How to add Friends manually on Snapchat

If you don’t have a Snapcode handy, you can add friends the old-fashioned way — by username!

Tap Add Friends to see a list of other ways to add friends.
Enter the Snapchat username if you have it.

  1. Tap on a Contact to add existing contacts who already use Snapchat
  2. (if you granted Snapchat access to your contacts).
  3. Tap Add by Snapcode if your friend sent you a screenshot of their
  4. Snapcode. (Snapchat will show you your camera roll with images it thinks might be a Snapcode at the top. Just tap the Snapcode screenshot to add your friend.)
  5. Tap Add Nearby if you and your friend(s) have “Add Nearby” open. You’ll be able to see their username and add them to your friends list. This is a particularly handy feature if you’ve got a big group of friends you’d like to add.
