It feels good and satisfying to view other’s Snapchat stories. Once you view someone’s story on Snapchat, they immediately get notified. Sometimes it is required to watch someone’s story without them knowing, but is that possible? Yes, it’s possible and here I will tell you how to view someone’s Snapchat story without them knowing.

Any snap posted on Snapchat will be active for 24 hours. After 24 hours the snap automatically gets deleted, and you will be notified of whoever has seen the snap.

The best feature of Snapchat is that no one can view your snap/story without your knowledge.

But, sometimes you may need to bypass that. So, let’s look into how to view someone’s Snapchat story secretly.

Note: There is no direct method to do this. At Roboniqe we do not encourage you to do so. But, in some cases, it is required. Which method you choose to utilize, will be completely at your own risk.

How to View Snapchat Stories Without Them Knowing (Anonymously)

Method 1 – Using the Airplane Mode Method:

Here we will get into how you can easily view someone’s Snapchat story anonymously.

  • Start the Snapchat app on your mobile phone and log inside the app with your account.
  • Then you will have to click on the Discover icon on the bottom right corner of the screen in the app.

  • On this page, you will have to refresh it again and let Snapchat load all the stories of your friends/contacts.
  • Once you are on the Stories page, refresh it to make sure all the Snapchat stories are fully loaded.
  • When all the stories are ready to be viewed, close the Snapchat app and remove it from the background running apps as well.
  • Now, Turn ON the Airplane mode on your smartphone.

  • Open the Snapchat app and now you can view anyone’s Snapchat story without them knowing.
  • After you have successfully viewed all the stories, do not forget to clear the cache of the Snapchat app.
  • Clear app cache while Airplane Mode is still ON. If you are on an iPhone go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage > Snapchat and look for the Offload app. It will clear the app cache.
  • If you are on Android Open Snapchat App > Tap on Profile > Open Settings by clicking the gear icon >Tap on Clear Cache under Account Actions

Method 2 – Make Another Snapchat Account:

There is another way to view Snapchat stories without them knowing, and that is by creating another Snapchat account.

Logging into a secondary Snapchat account makes this task a bit easier.  Here your information will not be revealed, but the only problem here is to convince people to accept your friend request.

Method 3 – Use of Friend’s Snapchat Account

Well, this sounds a bit easier than method #2. Here, it is not so difficult to convince your friend to view a mutual friend’s Snapchat story.

The only point to keep in mind is that you should not misuse your friend’s Snapchat account.

Method 4 – Using Third-Party Apps

You can also view someone’s Snapchat stories without knowing them using third-party apps. These apps can provide anonymous access to Snapchat stories. Which means you can watch Snapchat stories anonymously.

But you have to use these apps with caution. One problem is that you may have to pay a fee for these apps. Another problem is that you have to make sure it is 100% legal to view someone’s Snapchat story using these kinds of apps which provide anonymous access to someone’s account.

Also, use these apps from reliable sources only. If these apps can provide anonymous access to someone other’s Snapchat stories then you are also at risk.

Popular Third-Party Apps to view Snapchat stories anonymously

I am listing some popular third-party apps that can do the work for you. These apps are reliable and you can check them out.


XMobi is a popular app that can help you to view Snapchat stories without knowing them. It can capture screenshots of stories, posts, and messages from Snapchat. These screenshots are stored on its servers for user access.

It has a simple and stable interface. This app is available for both Android and iPhone. It means you can view Snapchat stories anonymously both on Android and iPhone.


uMobix is another popular app that lets you access someone’s Snapchat account anonymously. It also lets you access photos that a user posted on Snapchat but deleted later.

Yet I could not find whether it can provide you access to Stories or not. But if it provides access to even deleted photos, deleted messages, contact lists, usernames, bitmoji, and even location. Then it could provide you access to stories as well. Make sure to check it here.


Can view Snapchat stories without being friends?

No, you can’t see someone’s stories without being in his/her friend list.

Can we find how many times a story was seen?

No, you can’t find it. You can just see if a story has been seen or not if not seen anonymously.


Snapchat is one of the most commonly used Social Media Platforms. It has a user base of 229 million global users.

Many times there is a requirement to view Snapchat stories without them knowing. For example, if you want to monitor your child’s activity or stories that he/she uploads on Snapchat you can use any of the above methods.

I personally think the Airplane Mode method is the best method which is safe too.

This completes the article on how one can view someone’s Snapchat story anonymously. Please leave your comments if you find these methods useful or figure out another way of performing this activity.
