Snapchat is a great social media app. But sometimes relationships come and go, so you might want to know how to remove best friends on Snapchat so that you can sever the link.

The Best Friends list on Snapchat displays the users you interact with the most on the app. While it can be a convenient way to keep track of your closest friends, it can also lead to some uncomfortable situations if someone you'd rather not have on that list is there.

In this article, we'll show you how to remove best friends on Snapchat, so you can customize your profile to your liking and have more control over who appears on this list.

How to remove someone from your best friends list on Snapchat without unadding them

Snapchat's algorithm automatically assigns the "Best Friends" title to the users with whom you interact the most on the app. The app tracks your interactions with other users, including sending Snaps and Chat messages, as well as viewing each other's stories.

The Best Friends list is dynamic and constantly updates based on your interactions with other users. So, if you start interacting more frequently with someone, they may be added to your Best Friends list, while someone else may be bumped off.

While Snapchat doesn't allow you to edit your list of best friends, you can remove someone from your best friends list on Snapchat without unadding them by just stopping sending them Snaps or Chats. They will fall off your Best Friends list over time.

How long does it take for someone to get off your best friends list on Snapchat?

Well, it can take some time for the algorithm to update your Best Friends list based on your changed interaction patterns.

However, you can fast-track this process by completely stopping interacting with that person as well as starting interacting more frequently with other users whom you want to be on your best friends list.

Avoid sending the person you want to be off your Best Friends list Snaps and Chat messages (lose the Snapchat streak), and choose to not view their stories. Conversely, frequently send Snaps and Chat messages to people who you would like to be on your Best Friends list.

By doing this, they will fall off your Best Friends list as well as your Snapchat Plus planets system sooner. And that's the quickest way to remove best friends on Snapchat.
