Snapchat is a fun-filled social media networking app where you can share an unlimited number of snaps with your friends to maintain Streaks. Unlike Instagram or Facebook, the shared post will not be stored for too long. It will become extinct once it is viewed. Like other popular apps, you can use Snapchat to follow friends who have similar interests. To find your friends easily and quickly, Snapchat presents a feature called Quick Add. In simple words, your name will appear on someone else’s ‘Quick Add’ list if you both share mutual friends. Snapchat also presents to remove yourself from this feature. If you don’t know how to disable it, here is the guide to do it.

How Quick Add Works on Snapchat
The Quick Add feature on Snapchat is similar to Facebook’s People you may know and Instagram’s Suggested for you. You will get recommendations based on your location and other certain things. The Quick Add in Snapchat will suggest other Snapchat accounts. The suggestion will be based on mutual friends, accounts that are linked to your phone contacts, and recently joined accounts. If you mistakenly add someone on Quick Add, you can remove the account from your Snapchat friends list without any fuss. If you want, you can also block someone on Snapchat without notifying the others.
These are the simple ways to disable Quick Add on your Snapchat account. Disabling this feature will not affect the visibility of the post that you shared or the streaks that you maintain. At the same time, Snapchat will show all your suggestions while searching for new friends. Still, finding it difficult to turn off this feature? Use the below comments to mention it.
