Were you blocked on Facebook recently?

It is no fun to find out you were blocked on Facebook. It can be incredibly awkward as well, especially if you have to interact with that person face-to-face regularly (Anyone can relate to?).

Unfortunately, Facebook does not offer any official tool or features to help you find out why you can no longer see someone’s profile.

However, there are some hints that can help you discover whether you have been blocked or the profile you are looking for, has simply been disabled. Let’s explore those hints to help you find out who blocked you on Facebook now.

1. Dig into old conversations

If you are curious enough to find out if someone blocked you on Facebook, it is likely that you were somehow connected to that person, and you probably had a conversation with him or her in the past on Facebook chat.

So jump to your Facebook inbox and search for that person’s conversation. If you see the Facebook’s default picture next to the person’s name and their name at the top is no longer clickable, you know that person has disabled his profile.

who blocked you on Facebook
In case you can still see the person’s display picture and the link is not clickable, this means that the person has likely blocked you.

2. Search through Friend list

Another method to find out if you have been blocked is by searching for that person in your Friend list (assuming that you were friends before on Facebook). In the search box, type the person’s name.

In case the result returns with the default profile picture, click on it to go to his or her profile page. If the user has disabled his or her profile, you will get a pop up with the message: This account has been deactivated. However, if you cannot find that person in the search result, this confirms that you have been blocked.

Facebook user disabled profile or blocked me

3. Ask Mutual Friends

Chances are that you remember your mutual friends with that person. Go ahead and inquire about the person whom you suspect has blocked you. Ask them if they are able to see him or her in their friend list recently, or if they can view his or her profile. If they can, this means you have been blocked on Facebook.

4. Find profile Link

Sometimes you might feel awkward to inquire about your missing friend to mutual friends. If this is your case, try to access his profile link and see if you are able to see his profile, I recommend you to try this on a brand-new Facebook account. If you cannot see his profile, it is likely that you will get the message as in the screenshot below:
Facebook profile blocked or disabled
The above message means that either you were blocked or the user’s profile has been deactivated. The only way to confirm it is to try to access the profile on a new Facebook account. If you can access it, this means you were eventually blocked.

If after trying the mentioned methods above and found out that you were indeed blocked by a friend, you should not worry or feel irritated at all about it. If someone decides to block you, you should not allow this to interfere with your personal life. Just move on with your normal activities. After all, you don’t wake up every morning to please everyone on the surface of this earth. 🙂

What does it mean if the person does not show up in a search when completely logged out of Facebook or on my main account, but does show up on an alternate account? When on an alternate account, this person shows up on a person's page with whom I am not friends with but knows the person in question, When on my main account, the person does not show up, even though the person's page (with whom I am not friends with) is set to public.

You know sometimes being in a relationship is enough, especially if you're just dating. I'd ask with a different approach. For instance: did you block me to keep me from seeing anything or anyone specific or did you just want your own place of friends and interaction. I at first was put off by my boyfriend being hesitant to befriend me on FB, but then I realized we shared enough whereas what wasn't enough in my eyes to fulfill my relationship. Did I really need to see who he was interacting with and if so, was it out of lack of trust for him. Many times I learned from viewing others in longer term relationships for example, married that neither are either friends with each other, and they've still remained married. Every so once in a while her face in a family pic will show up on his page and vice versa but they still remain strangers to each other on Facebook. I'd ask her why she felt the need to be secretive is what I'd ask her. But hey this is coming from Miss Completely Suspecting Everything. Good luck !

Question. Would appreciate your insight Hayder. Recently broke up with my boyfriend. I was deactivated on FB and reactivated my profile. My ex was in my friends list as usual. Everything was normal until a few days later I uploaded a new profile pic and within a few hours I noticed he disappeared? I checked my friends list , my count remained the same, I searched him in my friends list and saw a default pic with his name. When I clicked on it it said ' This user has deactivated their profile'. I than went to our talk/ conversation history.. Again a default pic, with our past conversations. NOW this is why I'm confused, in the past he has deactivated many times, so this appeared to be the same, HOWEVER when I searched his name in the search bar, his profile pic appeared? I clicked on it and it said something to effect, sorry this page is broken, something like that, pic hand, band aid or something like that? In the past when he deactivated I had never seen his profile in the search ever. Now is he really deactivated or am I blocked? I would really appreciate a reply as it would help tremendously for clossure ....Thank you.

