Snapchat is a popular social media platform that allows users to share photos and videos with their friends. However, there may be times when you want to block Snapchat on your Android device, either for yourself or for someone else. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to block Snapchat on Android.

Step 1: Open App Settings

To begin, open the settings of your Android device. You can do this by tapping on the settings app in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Find App Management

Once you are in the settings menu, scroll down and find the “Apps” or “App Management” option. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 2.1: App List

In the app management screen, you will see a list of all the apps installed on your device. Scroll through the list and find “Snapchat”. Tap on it to access its settings.

Step 3: Block Snapchat

After accessing Snapchat’s settings, look for an option called “Disable” or “Block”. The name may vary depending on your Android device’s manufacturer and operating system version. Tap on this option to block Snapchat.


If you cannot find a specific option to block Snapchat, look for options like “Force Stop” or “Uninstall”. These options will temporarily or permanently disable Snapchat.

Step 4: Confirm Blocking

After tapping on the disable or block option, you will see a confirmation prompt asking if you want to proceed with blocking Snapchat. Read through the prompt and tap “OK” or “Confirm” to confirm blocking.

Step 4.1: Additional Confirmation

In some cases, you may need to provide additional confirmation to block Snapchat. This could involve entering your device’s PIN or pattern lock, or using your fingerprint or facial recognition.

Step 5: Verify Block

Once you have successfully blocked Snapchat, return to your device’s home screen and try opening the app. You should see an error message indicating that the app has been blocked or disabled.

Step 5.1: Checking App List

If you want to double-check that Snapchat is blocked, go back to the app management screen in your device settings and locate Snapchat in the app list. It should now show as “Disabled” or “Blocked”.

Step 6: Enabling Snapchat

If you ever want to unblock Snapchat in the future, simply follow the same steps outlined above and look for an option called “Enable” or “Unblock” instead of “Disable” or “Block”.


The steps mentioned in this tutorial may vary slightly depending on your Android device’s manufacturer and operating system version.


Blocking Snapchat on Android is a straightforward process that can be done through the device settings. By following these steps, you can effectively block access to Snapchat on your Android device.

Whether it’s for yourself or someone else, blocking Snapchat can help manage screen time and ensure a more productive use of your Android device.
