It is a place that has made many people popular and even given them a new way to earn a living by creating a new way to do business.

How To Block Someone on Snapchat
This is the safest way of restricting someone from seeing your snaps and stories and not offending them by letting them know that they have been booted off the list is to simply block them. Blocking a person will prevent them from seeing your stories, and they won’t be able to message you or send you a snap. It has the same effect as unfriending someone but an unfriended friend can again send you a friend request.
But this is not the case with a blocked person, once a person is blocked for them it will be like you vanished. If they try to search your name on the app, it won’t show so they will not be able to contact you in any way. Additionally, in the case of Shared Stories, these blocked people won’t be allowed to join in even if some other friends try to add them. The app will be notified and they will be restricted and removed from the Shared Story.
If you want to block someone on Snapchat all you have to do is follow the same steps as done for removing a friend but in the end, instead of tapping Remove Friend, tap Block. You can unblock a person by opening the Settings option, scrolling down Accounts Actions, and in that the Blocked option. Go to the blocked section and tap the name you want to unblock.
It is rightly said in the Holy Qur’an that if something disturbs the peace of your heart then give it up, so if someone is troubling your peace on Snapchat just give them up as well. Nobody is worth losing your peace over. In real life, it may be difficult to just remove someone from your life but digitally it’s just a click away. Just press Remove Friend and celebrate.
