Who Blocked Me on Instagram? — Here’s How to Find Out

Want to find out which so-called “friend” of yours blocked you on Instagram?

We put together this tutorial so you can find out once and for all. 

You’re casually scrolling through your Insta feed.

Suddenly, a thought pops into your head.

“Huh, I haven’t seen “So-and-so’s” pictures recently. I wonder what they are up to?”

You search for their profile, but their username doesn’t pop up.

You try again and again — nothing.This person didn’t fall off the face of the earth, right?

News alert! You might have been blocked! 

People block users on Instagram for all kinds of reasons. You might have been “friend dumped.” Maybe a former flame of yours just couldn’t take it any more. It could be all those #shirtless selfies. Or maybe they just deactivated their account..No matter the reason, you’ve got to know.


Who blocked you on Instagram?

Follow these steps to find out:

  1. Open the Instagram App and click the Search Button

  2. Search for the culprit’s username. If it shows up, you’re not blocked.  If it doesn’t, continue with Step 3.

  3. Go to a mutual friend’s Instagram. (The closer they are with the suspect, the better.)

  4. Go through their posts, likes, comments and followers to see if the suspect’s user name appears.

  5. If the user’s name appears, click on it.

  6. If you click on the user’s profile and are unable to see their content, even though at the top of their profile it says they have a number of posts, then they have blocked you.

  7. If the user’s Instagram profile is set to Private, then their name will not appear on the search list; they have either blocked you or deactivated their Instagram account.  





If someone blocked you on Instagram, it’s not the end of the world. It doesn’t mean that you have bad content or that you should stop posting some awesome pics and videos.

It’s not you, it’s them.

The best way to move on is to keep doing what you’re doing.

The best revenge is a life well lived, and what better place to showcase your awesome life than Instagram.
