How to Tell Who Has Blocked You on Instagram

How to Tell If You’ve Been Blocked on Instagram or If Someone Has Deleted Their Profile

Instagram, owned by Meta, does not notify users when they are blocked by someone, but there are several ways to see who has blocked you on Instagram.

Instagram, like most social networks and messaging apps, allows users to block an account for various reasons such as disputes, antipathy, content theft, or even harassment.
Finding out who has blocked you on Instagram is not impossible through various useful tricks.

Methods to See Who Has Blocked You on Instagram

If you suspect you have been blocked on Instagram and haven’t seen a specific profile’s stories and photos for a few days, here are 7 ways to find out:

  1. Use the search feature
  2. If you suspect being blocked, the first step to find out if someone has blocked you on Instagram is to directly visit their profile using the search button.

  3. Check from another account
  4. Another quick way to check if someone has blocked you on Instagram is to try searching for them using another account.
    If the profile is visible from the other account, you might be blocked.
    However, if you still can’t find them, they may have changed their username or deactivated their profile.

  5. Check the profile on the web
  6. Each Instagram user profile has a unique link that includes their username.
    To visit someone’s profile page, simply type, If you see the message “Sorry, this page isn’t available,” the account either doesn’t exist or you may have been blocked.

  7. Tag or mention the profile
  8. Instagram doesn’t allow you to tag or mention people who have blocked you.
    To check, try tagging or mentioning the profile in a message.
    If the account exists but you can’t see any posts, you are likely blocked.

  9. Search for mentions on your profile
  10. Even if you can’t search for a person’s profile or message them if they’ve blocked you, Instagram retains your previous conversations and comments.
    Click on the profile name to see if it loads; if it doesn’t, they may have blocked you.

  11. Check your DMs
  12. Another way to check if a user has blocked you on the platform is to go to the DM (messages) section and open the conversation with the suspected person.
    Touch the username at the top of the screen; if you see “Instagram User” and can’t see their profile picture, they may have blocked you.

  13. Use an app
  14. To find out which account has blocked you on Instagram, you can use various apps available on iOS and Android.
    One of the best options is Reports+, which allows you to understand both who has unfollowed and who has blocked you.
