How to Unblock Someone on Instagram – How-To Geek

Here are the steps on how to unblock someone on Instagram:

  1. Open the Instagram app.
  2. Tap on your profile picture in the bottom right corner.
  3. Tap on the three lines in the top right corner.
  4. Tap on Settings.
  5. Scroll down and tap on Privacy.
  6. Tap on Blocked accounts.
  7. Find the account that you want to unblock and tap on the Unblock button next to their username.
  8. Confirm that you want to unblock the account.

The account will be unblocked and you will be able to see their posts and stories again.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • You can only unblock accounts that you have previously blocked.
  • If you block someone again, you will have to wait 24 hours before you can unblock them again.
  • If you have blocked someone and then deleted your account, you will not be able to unblock them.

After unblocking the account, you and the unblocked user will be able to view each other’s profiles, posts, and interact on Instagram like before.

Please note that the steps and options in the Instagram app might change with updates, so if you’re using a more recent version of the app, the process may vary slightly. However, the general concept of accessing your settings, finding the “Blocked Accounts” section, and unblocking a specific account should remain consistent.

If you prefer to unblock someone using the Instagram website (, you can do so by accessing your settings, clicking on “Privacy and Security,” and then clicking on “Blocked Accounts.” From there, you can unblock the desired account by clicking on the “Unblock” button next to their username.
