How to Unpin Someone on Snapchat

Do you have someone pinned to the top of your Snapchat chats and would love to unpin the person for some reason? Here’s how

Just like WhatsApp, the pinning feature on Snapchat is provided so that you can keep frequently contacted persons or groups at close reach. The chat/group will remain at the top of your messages with a pin (📌) icon next to their name.

The only difference is that, unlike WhatsApp,  the Snapchat pin feature comes in two forms, the  Snapchat+ subscription, and normal conversation pinning, so I believe you’re using the plus version before seeking to unpin a BFF chat.

You can unpin someone on Snapchat by tapping and holding the pinned chat on Snapchat then selecting “chat settings” then proceeding to select the “unpin conversation

There’s also a “Pin ‘name’ as your #1 BFF ❤️” option but that’s a feature that requires you to have an active Snapchat+ subscription.

For further clarification, let’s see the detailed process of how to unpin someone on Snapchat.

  1. Open your Snapchat app and move to your chats
  2. The person should already be at the top since he/she is already pinned
  3. Tap and hold on the name to bring up quick options
  4. Tap on “Chat Settings” from the option
  5. Click on “Unpin Conversation
