What Does Other Snapchatters Mean? -3 Possibles Explanations
Other Snapchatters are Snapchat users who have viewed your Story, but you are not friends with them. It could be someone who has unfriended or blocked you after seeing your Story. Or it could just be some random unknown people who came across your account and viewed your Story.
If you are seeing Other Snapchatters on your snap story, it’s possible that:
1. Someone Saw Your Story and Blocked You
When someone views your Story on Snapchat and blocks you, you will not be able to see their name on your Snapchat story’s viewers’ section. Instead, it will say Other Snapchatters. So, if you see Other Snapchatters in your Snap story viewers’ list, someone has probably seen your Story and then has blocked you.
2. You Didn’t Accept Their Friend Request
If someone isn’t friends with you on Snapchat and he/she sees your Story, their name will show under Other Snapchatters. Possibly, that person has sent you a friend request, and you haven’t accepted it, or it could be vice-versa.
3. You are No Longer Snapchat Friends With That Person
If your profile is public, other users who aren’t friends with you can still see your stories by searching for your username. So, the other Snapchatter on your Story could probably be someone who isn’t friends with you anymore, but they viewed your Story.
How To View Other Snapchatters?
To view Other Snapchatters, open your posted Story> viewers list > and look under Other Snapchatters. But you can only see the names of those who haven’t blocked you. There is no direct to view who has blocked you but only some workarounds that can help you get an approximate idea.
So, you can easily know if the user showing under Other Snapchatters is someone who has unadded you as a friend or if you simply aren’t friend with them yet. But if it’s someone who has blocked you after seeing your Story, you can’t really know for sure who they are. Let’s explore in detail the best ways to view Other Snapchatters, in case it is possible.
1. See Who Unadded You as a Friend
If the Other Snapchatter is a friend who has unfriended you, follow these steps to confirm:
- Select the chat option at the bottom of the screen on Snapchat.
- Search for the person who you think has unadded you.
- If a snap’s status reads Status is Pending, with a gray arrow beside their name, it means that the particular person has unfriended you and viewed your Story.
2. See Who Has Blocked You
Other Snapchatters could also possibly be someone who has blocked you after viewing your Story. Let’s take a look at how to find out if someone has blocked you on Snapchat:
- Open Snapchat.
- Tap the magnifying glass icon in the upper left corner.
- Enter the username of the person who you think has blocked you after viewing your Story.
- His/her name might not appear if he/she has blocked you on Snapchat.
Note: This can only help you get an idea of that Other Snapchatter is. The person you suspect might or might not be the one who has viewed your Story and blocked you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Other Snapchatters See Your Friends?
No, Other Snapchatters can’t see your friends. In fact, no one can see your friends, not even the users whom you have added on Snapchat. At best, when one of your friends on Snapchat sees the profile of your other friend, they will only know that they both share a mutual friend, but they won’t know that the mutual friend is you. Or a friend may see your other friends in their Quick Add list, but again, he/she won’t know if you are friends with those Quick Add accounts.
What Is “+1 more” On Snapchat?
You do not have any connection to any of the users that appear under the +1 more category in Snapchat. In other words, a +1 on Snapchat means that you and the other person are not mutual friends. You have been added to their friend list, but they have not been added to yours. So, if you have made your profile public, +1 more may appear in your story viewers list.
How to Tell if Someone Unfriended You on Snapchat?
To find out if someone has unfriended you on Snapchat, open the app on your phone and navigate to the chat box. Find the friend who you suspect has unadded you. If there is a grey arrow next to their name and it says Status is Pending, the person has likely unfriended you.
Why You May See Other Snapchatters on Your Story?
You may see other Snapchatters on your Story because your Snapchat story is set to Public, which is why it is visible to everyone– even those who are not your friends. Another possibility is that these people sent you a friend request, but you did not respond to it, or vice-versa.
Why Does it Show Other Snapchatters But You’re Still Friends?
If you see Other Snapchatters even though you are still friends, it’s possible that person has added you as a friend, but you haven’t added them back. Or the viewer has unfriended you, and you don’t know about it.