I noticed a few years ago that one friend disappeared from fb. On a whim I did a search and found pictures the person had commented on. However, I couldn't see their comments only those of other people. I could just tell that this persons comments were missing. I found a chat we had & when I try to reply it says there's been a problem. I see their profile pic. I went to my privacy settings & typed the name in as if I was trying to block it & the profile showed up. It's no big deal but makes me feel weird. I never even interacted with this person.

Natalia, If you sent a voice message before you are blocked, then definitely the recipient will receive it. However, if it was sent AFTER being blocked, your voice message will never reach the other end. I hope I have answered your question. :)

I have a question. The message I get is 'You can not reply to this conversation'. Their name appears black and from pc I can't redirect to their profile. The last messages received also appear in black on my pc. ( We were never friends, but used to chat regularly.) On my phone I still see the pic (but that's often cause it takes a while to update to the new ones) and the message is 'This person can not receive messages from you right now'. When I try to view the profile from phone I get the 'Please Try Again. Something went wrong and we couldn't load the page.' message.

Im pretty sure my ex blocked me but I was not added as a friend as hes not in facebook very often. So after 6 weeks of no contact the odd time Id check his facebook and I also messaged him a few messages but did not think they went through as he has no friend request to anyone for his facebook profile! I saw on his two best friends pages his profile was added as a friend. Two days later after he blocked me, I checked his 2 friends accounts and he is gone! Does this mean he deleted his profile? Cause I don't talk to his two friends they don't know me, I only met one of them....and I have no other computer to access to check this out under someone else's facebook account!

Same for me but a guy I dated blocked me after 6 weeks of zero contact. The strange thing is we were not added as friends on facebook as he has that section blocked off to all user however at times I would go into his facebook to see what hes up to., He is not someone to add tons of photos he only adds a photo every 3 months. I was quite shocked. Two days later I went into his 2 friends facebook and he used to be added as a friend with his profilfe photo but now he is not on either of them, so does this mean his profile is shutdown? Because I checked his best friend and he was on there before this happened. (I had messaged him a few times but did not think it went through sounds like it did!)...very odd! We got along well and were talking as friends then boom he was gone!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

Man I was seeing stopped contact for 6 weeks. We had no contact. He has a facebook but I was not added as a friend as he has no friend request attached (hes blocked it to everyone). So I sent him 4-5 messages over the 6 weeks and suddenly 2 days ago he has blocked me on facebook. I know his sister and had asked her to meet for a coffee sometime to her facebook, that's all I can think of, why should that upset him. The weird thing is is we got along GREAT we never fought at all so this shocked me. He said he wanted to stay friends after we dated...I figure he got my message which told him I miss him etc OR has a woman not sure. He is someone on facebook rarely he only has about 5 photos on it...very odd!

I have a question about profile pictures....I know I have been blocked by someone....however my issue is after someone has blocked you, you should not be able to see any of their profile picture updates surely? I am asking this question so I know for sure if perhaps this person is unblocking me and blocking me again without me knowing? which is possible....however I would like to know for sure if the reason I keep seeing updates with their profile picture on my inbox/chat window from our old conversations keeps updating is just facebooks new way keeping people guessing or if infact this person must have unblocked me briefly for this to have happened?? I am definitely blocked....the name appears in black I cant click on the picture or see a profile.....but on the PC and on messenger their profile picture keeps updating?? Can anyone please shed any light on this for me?

John, The speaker icon in Facebook messenger is used to send voice message to your friends. If there's a slash on it, it most probably means that it is disabled.

Hello Kimi, I have just tried to reproduce the scenario on my side with two different Facebook accounts, it still works like a charm! Make sure when you click on the Report Button, you select the third option i.e (Report conversation participant(s) for harassing or threatening me.) and click OK. You should see it AFTER doing these steps.

I just found another way to see if you have been blocked or if an acct was deactivated...Click on "about' on you facebook page...scroll down to the little box that says search for your friends...enter name...This is the result I got since I was curious if I had been blocked by someone ---> This account has been deactivated. Hoping this helps some..It did me ! :)

Thanks! I had thought the same thing as well. However, it does not stay that way. I dont know how long it lasts, its almost like a glitch. The first time it happened, I was shocked, checked a couple days later and could not see her. Then it happened again but same thing couple days, gone.

