There are a few ways to verify whether someone has blocked you on Instagram if you suspect it. Users will have to find alternatives like manually looking for the person on the IG app or website, browsing prior posts, and more because the photo and video sharing platform doesn’t provide a clear way to check the name of the profiles that have blocked you.
How to figure out whether you’ve been blocked on Instagram
To find out whether you are blocked on Instagram, search. This is how:
Step 1: Open Instagram App.
Step 2: Select “Search” from the bottom tab by tapping it.
Step 3: Search for person. who you are targeting
Step 4: You have been blocked if the profile doesn’t show up. If it does, nothing to worry about.
In certain situations, even though the profile appears and you choose it, a message that reads “User not found” may appear on the next screen. Again, this suggests that you might have been added to the block list.
Review the comments and likes on your postings:
Go through the likes and comments on your posts to find the profile if you are unable to locate it through search and want to confirm whether you have been blocked. How? Read on.
Step 1: Open the Instagram app on your phone.
Step 2: Click the bottom tab to access the Profile area.
Step 3: Choose any post from the grid.
Step 4: Currently, search for the profile by looking through likes and comments on each post.
Step 5: Choose the account if they have in fact liked or commented.
Step 6: If a ‘User not found’ message displays on the next screen, you’ve probably been blocked.
Examining conversations is another technique to find out whether someone has blocked you on Instagram.
Step 1: Open Instagram.
Step 2: Swipe to the right to access the DMs area.
Step 3: Search for any chats you may have had with anyone who may have blocked you.
Step 4: You might have been blocked if the conversation doesn’t load.
The profile image of the other individual might not appear using this technique.
Use Different Account:
You can go ahead and look up the individual using a secondary or a friend’s account if all other options are exhausted or show that you have been blocked by that one account.
If the person’s account, whose blocking of you you are unsure of, appears in the search results using a different account, this should make it clear that they have blocked you on Instagram.
