How to Add Friends Using Snapcodes
You can use Snapcodes to add friends in several ways:
- Scan the Snapcode in the Snapchat app to add the associated friend.
- Take a snap of your friend’s Snapcode as it’s displayed on their device.
- Take a snap of your friend’s Snapcode in a message or email they sent you that contains it.
When your friend is added, a small tab at the top of the page lets you know it was successful.
On an iPhone, hit the power and home buttons at the same time, or the volume up and down buttons (Android). When a screenshot is successfully taken, your device may make a shutter sound and the screen may flash. It is automatically saved to the default photo folder that you have, whether it be your camera roll, screenshot folder, or another location.
Similarly, with your Snapcode, your friends can add you to their Snapchats. Find out how to share your code by reading here.
Tap your profile icon in the upper-left corner of the screen.
You should see your Snapcode here along with other profile information. Select it to open it up and make it larger.
Your friend can then take a snap of your code to add you to their Snapchat friend list.