Dre, If you can see her profile and send her a friend request even though you have blocked her, it is likely that she created an identical profile as the one you have blocked.

I had blocked an ex a while back and within the past month I have been able to see her profile on facebook, even friend request if I want. Ive searched and checked mutual friends a couple times and its as if she is blocked, other times can see her. Yes she is still on my block list, I did check.

Hello Jeepers, If you or your famiily members are unable to see the profile in Facebook, it clearly means he/she blocked you all. The reason this profile does not appear in Google but can be searched by your friend on Facebook is because that user has tweaked his/her profile settings so that it does not appear in Google. This can be done from Settings > Privacy. See under the label "Do you want other search engines to link to your Timeline?"
Jeepers's photo


Thursday, October 9th, 2014

OK...I got one for you..... someone NOT a friend on my FB (an extended family member who doesn't like step-mom) blocked me, and it's so bad that Google doesn't find them, all 12 other family members who had her listed in their friends - I can't see her in there either! It's as though she disappeared completely. But, my friend can find her easily just by typing in her name. So, is that what a "block" does? Affects Google as well as Facebook? or my biggest concern, did someone hack my computer. anyone?

Anyone know if this is a bug or whats up? On PC facebook they're still on my friends list but their picture is the blank default image and name is black. Their messages are still in my inbox and theyre on my friendslist. If I search they dont show up, they arent on mutual friends profiles, and cant find them while on someone elses account either. On mobile FB their picture is there and the last time they were online, but I cant send messages. If I click them on friends list it says theyre deactivated... Im assuming its just deactivation?

Daniel, I have encountered this issue before. There's 2 possibilities: 1. When someone leave a comment and then disable his account. There's a discrepancy between the total comments shown at the top and the actual comments. 2. The user has probably blocked you that's why you won't see his/her comments. To confirm that you have not been blocked, access the comments through another profile. If you can see it, then it means that user has blocked you. If you still cannot see it, that means the user has disabled his profile. Unfortunately, there's no way know who left the comment. Hopefully, this helps!

