No, unpinning someone does not remove them as your friend on Snapchat. You remain friends with them and can interact with them as usual. It will only remove their chat from the top position and display it like other normal chats.

Remember, unpinning someone on Snapchat doesn’t mean removing them as your friend. It just helps you set your priorities better.
