How to unpin someone on Snapchat

When you don’t need a chat to always appear at the top of your list, you can unpin them. This process is identical to the way you pin someone, where you long-press their name and select the unpin option from within Chat Settings.

  1. Launch Snapchat and go to the Chat tab.
  2. Press and hold on the conversation you wish to pin.
  3. Tap Chat Settings.
  4. Select Unpin Conversation.

Can you tell if someone pinned you on Snapchat?

No. When you pin a conversation, that information stays on your account. The other person is not notified if you pin them.
