How to increase snap score?

If you are wondering why is my Snapchat score is not changing, note this! Your Snapchat score is calculated using a super-secret, special equation that combines the following,

  • The number of Snaps you’ve sent and received.
  • The Stories you’ve posted, and other factors.

So, if you want to increase your Snapchat score, start posting your snaps and stories more frequently. Also, expand your reach by adding more friends.

Why can't I see someone's Snapchat score if we are friends?

When you cannot see someone's Snapchat score, there’s a strong chance that the person has unfriended you. Snapchat does not notify you when someone unfriends or blocks you. However, you can verify this by sending a message to the person. If you see a grey Snapchat icon (an arrow) next to the message, it should ring a bell. Yes, it means you have either been blocked or removed from the person’s friend list. The snap score is only displayed when 2 individuals have added each other as a friend.

Hope that makes sense!
