How to Unblock Someone on Facebook
If you’ve previously blocked someone on Facebook and now wish to unblock them, you’ll be pleased to know that the process is straightforward. Whether you’ve had a change of heart or want to reconnect with an old friend, unblocking someone on Facebook can be done in just a few simple steps. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of unblocking someone on Facebook.
Step 1: Access Facebook Settings
To unblock someone on Facebook, you’ll need to access your account settings. Here’s how to do it:
1. Open the Facebook app on your mobile device or go to the Facebook website on your computer.
2. Log in to your Facebook account using your username and password.
3. On the Facebook app, tap on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of the screen. On the website, click on the down arrow in the top right corner of the page.
4. Scroll down and select “Settings & Privacy” on the app or “Settings” on the website.
5. Choose “Settings” from the menu that appears.
Step 2: Navigate to Blocking Settings
Once you’re in the Facebook settings, you’ll need to find the blocking settings to unblock someone. Follow these steps:
1. On the Facebook app, scroll down and select “Blocking” under the Privacy section. On the website, click on “Blocking” in the left-hand column.
2. You’ll now see a list of the people you’ve blocked on Facebook.
Step 3: Unblock the Person
Now that you’re in the blocking settings, you can proceed to unblock the person you wish to reconnect with. Here’s how to do it:
1. Scroll through the list of blocked users until you find the person you want to unblock.
2. Tap on the person’s name or click on the “Unblock” button next to their name.
3. A pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm the unblocking action. Tap “Unblock” again to proceed.
Step 4: Confirm the Unblock
After confirming the unblocking action, the person will be unblocked on Facebook. It’s important to note that unblocking someone will not automatically add them as a friend again. If you wish to reconnect with the person, you’ll need to send them a friend request or accept their request if they send one to you.
Unblocking someone on Facebook allows you to reestablish connections and regain access to their profile and content. Keep in mind that unblocking someone does not remove any previous messages or interactions you had with them while they were blocked.