thanks for clarifying the meaning of that 'Sorry, this page isn't available' message. i thought it meant i was blocked from this user. Their photo still shows in the link when i search by their name. I am not and never have been friends with this person. She is the owner of a closed group on FB that i'm a member of, or i was a member until a couple of days ago. I have a lot of much loved friends on this group, people i have not friended but who i have just developed relationships within the group. It's a support group for a serious and rare health problem. I have gotten some ambiguous but not good vibes from the owner in the past, i didn't think it was a big deal, and i thought that it was just her issue and if she was misperceiving me, there wasn't much i could do about it. i've always been polite, respectful, and even friendly to her. The problem as best i can understand it is a difference of opinion or orientation toward some group topics, maybe a cultural difference. I did not imagine that i was giving her any reason to hate me. Two days ago, i think i was banned from the group. I do not know why. I did not get a message telling me that was somehow outside the terms and conditions or anything like that. What happened was, i went to the group page, using the Facebook search field, as i always have before, the link to the group came up when i typed the name, i clicked on it, but instead of being taken to the group page, i was just taken back to my newsfeed. Something happened right before this which made me suspicious that i may have been banned. The week before, i had major abdominal surgery, related to the topic of this support group. People on the group give and receive support. When i pulled through the surgery very well, i wrote a post from the hospital, got some replies. Then, i was discharged and went home. i was excited about that and i wrote a post to the group, telling them how i came home, what my doctor said, etc. I sent the post. Later, i looked for the post on the group but couldn't find it. Then i did find it, briefly, but then it was gone again. Part of the post was there and then it was truncated because it was a long post, and there was a link that said 'see more' that you could click on to see the rest of the post. When i clicked on it, i got a message that said something about the link being broken and maybe it was removed or maybe i didn't have permission to access it. After that, i couldn't find the post. I looked several times, i saw my other posts there, but this later one, the most recent one, was gone. i thought back about what i wrote. Did i write anything that would be considered unacceptable? i couldn't imagine anything. It didn't include opinion, and was just a newsy report about the details of being discharged and coming home and how i felt, how well i felt and how happy i was. But that post was gone. I've never had a post disappear on there before. I wasn't sure what happened because i had spilled water on my computer and fried it, and was using a different poorly working computer, so maybe that could explain the missing post, though i definitely did see it on the FB site twice after i had posted it, and suspected for some unknown reason, the site owner had deleted it. So then i posted a second post telling the group about how i was discharged and doing well and happy. I said that i had written another post but it had disappeared and i was sorry if this was a duplicate. i got some supportive replies. Then, that evening, suddenly i wasn't able to get onto the group site anymore. even before i first joined the group, i could get onto their page, but now, i can't get onto the page at all. I feel really bad about this, people on the group are all going through what i'm going through with this weird illness, and it's wonderful to find other people going through it. It's curable by surgery but the surgery is scary and can cause problems of its own. The people going through these things really need each other. Having just gotten through the surgery, i really needed my friends on the group. I do not know what i did that the owner considers to be a bad influence. Obviously, i don't think very highly of someone who would cut me off at a time when i really need support and my other friends on there don't know why i am not there anymore. They may think i had a good outcome with my surgery and have just turned my back on them. They may think something went wrong with my recovery. I am sure the person who has banned me believes they have good reasons for doing it, we are all well intended and believe we are doing the right thing. But i have no idea what has caused this person to kick me out of her group, no explanation, no reason, and also blocking me from her personal account so that i can try to find out what is going on. i would be open to hearing what her reasons are. But based on what i know at this point, i seem to be dealing with an oddly unreasonable person, who i realize is going through a hard time with the illness, but for me, it's painful because i had many friends on that group, again, not FB friends but group friends, and now i have none, and relationships that were growing and enjoyable are ended just like that, relationships focused on the most important thing in my life and in their lives right now. it's an unreplaceable social and emotional resource. I do plan to try friending those people so that i can at least tell them why i'm not on the group anymore, but first, i wanted to know why, and that is what brought me to this page. i have one friend on the group who i knew before joining it, it was me who told her about it, we know each other from another forum. We PM a lot. i PM'd her to ask if the site is down and she replied and said it's working fine. So i now have ruled out that explanation. And this blog about blocking people on FB has helped me to clarify that the owner has indeed blocked me in order, apparently, to avoid any communication with me about the issue of banning me from the group. It's just so weird that she would think i was so bad that it's justified to handle it this way. I am a friendly respectful person who is always willing to see other people's points of view, and i do not understand what was in my post that was deleted that caused her to delete it. If she just has some mental issues that are beyond my control, i can let that go and not worry about it, if only it didn't mean i am now being cut off from lots of people who i love to know and have conversations and share support with. It's a big loss for me.

Best to look at the profile and see when it was created. Also, see mutual friends or friend list in general if they only have a few friends it's most likely a fake. Good luck with your group. KCCO

Before when blocked the profile picture wasn't visible and it would say "Facebook user". Now that they have made changes I'm curious, if you block someone are they still unable to see your comments? Life if you comment on a mutual friends status? Or would they see your picture and non ckickable name?

Could he have blocked or restricted me from requested her as a friend? Or was it her Mom who has control over her daughter's fb account that blocked me? I am still friends with him but not his daughter or his ex. Thank You.....

Yes, it is possible to find out when someone blocked you. There's an online tool at that allows you to track your friend list. It sends you an email notification each time someone is missing from your friend list. However, you'll not be able to find out who blocked you in the past before signing up to that site.

When I got a friends profile into old conversations through message their name is black with no profile picI did the report thing and it said the profile is inactive. Does this mean I'm blocked or they deactivate the page?

Thanks for your reply, She still says she isn't on facebook or blocking me in any way and that she said facebook has something wrong to show her in chat window because she hasn't been logged in for a couple months. I think she is lying to me. it just doesn't make ant other since.

Hi Bill. Normally when you see the mobile icon in the chat bar, it means the user is logged in on Facebook via a mobile device. If you no longer see the cellphone icon, this means she has logged out or she's appearing offline. If you're no longer seeing her friends' birthday wishes on her wall, there's two reason why. Either her birth-date is hidden on her profile and it will obviously not be displayed in her friends' feed or she has restrict you from seeing posts on her wall. This can be tweaked via privacy settings. It's almost impossible (in my opinion) to not receive birthday wishes on Facebook except for the two reasons previously mentioned. Hopefully this help! :)

My girlfriend says she is not on facebook anymore since I found out she was chatting with old bfb. but yet I see her profile pic and name in the chat sidebar with picture of cell phone next to her. I asked and she said she is not signed in on any of her mobile devices. so the next day she still shows in chat sidebar but there is no cell phone next to her name its just blank. does that mean she is still on there and just figured out a way to block what I see? Last week was her birthday, she always gets tons of happy birthdays from friends and family on facebook. last week, none, not a single one. Something seems awful fishy.

