TikTok is a world famous platform mostly known for the huge amount of entertainment that it provides in just a small amount of time. Creators are free to spread positivity in every kind of way and be as creative as their imagination lets them to. Though, not all creators want to spread positivity and entertain others and are there to harm others. This is the reason that leads TikTok to have the “block” feature available and easy to access for everyone, though only through a mobile device only.

How to Block a User on TikTok

Blocking a user on TikTok is fairly fast and easy to do. There are just some quick steps that you need to follow and you’ll have it done in a matter of seconds.

  1. Step 1

    First of all you need to be logged in to your account through one of the available options.

  2. Step 2

    Then you need to find the account you’d like to block. Either through a video of theirs if they are on the “for you” page or by searching their name on the “discovery” page.

  3. Step 3

    Then you have to click/tap on their profile, which will lead you to their profile page.

  4. Step 4

    From there you just have to click/tap on the three little dots on the upper right of the page.

  5. Step 5

    Then a menu will open with a plethora of options. Choose the “Block” option and then on the pop up screen the option “Confirm.”

  6. Step 6

    Finally you should be back at their profile page and a small pop up should say “Blocked” and if they had any videos posted you should see none. Then you’re free to continue having fun!

How to See if Someone Has Blocked You on TikTok

There is not a clear indication that someone has blocked you on TikTok like a notification or some sort of indication that other apps have. Though there are two ways that you can find out if someone has blocked you on TikTok. Both ways are tested, work and are quite easy to try out.

  1. 1st WAY

    To find out if someone has blocked you all you have to do is to search his name on the discovery page. If the name, account or info do not appear as a search result, the account that you’re searching possibly has blocked you.

  2. 2nd way

    The second way is a bit harder. By that I mean that you have to search for mentions, search for videos where you tagged that account in the comments or where they tagged you. If you can’t find any mention between your account and theirs, most likely they have blocked you.

Common Reasons for Blocking Someone on TikTok

Some of the most common and widely spread reasons for blocking are:

  • Safety and Security Reasons
  • Bullying, Toxicity
  • Harassment
  • Improve your Well-Being
  • Healthier State of Mind

Blocking someone on TikTok is an easy option. If you think it’s necessary for you to do it, then go ahead and do it. You have nothing to lose and unblocking is as easy as blocking so if anything ever changes, you’re just a few taps away. Remember there is nothing better than good mental health, your mental health.
