How do I block or unblock someone?

You can block someone using the Instagram app on your phone or tablet, but not on the web.

When you block someone, they can't see your profile or posts. People aren't notified when you block them. To block or unblock someone:

  1. Tap their username to open their profile
  2. Tap (iPhone/iPad), (Android) or (Windows)
  3. Tap Block User

To unblock someone, follow steps 1-2 above and then tap Unblock User.

If you can't find the person you want to block or unblock, they may have deleted their account or their profile may be unavailable to you.
