It is no secret that most Snapchat usernames are complex and hard to keep in mind. This is because of the millions of users the app has so it is quite difficult to find a username of your choice.
Your username has to be unique which in this case includes a combination of letters, numbers, and underscores.
Committing usernames to memory requires great skill so how do you find the accounts of deleted friends if you do not have their usernames in mind?
In this article, you will learn how to find deleted friends on Snapchat without a username.
How to Find Deleted Friends on Snapchat Without Username
You might have removed your friend on Snapchat by mistake and you need to add them back. This is not a problem as there are several ways to do this.
1. Add Friend
This method is particularly helpful and is the easiest if you just delete your friend on Snapchat.
Although you have removed that user as your friend, they have not removed you as their friend so there is still a pending request from them that when you accept, will make you both friends on Snapchat.
Open the Snapchat app on your device > Log in to your account > Select the person icon at the top of the screen to access the Add Friends page > Scroll through the list of users who have sent you an Add request till you find that of your friend(s) and accept.
Another option you can use if you don’t have the username of your friend is their snapcode. A snapcode is Snapchat’s version of a QR code. It has your Bitmoji in the center of it and when scanned, it leads to your snap profile and lets whoever scanned it add you as a friend.
There are many ways to scan a Snapcode. You can either use your gallery, a QR code scanner, or most commonly, the Snapchat app.
Select Snapchat on your phone > Log in to your account > Select the person icon at the top of the screen to navigate to the Add Friends page > This is where you will scan the snap code> In the far right of the search bar, select the small Snapchat icon > Scroll through your pictures till you find the Snapcode of you for friend > Select it to scan and then add your friend when prompted.
3. Contact List
In the case that you do have your friends’ contacts saved on your phone, then you can use this to find them on Snapchat and add them back.
You just have to permit Snapchat to access your Contacts. Open the Settings app on your device > In the search bar, search for Snapchat and select it > Under the Permissions, find the Contacts option and toggle it on
Now that you have done this, you have given Snapchat access to your contacts and the app will find all your contacts that have a Snapchat account.
Open Snapchat on your phone > Select the person icon to move to the Add Friends Page > Scroll down and locate the Quick Add Section > At the side, select All Contacts > This will take you to a new page where all your Contacts are displayed > Scroll through till you find the one you want and add them.
Just because you might not remember the username of your friend does not mean you have lost them forever. These methods can be applied to anyone and not just your friends.
