How to Block Someone on Instagram on iPhone

Sharing your favorite photos or videos with your friends on Instagram on iPhone is a joyful act of staying connected with not just friends but also with the world. However, there are times you may have to block someone due to certain personal reasons.

I myself have gone through this many a time. So, I know pretty well why you might be compelled to cut away from some friends on this social site.

If you have blocked someone on Facebook, then you’d know that when you block someone on Instagram, he/she would no longer be able to view your photos or videos and even search your profile. You can block both your followers and the ones you follow.

Notes:

#1. The blocked person can’t view your photos or videos. He can’t even see your profile. When you block someone on Instagram, he is not notified about it.

#2. The person you have blocked can still mention your username. You can view his mention in your activity on Instagram. If you don’t like it, you will need to change your username.

#3. When you block someone, his likes and comments from your photos and videos won’t be removed. But, you can remove them from your posts.

Anyway, you have decided to block Instagram followers on your iPhone or iPad, here is how to do it instantly. Let’s have a look!
