Snapchat, an instant messaging application, has many great features that keep users coming back. One such feature is the ability to pin chats. When you pin a chat or a conversation, you can get back to them quickly when needed. These pinned chats appear on top of your conversation list. One can pin a maximum of 3 chats at a time. It is important to note that the ability to pin and unpin conversations is currently only available for iOS users. No one is sure when the ability to pin and unpin someone on Snapchat will be made available for android users.

Why unpin someone on Snapchat
Many people have for some reason decided to unpin a chat they initially pinned on Snapchat. Changes happen all the time. While some have no reason for wanting to unpin chats, others could be doing so for many reasons. One may decide to unpin chats with an ex that they have fallen out of love with. While another may decide to unpin conversations with a friend they no longer communicate often with. It could also be that you needed to pin someone else but have reached the limit of 3 people already. Whatever the reason may be, you will find out how to unpin someone on Snapchat as you read further.

How to Unpin Someone on Snapchat
It is easy to pin a chat on Snapchat. It doesn’t matter if you are new to Snapchat or an advanced user. The steps below are easy for everyone to follow.
1. Launch the Snapchat app
Fire on and launch the Snapchat application. This is super easy to do. Most people have their Snapchat icons located on their home screen. Tap on it and the application will open.
2. Locate the Chat icon
After launching the app, check on the main camera screen and look for the chat icon. Select it and continue.
3. Press on the pinned conversation
The chat home shows you all the pinned chats/conversations. Pinned chats usually have the pin icon beside them. Press on a pinned chat for a long time and select “setting”.
4. Select unpin conversation
After “setting” is selected, another set of options will appear. Select “Unpin Conversation” amongst the options and there you have it. The unpinned conversation will no longer appear at the top of all other conversations.
Can someone tell if you unpin them on Snapchat?
You might have wondered if others will know when you unpin them. Understandably, we don’t want to offend those that we have been in conversations with. The good news is that nobody will be informed when you unpin them on Snapchat. So, don’t worry but feel free to pin and unpin conversations whenever you like.
What is the maximum number of times to unpin a conversation on Snapchat?
There is no maximum number of times you can pin and unpin a conversation. You can do this as many times as you wish without running into any form of problem.
How to unpin someone on Snapchat that blocked you
Unfortunately, you cannot unpin a conversation with someone who already blocked you on Snapchat. However, there is a way around this. You can contact the Snapchat support team to help you unpin the conversation.
How to unpin someone on Snapchat that deleted their account
Just as with unpinning someone that blocked you, you cannot unpin someone that deleted their account. What happens is that the option to unpin the Snapchat conversation disappears once someone deletes their account. Contacting Snapchat support is a sure way of getting the conversation unpinned even though it may take a while.
