How to Unblock Someone on Facebook

Social media can sometimes be dangerous. Unfortunately, you may encounter malicious people, harassers, and people with the capacity to harm you. If you don’t want to experience them, you can block them on Facebook and have them access to your account. This feature is available on many social media sites. And it is a very effective method in terms of user privacy and security. After you have blocked it, you can unblock someone on Facebook. To make this is very simple.

Unblock on Facebook

If you want to unblock a contact, you can unblock and add it back to your friend list. Once you unblock, he/she will access your profile again. You can unblock someone by following these steps:

  • Open your Facebook profile and login in
  • Go to Settings & Privacy
  • Settings
  • Privacy -> Blocked
  • In this section, you can see everyone you have blocked. You can select and unblock from the list
  • Or you can select new contacts to block them.
  • This process is very sensitive. Please unblock only those you are sure of them.

Unblocking on Mobile

One of Facebook’s easiest features for users is that the settings are almost the same in both the web page and the mobile app. The unblock process on the web page, and the mobile application’s unblocking process is performed with the same steps. You can use the method we wrote above in both mobile and website. To unblock someone on Facebook is the same in Android and IOS operating systems. Another method is to enter the person you blocked, enter the 3-point settings in the upper right corner and unblock. The Facebook settings option is quite advanced.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you unblock a person you’ve previously blocked, you have to wait for 48 hours in order to block them again.

The person you unblock does not get any notification regarding you’ve unblocked them; however, since you need to wait for 48 before blocking them again, they might see your activity or profile as a suggestion.

When you unblock someone on Facebook, if they’ve been a friend of you beforehand, you don’t automatically add them as a friend. You have to manually add them a friend, and if they’ve disabled the option to allow others to add them as a friend, you may not be able to do so.
