How to tell if someone viewed your Snapchat story more than once

Snapchat stories are for everyone to see. Well, everyone on your Friends list. We all know that Snapchat lets you check how many people have viewed your story. You can even see the names of the people that have viewed it. But is there a way to know who viewed your story more than once? Read on to find out!

What are Snapchat stories

Similar to Instagram’s story feature, Snapchat users can post images and videos to a disappearing timeline. Snapchat stories only last for 24 hours, after which they automatically disappear. Depending on your privacy settings, Snapchat stories can be viewed by anyone in your Friends list, or a specific few (private stories).

You can keep a tab on how many people view your stories, as well as who has viewed it. With regard to video stories, if a person only views part of the story before closing it, they will not show up on the viewer’s list.

How to check who viewed your story

You can check the number of views that your story has, as well as who those people are that have viewed your story. To check out the views on your story, launch the Snapchat app, and tap on your story window in the top left corner.

Now tap your story to open it. Tap on the eye symbol at the bottom of your story. The number beside the eye symbolizes the number of people that have viewed your story.

Tapping the eye symbol will bring up a list of people who have viewed your story.

How to tell if someone viewed your Snapchat story more than once

Snapchat does not have a definitive way to let you know that your story has been viewed multiple times. However, there is a trick you can use to find out if your story was viewed again, and by whom. It should be noted that this method does not let you know how many times your story was viewed by the same person.

To find out if someone has viewed your story again, you need to compare your current viewer’s list to a previous one. Snapchat generates the viewer’s list based on who viewed your story last. And, it keeps populating this list in the same manner.

So in order to find out if a person has viewed your story again, you must keep checking your viewer’s list. If the person’s name was below before, but suddenly comes to the top of the list, you can be certain that they just viewed your story again!

For example, if your story was viewed by A, then B, then C, your list will show C,B,A from top to bottom (since C viewed your story last). Now if B views your story again, your list will change to B,C,A. This way you know that B has viewed your story more than once.

Tips for finding out who viewed your Snapchat story more than once

  • Take screenshots of your viewer’s list at periodic intervals. This way you can check where on the list a person was.
  • Try using private stories. The less the number of people that can view your story, the easier it will be to keep track of who is viewing it multiple times.
  • Do not keep your viewers list open. The list does not populate while open. You need to keep closing it and opening it again.
  • If a person is at the top of your viewer’s list and you know want to know if they replay your snap, you can ask a friend to quickly view your snap, and then wait to see if this person’s name moves to the top again.

Why is my viewer’s list not changing

If you notice that your list is not changing, close the Snapchat app and reopen it. If your internet is not fast enough, the list may need to be refreshed to repopulate. Also, your list will not change if you have it open. You will need to keep reopening the list to view any changes.

Will I know if someone has taken a screenshot of my story

Unlike a snap, when a person takes a screenshot of your story you will not receive a notification. However, if you check your viewer’s list, you will see a screenshot icon next to the person’s name who took a screenshot. Again, this does not indicate how many times a single person has taken a screenshot, only the total number of people that have taken screenshots.

Well, now you know the trick to finding out if a person has viewed your story on Snapchat more than once. If you have any queries feel free to reach out to us in the comments below.
