View Snapchat Profile

Snapchat profiles are very basic, containing little more than a person's username and profile picture. You can only view the profiles of friends, people who've added you, or people who sent you a chat. You have to use the Snapchat app to see others' profiles. Snapchat has also removed the ability to see your contacts' best friends. You can only see your own best friends at this time. This article teaches you how to see a user's brief profile on Snapchat.
