what does recently joined on snapchat mean

Do you want to know what Recently Joined means in the Quick Add section on Snapchat? Well, we’ve got you covered.

You may have been looking at the Quick Add section on the Add Friends page on Snapchat and noticed that some users are labeled with “Recently Joined”.

In this article, you will find out what Recently Joined means on Snapchat and how long it will remain on the user’s profile.

Let’s get right into this!

What does Recently Joined on Snapchat mean

The Recently Joined label on Snapchat means that the user has recently created their account. Snapchat is telling you that you may not have seen their account before and so you may want to add it. There is no set time for how long the label will stay. It could be over a month, though.

Now, we will expand upon this.

The main reason why Snapchat adds the Recently Joined label to users is to make them stand out.

This is because there may be many users on your Quick Add list that you have already seen before.

But, by adding Recently Joined, it’s highlighting the fact that you may not have seen them before on the list.

Also, the message means that the new Snapchat user has been adding some of your friends on Snapchat, so it may mean you have some mutual friends as well.

However, the user may not have any mutual friends and still appear on your Quick Add list.

This may be because you have their mobile number in your contacts, or Snapchat thinks you know them some how.

How long does it say Recently Joined on Snapchat?

At the moment, Snapchat hasn’t released an amount of time that the Recently Joined message will remain on someone’s profile in the Quick Add section.

But, it’s likely that it may stay on there for up to a month.

How to remove Recently Joined on Snapchat

You may want the Recently Joined message removed from your Snapchat profile in the Quick Add section.

There isn’t a direct way to get the message removed, so the best way to try to remove it is to contact Snapchat support.

Here are the steps to contact Snapchat.

1. Go to Snapchat’s Support page

Firstly, you need to go to Snapchat’s Support page.

The web address is https://support.snapchat.com/

2. Tap on Contact Us

Secondly, you need to tap or click on the Contact Us button.

Then, you will need to choose a reason for “How can we help?”.

We chose “I’ve found a big in the app”.

But, you can choose anything, it doesn’t matter.

You will then get an answer, but you need to scroll past the answer to the bottom of the page.

3. Look for “Need help with something else”

Near the bottom of the page will be a short piece of text saying “Need help with something else?”.

You need to click on “Yes”.

Now, another form will appear. You need to fill it in.

For “What’s not working?” we chose “Profiles”.

Next for “What are you having trouble with?” we chose “My Profile”.

Then, we got a form that we can form with a text box that we can fill in and actually describe the issue we are having.

4. Complete the form precisely

Make sure that you complete the form as precisely as possible and explain that you would like the “Recently Joined” message removed, or you would like to know how long it will last.

Once you have entered all of the information, tap or click on “Send” in the yellow box to submit your report to Snapchat.

Hopefully, they will provide you with a useful response.

To be honest, it’s quite unlikely that they will be able to completely remove it because it’s part of how Snapchat works. But, they may be able to give a timescale that the message will remain on your profile for.

Also, you shouldn’t worry about it too much about highlighting your profile.

Snapchat users will often see users labeled with “Recently Joined”, so you won’t stand out that much.
