How to Know if Someone Blocked You on Instagram
Follow these steps to know if someone blocked you on Instagram.
Step 1: To check if a user blocked you, open the Instagram app and search for the who you think has blocked you.
Step 2: Now there could be two things. Either the profile is public or private. If the profile is public, you should be able to see the profile in search. When you see the profile of that person in search, tap on it to open it. If in profile page you can see a number of posts but you cannot see photos and videos, that person may have blocked you.
Step 3: If the profile is private, you cannot search for it and see the posts. So, you can find a mutual friend to get the profile in the follower or following list of a profile to open it.
Step 4: If you get success in finding the profile, try to follow it. If the person has blocked you, you will not be able to follow the person. Even if you tap on follow button multiple times, you cannot follow. It will be same follow button each time you tap on it.
Step 4: This confirms that you have been blocked by the person on Instagram.
Here, you should also know that sending the direct message to a user who has blocked you does not make sense. The other user will not receive your messages and there is no way to know if the person has read your messages.
Now you know how to check if someone blocked you on Instagram.
Note: The person who has blocked you can still see your profile. So, you can consider blocking him.
If a person blocked you on Instagram, you should not be panic. Just avoid that person and stop contacting him/her. I do not encourage cyber stalking or cyber abuse. So, you should respect the privacy of other Internet users. Now, you know how to check if you have been blocked. There is no way to see a list of users who blocked you. You can use these steps to check for every single user you think who blocked you.
