How to Block Or Unblock Someone On Match.com? 

On Match, you can take steps to restrict all types of communication from another person. If you block a user, they will not be notified. They will still be able to open and read your profile, but no correspondence will be sent to you. 

You can accidentally block a user or for acts taken by an unauthorised individual. You may choose to unblock the user and resume communicating with them in this scenario.

In this blog, you will find the steps to block or unblock someone on math.com.  So, without any delay let’s jump onto it.

How to Block Or Unblock Someone On Match.com? 

To block a person on Match.com, complete these steps:

1. Log in to your account on Match.com.

2. Go to the user’s profile that you want to block.

3. At the top of the profile page, click the three-dot icon.

4. On the user’s profile page, you should notice a ‘Block’ option. Now click on it

Currently, you can block up to 2000 persons from your contact list. If you wish to restrict more users than that, you’ll have to clean away some previously blocked names, which is uncommon.

If someone has acted inappropriately towards you, you can also block them on Match.com by reporting them. To do so, go to the user’s profile and click the three-dot button, then ‘Report.’ Match will evaluate the report and take relevant action based on the information provided. 

If the charge is justified, the person should be permanently blocked. When you block someone on Match.com, you may not want that person’s profile to show up in any of your search results. 

You had better be sure if you decide to unblock somebody on Match for whatever reason. It’s not always a good idea to unblock someone you’ve previously blocked. 

Unblocking someone on Match can be done in two ways.

Method 1

1. Go to Match.com and log in to your account.

2. Go to the profile of the person you wish to unblock and click Unblock.

3. At the top of the profile page, click the three-dot icon.

4. Locate and select the ‘Unblock’ option.

Method 2

The following is another method for unblocking someone on Match:

1. Go to Match.com and sign in to your account.

2. Go to the top of the screen and click the gear symbol.

3. Choose ‘Unblocking’ from the list of alternatives that appears.

4. Select the user profile from the drop-down menu.

5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the ‘Unblock’ button.

How to remove blocked people from recommendations on match.com?

This can be accomplished by deleting the profile from any of your search results using the steps below:

1. Go to the profile of the user you don’t want to appear in your search results 

2. Open their profile.

3. At the top of the profile page, click the three-dot icon.

4. Click ‘Hide from search’.

What’s the difference between blocking a profile and hiding it?

Profiles cannot be hidden on their own at the present on match.com, though “blocking” will hide them from view. By clicking on the three dots on a member’s profile, or by clicking on “block this person” in a message, you can “Block” their profile. This will prevent the member from communicating with you. Members are not notified that they have been blocked, so don’t worry.

How to tell if someone has blocked me?

If someone blocks you, you will not be notified automatically. If you try to send them a message, though, you will receive a notification.

How can I locate a profile that has been blocked?

Simply click on your profile image at the top of any Match page to go to ‘My account settings.’ Then, on the left side of the page, click’ see blacklisted members.’ You can choose to unblock anyone at any time, and you’ll be able to communicate with them again as soon as you do.

The bottom line

You can remove a profile from your search list without opening their profile if you’re using Match’s app. When they appear in your search results, click ‘Remove’ or ‘Delete from list’ on the profile.

If none of the above-mentioned blocking or unblocking methods works, you’ll need to call Match.com’s customer support and seek assistance from them.

I understand how frustrating it is to be blocked by someone you like. However, I recommend that you put a smile back on your face and get back out there as soon as possible because there are always new people to meet!
