Like every other social networking app, your friends on Snapchat can see your media. If you want to avoid that you will need to delete or block a particular friend.

Here in this guide I will show you how to delete friends on snapchat and block them if you never want to see them.

Deleting someone from your friend’s list will help you in preventing them from looking at your private snaps. Whereas blocking them will completely prevent them from seeing any of your content.
