How Do You Know If Someone Blocks You On Instagram?
How To Tell If Someone Blocked You On Instagram 2017
Have you been scrolling through your Instagram feed lately and suddenly realize that a person you normally see all the time has mysteriously disappeared? Did they just stop posting? We would venture to guess they didn't just quit Instagram cold turkey. So... did they block you? How can you tell if someone blocked you on Instagram?
How To Tell If Someone Blocked You On Instagram If Their Profile Is Public
If your potential blocker's profile is public, it will be a lot easier to figure out if they blocked you.
First, search their name in your discover search bar and find their profile. If their profile is public and you are not blocked, you should be able to see their posts. However you are blocked, you will see their profile picture and the blue follow button, but where their pictures should be, it will read "no posts yet".
You can further confirm that they have blocked you by trying to follow them — and nothing will happen.
How To Tell If Someone Blocked You On Instagram If Their Profile Is Private
If your potential blocker's profile is private, you will have to take somewhat of a roundabout route to find out if they blocked you on Instagram.
If you are blocked by a private user, they won't be searchable in the discover search bar. So, to get to the bottom of the issue, find a mutual friend. Go to that mutual friend's profile and find a photograph where the potential blocker either liked or commented. You'll be able to access their profile by clicking their name. Once you have found their profile, follow the same steps as above!
