How To Tell If Someone Checked Your Location On Snapchat

Unfortunately, there is no obvious way you can find out who checked your location on Snapchat.

However, there are a few things you can watch out for that may indicate someone has viewed your location:

1. They Mention Your Location

The most obvious way to tell if someone has viewed your location on Snapchat is if they bring it up in conversation.

If they do this and you haven’t disclosed your location anywhere else, online or in conversation, then they have obviously viewed your Snap location.

2. They Viewed A Story That You Shared Exclusively To The Map

If you share a snap just to the map, not to your story or to any of your friends, the only way they can view this story is by browsing the map.

If you see that someone has viewed your map story then they will have viewed your location.

To check who viewed your story all you have to do is tap the ‘eyeball’ icon on the Snap, on your profile page. This will give you a list of users who have viewed it.

How To Stop People Viewing Your Location On Snapchat

To prevent people from viewing your location on Snapchat, follow these steps:

  1. Open Snapchat.
  2. Tap your Bitmoji icon in the top left to head to your profile page.
  3. Then tap the settings cog in the top right to open settings.
  4. Scroll down to the ‘Privacy Control’ heading and tap ‘See my location’, it should be the 6th option under the heading.
  5. Tap the toggle switch next to ‘Ghost mode’.
  6. Select how long you want to activate ghost mode for; 3 hours, 24 hours, or until turned off.

Your location will now be hidden until the specified time elapses or until you turn ghost mode off again.
