How to know if someone deleted their Snapchat account?
There are several reasons why someone can delete their Snapchat account. The reasons are subjective and a topic for another post. You're here to know if someone deleted their Snapchat account & how to confirm it.
#1 Search for their username
The search bar on Snapchat will help you find all the Snapchat accounts matching your search term. Search for their username and if you can't find their profile, either they have deleted their Snapchat account or they have blocked you. There's a slight chance of glitches on the Snapchat app. Considering that, you might not be able to see their profile. So wait for some time before you try again.
#2 Check messages
To be double sure, you can check the chat history and send messages. If they receive the messages, that means their account is active. If they were recently active, you can see that status as well.

How to know if someone blocked you on Snapchat?
When someone blocks you, Snapchat will not send any notifications about this, no social media platforms will. However, if you frequently chat with that person, you'd know it.
Let's check out the ways you can confirm if you're blocked by someone on Snapchat.
#1 Check from other profile
When a person blocks your Snapchat account, you won't be able to search for that person's username in the search bar. Even if you fully type their username, their profile won't show up in the search results.
On the other side, their Snapchat account will be visible to other users. So if you have any other Snapchat account, switch to that and search for the person who you think has blocked you.
If you find their profile from the other Snapchat account, it's confirmed that that person's profile has blocked your Snapchat account.
You can create a new Snapchat account if you don't have any spare account and don't trust anyone else to help you with this.
#2 Wait for 30 days
If someone has deleted their Snapchat account, their account will be in the archives for 30 days. That is, the person has 30 days to get their account back before their account is permanently deleted by Snapchat.
We understand, 30 days is too long to see if the account you're looking for is a deleted account of a Snapchat user. But this is a sure-shot way to confirm the same.
#3 Check your chat history
When someone deleted their Snapchat account, the conversation disappears and you won't be able to visit their profile, since there is no means by which you can find their profile.

How to know if someone removed you from Snapchat?
#1 Send a message to check
The easiest way to know if someone removed you from Snapchat is to send a message. If the message is delivered, the person has not removed you. If the message is not delivered and there is no notification of the same, it is possible that the person has removed you from their friend list.
#2 Use the Snapchat map
Another way to know if someone removed you from Snapchat is to check the Snapchat map. If you can see their Bitmoji on the snap map, it means they have not removed you. However, if their Bitmoji is no longer visible on the snap map, it is possible that they have removed you from their friend list.
#3 Check their Snapchat score
You can also check the person's Snapchat score to determine if they have removed you. If their score is no longer visible to you, it is possible that they have removed you from their friend list. Snapchat keeps a score for each user, which is a measure of their activity on the platform. If you're unable to see the person's score, it could indicate that they've removed you as a friend.
#4 Check your story subscriptions
You can also check your story subscriptions to see if the person's story is still appearing in your subscription list. If their story is no longer appearing, it is possible that they have removed you from their friend list.
#5 Check your friend's list
Finally, you can check your friends list to see if the person's name is still appearing. If their name is no longer appearing in your friend list, it is possible that they have removed you from their friend list.
#6 Check Snapchat maps
If the person has enabled their location sharing, you can check if their Bitmoji appears on the Snapchat map. If you're unable to see their Bitmoji, it could indicate that they've removed you as a friend.
A deactivated Snapchat account will still show up in your list of friends, but their score and snaps will be hidden. If an account remains deactivated for 30 days, it will be permanently deleted.
If you delete your own account, you will not be able to reuse the same username and all of your snaps, friends, and data will be deleted.
If you decide to reactivate your account, only app can help you with that. That is, you will need to log in on the app.
