This is the easiest way to know if you have been blocked on Snapchat. If you could see them there previously and check without finding them, then it means you have been blocked. Be sure to confirm that you didn’t remove them from your contact list also.
Browse for them in the Snapchat net, if you can see and re-add them, they may have removed you, but not blocked you. If they are a friend, ask them about it. If not, either cut your losses with people who don’t want you, or try re-adding them and see what happens.
Another clue can be found in your chat history. This can only be used if you have had previous conversations with the person you suspect.
Open the Snapchat app and go to the conversations menu by clicking on the dialogue bubble icon at the bottom of the screen to the left of the camera snap button. If the user who you suspect blocked you isn’t emerging in your Chat list despite having a recent conversation with them, that’s an important indication. However, you still need to move on to the next step to confirm the block.

If you have had previous conversations, try sending a fresh one. If you see a red-lettered message saying ‘Failed to send your message – Tap to try again,’ it could mean they blocked you.
If you see ‘Pending’ and a gray icon instead of blue or pink, then you have been deleted from their contacts list.
If a user has blocked you, they won’t show up when you search for them on Snapchat. If they’ve deleted you from their Friends list, however, you should be able to find them by searching for them.
There’s a difference between being blocked and being removed from the contact list. When blocked, you won’t find any information about their account. And if removed from their contact list, you’d still see some info about them and be able to re-add them.
Hingeing on their privacy settings, nonetheless, they may not receive them if they only allow their friends to contact them.
To search for the user who you suspect blocked you, tap the Search function at the top of the screen on the conversations tab or snap tab, marked by a magnifying glass icon. Start typing the username or full name of the user you want to look up. But more preferably the Username.
Note: You’ll get more accurate results if you know the user’s username. There could be several other users with similar full names, but usernames are all unique. Likewise, full names can be changed anytime, whereas usernames are permanent.
If the user appears in search results, they’ll emerge under the My Friends label if you’re still in their Friends list or under the Add Friends tab if they scratched you from their Friends list.
If the user you’re looking for doesn’t materialize at all despite scouring for their exact username, then they either blocked you or deleted their Snapchat account.
This can be used for users who post very often and update their stories. Go to your stories tab and check if you can see any of their stories. It’s not certain though but it’s suggestive of something amiss
If all the steps above prove futile, then they probably deleted their account.