If you can see her picture, then most probably you have been blocked. Try the second method explained in my article above, this is the most accurate method to verify if you have been blocked or not on Facebook.

I think I have been blocked by two ex's in the messenge's they both say "Facebook user" and one has their picture I can still see?? What does this mean?

If someone has blocked you, you will be the only one who will not be able to look at his profile. Your friends will be able to see his profile unless that person blocked your friend as well. Hopefully, I have answered your question.

I have had people appear unavailable before then they have come back. If i was unsure if i was blocked, would that person also appear unseeable if say one of my friend looked for that person meaning if im blocked does it also block my friends from that person

Keith, I have tried to replicate this scenario with my Facebook account. I have noticed that if you either block someone or disable your own account, you can't see who liked the post and the total likes does not decrease in both case! If you can't find her from a fake account, then it is most probably that she disabled her account. Hopefully, this helps!

Can someone tell me if my friend has deleted her account then can I see her likes? I went to one of her friends facebook page and her comments have disappeared but her like is still there. When you click on it to see her fb page the like thumb disappears. I've check all her friends fb pages and she is not under their friend list either. I made a fake account and still can't find her. Could she of blocked everyone or deleted her account. thanks

There's no way you can comment on a page on which you were banned unless you access it on another account.

Hi Steve, I haven't tested that on a Mobile device but it surely works when you're testing from a PC.

I have a porblem with another person blocking me and using my friends password. she has found it once and unblocked me but I am blocked again. she will not change her password for some reason, instead randomly activates and deactivates her page to keep the spies confused. this gets very complicated. She has come up with some interesting tricks of her own I can tell you about if you are interested. I could text directly to her phone to say I'm blocked but I don't want to because I suspect there is also spyware on the phone. this is serious spying going on in a large family and they are very good at it. I'm working on ways around it. If I make a scond ID there are very quick to block it if I use it to communicate. I was not able to make #1 work from my phone could not find the report action. I will try from computer tonight.

Hi Thanks for your article. I think I may have been blocked by a non friend as I may have sent a friend request but I cant be sure. Maybe im being paranoid but I checked their page today and cant find it anymore. I then searched for them through 2 other accounts and they cant be found here either. I looked through pages of this persons friends and she is not showing up under their list of "friends" either so am I blocked or is the page deactivated? Thanks

I just tried this on a multi-person conversation. The "Report" status showed up on everyone that still has an active profile, even on the person who I think disabled hers. So, the "Report" status does show up for people who have active accounts.

Hi Hayder, When I tried the trick number one, I get the popup window where I can either block email or unblock. What does this mean? When I click on the Facebook user it says, the account has been deactivated ?

#1 sounds good, but if I do that will it actually report the person or is there another step to confirm whether you actually want to report them or not? I would only want to see what the status is - not actually report them.

Does tip #1 still work? Or not from mobiles? I went to the conversation and couldn't find the report conversation button.

I tried number one and sadly saw that my "gf" blocked me. When I asked her about it she denied it and said she deleted her account. My brain is telling me that she is lying, but I want to believe her. Is there any possibility that she only deleted it but for some magical reason it says blocked? I doubt it, magic isn't real! :(

lol it worked!! Being the skeptic guy that I am, I asked someone to block me and it does appear. Do you think this is a FB glitch?? I think it is and they will fix it once more and more people find this out.

Hello Jay. This means his Facebook account has been really dis-activated and he hasn't blocked you.

If I still can see a friend on my llst but blank profile picture. When I chick his name it shows:This account has been deactivated. Only you can see Steven on your friends list. You have the option to unfriend XXXX is that means I 've been blocked by this person or he is truely deactivated his account? btw, I can't find him on our mutual .friend's page too.

I am curious, when you tried to report the person did it say blocked? And if so does it not allow you to also report them even if it does say blocked?
