How to Hide Best Friends on Snapchat
First, a little bit about best friends and why they exist. Your claimed best friends according to Snapchat are the people who you send and receive the most Snaps with recently. The list will constantly change depending on who you interact with the most recently.
You can change the number of top friends from the default 3 to more if you desire, but considering you want to hide one it’s best to keep at 3 to limit the chance of the person showing up on your list.
You can hide best friends by heading over to the Snapchat app and tapping on the list icon at the bottom right. That will take you to the list of all your Snapchat friends. At the top you will see your username, tap on it to see who is currently in your top friend list.
If there is a person you want to hide, scroll down to their name and tap on their name. From there tap on the settings icon that shows up and tap the “block” button. Then you will want to unblock them right away so you can continue to send them Snaps. The process of blocking and unblocking a friend removes them from your best friends list.
Note, if you block and unblock someone to remove them from your top list they may reappear on the list if you send or receive a bunch of Snaps from them. Either keep on going through the process of blocking and unblocking them or just Snap with someone different more so they take the other person’s place on your top 3 list.
