If you have ever tried to view a story that has been locked by someone you are in a relationship with, you may have wondered what this means. There are a few things you need to know.
Viewing a private story
Snapchat users can create private stories, or share them with certain people. They can also block individual users, and they can add or remove viewers. To create a private story, you will need to sign in to your account. You can do this with your email or password. Once you have signed in, click the “+ Create New Story” button on your profile page. Then you’ll be prompted to name the private story and choose recipients. After you select a friend, you can send the story.
To view someone else’s private story, you will need to open the app and locate the story. Look for the purple lock icon, which indicates that the story is private. This means that only the person who created the story and the people who have added to the story can see it. If you can’t find the story, try logging in with a different profile. Another option is to search for the user by name in your contact list.
You can use the search bar to find someone who is in the private story. If you want to rename the private story, you can do so by clicking the 3-dots menu icon at the top right of the story’s title. Alternatively, you can edit the story’s settings by scrolling down to the bottom of the screen.
When you are finished with your private story, you can delete it. Deleting it means that all of the viewers will be deleted from the story as well. Before you delete it, though, you may need to confirm that you actually want to do this.
Private stories are like normal stories on Snapchat. They only stay up for 24 hours. However, they are not visible to anyone who is not in the story. In addition to deleting a story, you can delete the pictures and videos that you have added to it. For this, you will need to follow the steps listed below.
To rename a story, you will need to type in a new name for the story. Once you have done this, you will need to save the change. Remember, however, that you can only rename a private story once. Afterwards, you can view the changes you have made to the story.
Leaving a private story is also easy. All you need to do is log in to your Snapchat account and long press the Private Story you would like to leave. Afterwards, you will be asked to confirm that you want to leave the story. After you confirm, you’ll be able to leave the story by tapping the “Leave Story” button.
If you’re removing yourself from a story, you will notice that your name will be removed from the viewer list. While this is annoying, it is possible to re-add yourself to the story. Just be sure to check the box next to your name and uncheck the circle to the left of your name.
Creating a private story
Private stories are one of the many features on the popular social networking app Snapchat. These stories allow users to share content with a select group of friends. This can include photos and videos. There are two ways to create private stories on the app. You can choose to share your story with just your friends or with everyone on your contact list.
To add a new private story, go to your profile page on the Snapchat app. Once there, click the “Edit Viewers” option. From there, you’ll see a list of your contacts. Then, scroll down the list to find someone you’d like to add to a private story. If you don’t find someone you want, you can add them through a “check mark” or the “Create Story” option.
Next, you’ll need to record a video or take a photo. If you’re recording a video, you’ll need to select the “Snap” tab. You can find the tab by swiping left or right on the screen. After you record a video or take a photo, you can then share it with your friends. A yellow Send To icon will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen. Whenever you’re ready to send your snap, tap the Send To button.
Next, you’ll need to select the friends who you want to share your story with. When you’re ready to publish the story, you can hit the Send button. During the sending process, you can also change the settings for the story. You can add up to 1,000 pictures or videos to the story at once. Also, you can rename the story.
If you have any doubts about the privacy of a story you’re planning to create on Snapchat, you can always block it from other people. Doing so will keep anyone who tries to add you to the private list from doing so. Another way to stop others from adding you to a private story is to simply delete the story. However, if you are deleting a story, you’ll have to re-create it.
Creating a private story on Snapchat is easy to do. All you need is to follow the prompts. Besides, it’s not as complicated as you might think. Just be sure to select the right settings and you’ll be good to go. Keep in mind that you can only have up to 10 private stories on your account at any time.
If you’re not satisfied with the way a story looks, you can rename it. For example, you can rename it from ‘Snap’ to ‘Friends Only’ or vice versa. You can also edit its name and add or remove users from the list. In addition, you can add new features to your story and rename its contents.
Depending on the version of the app, you’ll need to use the “Snap” tab to add photos and videos. If you need to rename the story, you can do so by clicking the three vertical dots at the top of the display.
Muting someone’s story
If you are looking for a way to limit the amount of noise in your Snapchat feed, you may want to consider muting someone’s story. This is an easy way to block them from appearing in your story feed and will also prevent any direct messages from showing up in your inbox. You can mute their stories for a period of time or permanently.
Aside from muting someone’s stories, you can also mute their snaps. You can do this by long-pressing on their name. The menu item that pops up will allow you to toggle the mute option. Afterward, you will only be able to see their Snaps, not their Profiles. Alternatively, you can remove them from your friend list.
While you can mute the snaps of anyone, you can mute the stories of friends or groups. You can do this by long-pressing the name of the person or group. Once you have done this, you will be able to see a menu with the options of muting their stories, narrative settings and groups.
You can also try sending a snap to your muted friend and see if the phone vibrates. Similarly, you can send an urgent message to someone you suspect is muted. Depending on their profile settings, this may reveal their mute status. However, this won’t always be the case.
Another way to mute someone’s stories on Snapchat is to block their profile from the “up next” section. After a few seconds, you will notice that the profile is no longer on the screen. You can also hide your profile from the story feed if you prefer.
Whenever you are muted, you will never get notifications for new stories or messages from the app. However, you will still be able to view other people’s stories and chat with them. As a result, you won’t have to worry about missing any interesting stories or being blocked by other users.
If you are not sure how to mute a story on Snapchat, you can read our guide to the process. In addition to muting and unmuting stories, you can also mute their profiles and send them a direct message. Also, you can mute the stories of any group, including your own. These steps will ensure that you do not miss any stories and can keep your account private.
Remember, you can also unmute your muted stories and profiles. To do this, you just need to follow the same steps as above. One caveat: if you mute someone’s profile, you will still be able to send them a direct message. However, they will not be able to respond to your message. So it is better to mute them only if you want to have complete privacy.
You can also try muting your stories to see if it helps. When you do, you won’t be able to find them in your story feed and you won’t receive alerts when you have new stories.
