How To View Someones Snapchat Story Without Them Knowing

I have always been curious about what my friends are up to on Snapchat. Sometimes, I wish I could view someone’s Snapchat story without them knowing. It’s not that I want to invade their privacy, but sometimes I just want to see what they are posting without them knowing that I am watching. After doing some research, I have found some methods that might just help you view someone’s Snapchat story without them ever finding out.
So without further ado, let’s dive into the details and learn how to become a Snapchat story ninja!

Method 1: Airplane Mode

The first method involves using the Airplane Mode trick. Here’s how it works:

  1. Open Snapchat and let all the stories load.
  2. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center on iOS or swipe down from the top of the screen on Android to enable Airplane Mode.
  3. After enabling Airplane Mode, go back to Snapchat and view the story you want to see without fear of them knowing you’re watching.
  4. Once you’ve finished viewing the story, close Snapchat and disable Airplane Mode. This will restore your internet connection.

This method works because when you are in Airplane Mode, Snapchat won’t be able to send the read receipt, so the person whose story you’re watching won’t know that you’ve viewed it.

Method 2: Using Third-Party Apps

If the Airplane Mode trick doesn’t appeal to you or you want more options, there are third-party apps available that claim to allow you to view someone’s Snapchat story without them knowing. These apps usually require you to log in with your Snapchat credentials and act as a middleman between Snapchat and you. However, I must warn you that using third-party apps can be risky. There is always a chance of your account getting banned or your personal information being compromised. So, proceed with caution if you choose this method.

Method 3: Snapchat Story Downloader

If you simply want to save someone’s Snapchat story without letting them know, you can use a Snapchat Story Downloader. These are online tools that allow you to enter someone’s username and save their story for offline viewing. However, this method does not allow you to view the story within Snapchat itself and requires you to use a separate app or website to view the downloaded story.


While it is technically possible to view someone’s Snapchat story without them knowing using the methods mentioned above, it is important to consider the ethical and legal implications. Invading someone’s privacy without their consent is not a respectful or responsible thing to do. Always remember to respect people’s boundaries and privacy. Snapchat is designed to give users control over who sees their content, so it’s best to enjoy the app as intended and respect the privacy of others.
