If you’ve been wondering what happens when you unblock someone on Instagram, you’re not alone. This common question plagues users around the world. In this article, we’ll break down exactly what happens after you unblock a person. Unblocked users can now comment, like, and react to public posts on your profile, and they can also view your private messages. If you want to make sure that the person you blocked is completely gone from your Instagram account, read on.
Unblocked users can now comment, like, and react to your public posts
Previously, Instagram blocked certain accounts for spam activities. These actions may look like spam and the system blocks these accounts for a certain period of time. When this happens, an error message will appear with the word “Action Blocked.” Unlike previous blocks, this one will be temporary and will not lead to permanent ban. Instead, blocked users will be unable to comment, like, or react to your public posts.
When someone blocks you on Instagram, it will ask you whether you want to allow them to join the group again. After blocking a user, their posts will not appear in the group, and they won’t be able to send you any messages. However, once a user has been unblocked, they will have access to your profile and any other information you have set. Once they have unblocked you, they will be able to comment, like, and react to your public posts. Unblocking a user is possible on desktop as well as mobile.
Unblocked users can still see your profile
If you’ve accidentally blocked someone on Instagram, you may wonder how to unblock them. The good news is that you can do this yourself. In the app, simply navigate to the hamburger menu and select Settings. From there, choose the Privacy tab, where you’ll find two sections – Interactions and Connections. Select the person you’d like to unblock. You’ll notice that the person will no longer see your posts and will no longer receive notifications.
Once you’ve completed these steps, you can go back to Instagram and find the person you’d like to unblock. After that, you can select that person’s name from the list and tap the Unblock button. A prompt will appear asking you to confirm the action. If you’d rather simply unblock yourself, you can also simply hit the big blue Unblock button at the top of your profile.
Unblocked users can still access your private messages
If you’ve been blocked by a user on Instagram, you can still access their private messages if they’ve made an account and logged in. If you’re suspicious of someone’s blocked status, you can look at their profile and see if there are any posts by them. You can also see how many followers and DMs they have if they are not yet blocked. The problem is that you can’t contact blocked users but you can report posts for being inappropriate, including hate speech, bullying, and violence.
Once you’ve blocked a user, their messages will remain in your inbox until you delete them. While they won’t be able to view your posts, comments, or DMs, you can still see the messages sent to you by blocked users. You can even continue communicating with them through your phone number if you want to. You can also block people you don’t want to interact with on Instagram, such as your best friend.
Unblocking someone on Instagram is like putting someone in time out
You can’t see another user’s profile, posts, or stories if they have blocked you. It is similar to putting someone on timeout in school. If you don’t want to be bothered by that person anymore, you can unblock them. They won’t know you blocked them, and you won’t get any notifications from them. You can, however, block them back at any time.
By blocking a user on Instagram, you are effectively putting them on timeout. You may be able to unblock them from your followers, but this won’t restore any likes, comments, or undeliverable messages that they took. If you’ve blocked someone on Instagram for violating privacy policies, you’ll still see their public posts, but they won’t be able to mention you or tag you in posts.
How to unblock someone on Instagram if you know their username
If you know someone’s username, you can unblock their profile. You will need to enter their username and password in the fields provided. If you do not know their username, you can search for it on the main search bar of Instagram. After you find the username of the person you want to unblock, click on it. Your conversation will then start. Make sure to reply as quickly as possible.
You can also make the user’s profile private. The option is located in the left bottom corner, after the profile picture. Once you’ve done that, go to their profile and click on ‘Privacy’ to see whether they’ve blocked you. If you’re blocked by an Instagram user, you can still view their content – just don’t expect others to see it.
