How to add someone on snap without them knowing how
Here are five different methods via wich you can add someone on Snap, without them receiving a message “added by username search”. Depending on what your possibilities are choose the method on how to add them.
The real-life method
If you know that person in the real lie, the best way to do this is to ask them to use their phone. Figure some good reason why… Maybe you could pretend that your phone is dead and that you would like to check your commute or if there is a free spot at a spin class or w/e. Just make it believable.
While you are using their phone, do the following:
- Open his or her Snapchat app
- add yourself

Ask a friend
You could ask your friend to send your username to that person. But for this, you need a bit more creativity to figure out why he or she should add you. But it is definitely doable.
If you have that person in your quick add tab, you are in luck. If you add that person via the quick add feature, they won’t be notified that you have added them by search because you have not done that.
Do you have the phone number of that user?
If you do, you are in luck. Because you can easily add them on Snapchat, and it won’t send the message “added by username.”
Here is how you can do this:
- Open your Snap
- Go to “Discover”
- Tap on the button in the upper right corner with the + sign
- Tap on “My Contacts”
- Search for contact on that person
- Add that contact to your Snapchat
This is not exactly a guide on adding someone on Snapchat without it saying added by username, but it works very well.
Just search for that user, add him or her to your Snapchat contacts. And if they ask how you have found them, just tell them that you have found them from mutual friends and that you don’t know why it says from search.
This is the last resource method, but it works, and it is still better than not trying!
