What Does the Lock Mean on Snapchat

When you see a lock sign next to a Snapchat story, it means that a particular story is personal and only certain users can view their story. If your boss, family member, or ex is on your Snapchat friends list and you don’t want them to see your story, you can make it personal.

Similar to Instagram’s Close Friend feature, this Snapchat feature allows users to determine who can and cannot see their story. Private Stories expire after 24 hours and once it expires, no one can see it anymore; Not even a user on a personal story. When you share a private story with someone, they’ll see a blue/purple lock symbol on your story, and the color will change from blue/purple to grey when they see it.
