings.

When someone hasn’t removed you after you’ve removed them, they’ll be subscribed to you until you choose to add them back.

In most cases, it hasn’t come to their attention that you’ve removed them which is why they haven’t removed you back. Although Snapchat doesn’t notify someone when they’ve been removed, the person’s name who removed them will be in their Recents list so they may be able to tell.  If they did decide to remove you, then it’ll say add friend if you decided to search for their name.
