One of the biggest fears people have when using Instagram is getting blocked by someone. If feels embarrassing, and often feels personal too. Fortunately though, Instagram is quite transparent when it comes to this, so it’s easy to tell when someone has blocked you.
How to See if an Individual Person Has Blocked You
Finding out if a certain person has blocked you is easy. All you need to do is go to their profile. If you are blocked, it will display a message like this:
As you can see, Instagram no longer tells you that you’re blocked, but simply displays a message that the profile in unavailable.
Although you can no longer see the user’s profile content, you can still see their comments. So, another test you can do is go to a mutual friend’s profile and look through their posts. If the culprit’s username shows up in the comments, click on it. If you’re not able to see the user’s content, then they have blocked you.
The final method you can use to find out if an individual has blocked you is to search their username in the search box. If it shows up, then they haven’t blocked you – Congrats! If it doesn’t appear, then it’s bad news – You’re blocked! However, the exception to this if they have deactivated / deleted their account. Then, they won’t show up even if they didn’t block you. This is why it’s best to try the first two methods before trying this one.
How to See All the People Who Have Blocked You
The methods listed above are not useful if you don’t know who the person (or people) are that have blocked you. If you want to see a list of every person that has blocked you, this method is much better.
The only way to see a list of everyone who has blocked you on Instagram is to use an app. This is because Instagram does not provide an in-built feature to do it. The most popular app for this purpose is called Blockers Spy. Here’s how to use it:
1. Download Blockers Spy by searching for it in the App Store. If you’re using Android, you’ll need to download this app instead.
2. Open the app and login using your Instagram username and password
3. You will now be shown a list of all the people who are currently blocking you on Instagram.
The app also has a few other features, such as letting you view all the people who have visited your profile. You can also see all of the people who have unfollowed you in the last 30 days. Everything is presented in a list on a single page. This makes it really easy to get a clear view of who has interacted with your Instagram account.
So there you have it! These are the two ways to find out who has unblocked you on Instagram. And don’t worry, if you’ve been blocked, it happens to the best of us. The best thing to do is shake it off and move on. Still though, it’s fun to find out if anyone has blocked you, so give it a try.
