What Does “Mention” or “Tag” Mean on Snapchat?

The mention feature on Snapchat works the same way it works on Instagram and Facebook. When you mention someone in your Snapchat story, the viewers will know that you are drawing attention to them.

People usually tag someone when the person is related to their post. The mention feature can also help you give a shout-out to a particular user.

You can follow the below steps to mention a user on Snapchat.

How To Mention Someone on Snapchat

The following tutorial will work on both iOS and Android devices.

Step1: Launch the Snapchat app and capture or record a snap.

Step2: Tap the “T” icon in the top-right corner of the snap. Then, enter the username of the person with the character “@” in front of it. You have successfully tagged the person on Snapchat.

Alternatively, press the sticker icon on the Snap, then choose the Mention sticker. The mention sticker will have a “@” icon.

Afterward, type the name of the person you want to mention on Snapchat. You will see many suggestions while writing the name of the user. Select the result that shows the right user.

Step3: Tap the Send To option and choose the users with whom you want to share your snap.

It is worth noting that you can only tag someone on Snapchat if they appear in your friends list, or if they follow you.

Can You Mention Someone Who Isn’t on Your Friend List?

No, you can only tag people who are on your Friends list. Snapchat does not let you mention people who are not on your friends list or do not follow you. But “Added by Mention” feature can help you add users as friends.

Typing the username will reveal an Add Friend option if they are not your friends. You can tap this button to make them friends.

Can You Remove a Tag or Mention on Snapchat?

As of now, you cannot remove a mention on Snapchat without deleting your snap or story. Note that you cannot remove a mention if someone else mentions you on Snapchat. The only way you can get rid of your mention in someone’s snaps/stories is to report those snaps.
