How to Unblock Someone on Snapchat?
Like locking people in Snapchat hide their accounts from you and yours from them, you can’t search for their names and then unlock them. Instead, access your list of blocked users from Snapchat settings. This is how you do it.
Open Snapchat and tap on your Bitmoji or username in the upper left corner of the screen.
Touch the icon of gear in the upper right corner to access Settings.
Swipe up to view the Account Actions section, and then tap Blocked.
You’ll see a list of usernames of people you’ve blocked. Tap the X that appears to the right of the username of the person you want to unlock.
Snapchat asks you to confirm. Tap Yes if you want to unblock this person.
After you unblock someone, their username disappears from your blocked list.
What to do After Unblocking Someone?
Blocking cuts off all contact between you and the blocked user, and the person is removed from your friends list. After unlocking, you will need to search for the friend and add them back.
To do this, type your username into the search field at the top, then tap Add to the right of your profile photo and username. If the friend is not a public user, they also have to add you again.
