How do I block or unblock someone?

When you block someone, they can't see your profile or posts. You can block someone using the Instagram app on your phone or tablet, but not on the web. To block or unblock someone:

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

To unblock someone, follow the steps 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.
