How To Unsync Contacts On Snapchat

So you want to learn how to unsync contacts on Snapchat, huh? Well, you’ve come to the right place! As an avid Snapchat user myself, I know how important it can be to have control over who appears in your contact list. Whether you’ve recently gone through a breakup or simply want to remove someone from your Snapchat circle, I’ll walk you through the process step by step.

Before we begin, it’s important to note that while you can unsync contacts on Snapchat, this action will not block or remove them as friends on the app. It only hides their contact information from your Snapchat account. With that said, let’s get started!

Step 1: Launch Snapchat

To unsync a contact on Snapchat, you first need to open the app on your device. Locate the Snapchat icon on your home screen or app drawer, and tap on it to launch the application.

Step 2: Access Your Profile

Once you’re in the Snapchat app, you’ll need to navigate to your profile. To do this, simply tap on the avatar icon in the top-left corner of the screen. This will take you to your Snapchat profile, where you can manage various settings.

Step 3: Open Settings

In your Snapchat profile, you’ll find a gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen. Tap on this icon to access your settings. This is where you can customize various aspects of your Snapchat experience.

Step 4: Manage My Contacts

Within the settings menu, locate and tap on the “Manage” option under the “My Contacts” section. This is where you can manage your Snapchat contacts and customize who appears in your contact list.

Step 5: Unsync a Contact

Now that you’re in the “Manage My Contacts” section, you’ll see a list of all your Snapchat contacts. Scroll through the list until you find the contact you want to unsync, and tap on their name.

A new screen will appear, showing you additional details about the contact. At the top-right corner of this screen, you’ll see an “Unsync” button. Tap on this button to unsync the contact from your Snapchat account.

Step 6: Confirm the Action

After tapping the “Unsync” button, a confirmation message will appear, asking if you’re sure you want to unsync the contact. Take a moment to double-check that you’ve selected the correct contact, as unsyncing cannot be undone easily.

If you’re certain about your decision, tap on the “Unsync” or “Confirm” button to proceed. The contact will now be unsynced from your Snapchat account.

And there you have it! You’ve successfully unsynced a contact on Snapchat. Remember, this action only removes their contact information from your Snapchat account; it does not block or remove them as friends on the app. If you change your mind in the future, you can always sync the contact again by following the same steps.


Unsyncing contacts on Snapchat can be a useful feature if you want to have more control over your contact list. Just remember that it only hides their contact information from your account and doesn’t remove them as friends. So, keep that in mind before making any decisions.

Now that you know how to unsync contacts on Snapchat, go ahead and take control of your contact list! Happy snapping!
