How To Ask A Guy For His Snapchat On Instagram (6 Creative Ways)

Have you ever found yourself wanting to connect with your crush on Snapchat, but unsure of how to go about it? Here are six innovative methods that may assist you:


1. Send Him A Snapchat Request

If you're already linked with him on Instagram, sending a Snapchat request is a simple solution. This shouldn't seem unusual if you're already connected on another social media platform.

To ensure he recognizes it's you when he sees the request, use the same profile picture for both of your accounts. You could also give him a heads-up about the request by mentioning it in the comments section of one of his Instagram posts.

2. Message Him On Snapchat

Before making the friendship request, if you want to personally reach out to him on Snapchat, you can send him a message first. For instance, you could say, "Hey, it's funny to see you on Snapchat. I'd love to connect with you here!" If you link your Instagram account or mention your handle in the message, he'll know who you are.

For him to receive your snaps and messages, he'll need to have his privacy settings set to accept messages from everyone. Otherwise, your message will remain as "pending" until he adds you as a friend.

3. Tag Him In A Post

To tag the guy you want to connect with, you'll need to know his username. Enter the @ symbol in Snapchat, followed by his username. Unlike other platforms, Snapchat doesn't have a dropdown menu, so you'll need to know his username to tag him. By doing so, he'll be aware that you have a Snapchat account, and he may just add you on his own accord.

To increase the chances of him accepting your friend request, consider adding a message to the post where you tagged him, stating "Hey, I'd like to add you on Snapchat!" This way, when he receives the notification, he'll take your request into consideration.

Another option is to tag him on Instagram, along with other friends, in a post centered around encouraging them to find and follow you on Snapchat.

4. Use The Snapcode

Snapcodes provide a straightforward method to friend people on Snapchat. When messaging him on Instagram, you could send him your snapcode, making it easier for him to find you on Snapchat. If he doesn't seem to understand your intentions, you could be more direct and say "scan this when you have a chance".

5. Send Him A DM With A Screenshot Of Your Snapchat Bio

To eliminate any confusion, it's best to send him your Snapchat bio on Instagram. To do this, click the three dots located in the top right corner of your post, select "copy link", and paste it into a direct message.

6. Say "Hey! Can I Have Your Snapchat?"

Being direct is often the most effective approach to getting what you want. Ask for his Snapchat directly through a direct message. He could respond by providing you with his snapcode or username, making it possible for you to find him on Snapchat. There's no harm in asking, and many men are flattered by this, so don't hesitate to be straightforward.


In recent times, it's easy to connect with new people on Snapchat, even if you haven't met them in person. You could obtain anyone's handle by searching for their Snapcode or scanning it, adding each other as friends.

Although it's courteous to ask someone before following them on Snapchat, if they don't respond, there's no reason not to proceed and follow them. You could easily unfollow someone if they don't seem interested in your snaps.
