Your Snapchat Score is a good indicator of your activity on the popular platform, but can you hide your Snapchat Score? It makes sense to not want certain people to see it, especially since Snapchat does not notify you when someone checks your Score. While there's no way you can hide your Snapchat Score completely (Snapchat doesn't have a dedicated button to toggle), there are ways to limit who can see it.
Note: there's no reliable third-party option to hide your Snapchat Score, even though many services claim to do so. We do not recommend trying to use them, as that can put the information on your profile at risk.

How to Hide Your Snapchat Score From Everyone Except Your Friends
If you want only your friends to see your Snapchat Score but exclude everyone else, you can limit the ways users interact with your profile. Specifically, you can make it so that only your friends can see your stories or contact you.
- Tap the gear icon in the top-right corner.
- Scroll down to the "Privacy Controls" section, and tap "View My Story."
- Tap "My Friends."
- Tap the caret icon in the top-left corner to return to the previous page.
- Tap "Contact Me."

How to Hide Your Snapchat Score From Specific People
You can't hide your Snapchat Score from anyone on your friends list. If you really want to prevent them from seeing it, you have to either remove them from your friends list or block them.
FYI: if you're unable to see your friend's Snapchat Score increase, it's not because they blocked you. (You wouldn't see it at all if they did.) They have probably not been active on the platform, particularly, in the last 24 hours.
- Open Snapchat and tap your avatar icon in the top-left corner.
- Tap "My Friends."
- Long-press the person you want to remove or block.
- Tap "Manage Friendship" in the menu.
- Tap "Remove Friend" or "Block."
Should You Hide Your Snap Score?
Although Snapchat uses a secret equation to calculate your Score, the number of interactions you have on the platform is a known factor that influences it. When you limit the number of people who can interact with your profile, whether through Snaps or Stories, it can negatively impact your score.
If you value your privacy more than the potential negative impact on your Snapchat Score, hiding it is a wise choice. But even if it takes a hit, you can always do more to increase your Snapchat score, such as sending more Snaps, sharing and viewing stories, and keeping up your "Streak."
