How to see mutual friends on Snapchat

Snapchat is a great app if we want to keep in touch with our friends, and also if we want a little more privacy than usual (for example with the possibility to delete messages that the other person saved). But what if we're looking for people we already know? How to see mutual friends on Snapchat? Here's how.

Sometimes we just want our close friends on the app, but why not also expand that list by adding friends of friends? It might be a nice way to have more people to interact with. But how to look for them? We definitely want to avoid erroneously adding strangers.

So let's look at how to be sure we are only adding mutual friends on Snapchat.

How to see mutual friends on Snapchat

It is very easy to see mutual friends on the social media app. Follow these steps:

  • Open the app and tap the add ("+") button;
  • Go to the "Quick Add" section;
  • If you're mutual friends with someone, you'll see under their name a "# mutual friends" hashtag;
  • Here you can also add them if you like.

It is as simple as that, just look on the list to find mutual friends.

How to use the Quick Add feature

The Quick Add is a great feature to use to find mutual friends and people you might know, but keep in mind that the list is populated randomly. So, you might not find every mutual friend the first time you open it up, but it is definitely worth it to keep checking back.


Also, keep in mind that the other person will not be notified that you have mutual friends with them and will simply see a stranger trying to add them to their friends list. So, if they refuse, don't give up!
