How to See Blocked People on Facebook (Guide for 2024!)

Have you ever blocked someone on Facebook, then forgot who it was? Or wanted to unblock someone but couldn‘t remember how? As a social media consultant, I often help entrepreneurs manage blocked users for privacy or business purposes.

In this comprehensive guide, I‘ll show you how to view your blocked list on both mobile and desktop.

Why You Might Want to View Blocked Users

Here are some common reasons for wanting to see your blocked list:

  • You forgot who you‘ve blocked. It‘s easy to lose track if you‘ve blocked someone in the past. Checking your list refreshes your memory.
  • You want to unblock someone. Whether you had a change of heart or added them by accident, viewing the list lets you unblock users.
  • To enhance security and privacy. Periodically reviewing blocked users gives you better control over who can access your profile and content.

According to Facebook, over 40% of users have experienced harassment on the platform. As an entrepreneur, keeping your blocking settings up-to-date is key for protection.

Step-by-Step Guide to View Blocked Profiles

Fortunately, Facebook makes it easy to see exactly whom you‘ve blocked. Just follow these simple steps:

On Mobile

  1. Open the Facebook app and tap the ≡ menu icon in the bottom right
  2. Scroll down and choose Settings & Privacy
  3. Select Settings
  4. Tap on Blocking to view your blocked list

On Desktop

  1. Go to and click the down arrow ⁝ menu
  2. Choose Settings & Privacy
  3. Select Settings in the left column
  4. Click on Blocking to see blocked profiles

Tip: You can also unblock people from this page by clicking "Edit List" and then "Unblock."

What Blocked Users Can Still See

When you block someone on Facebook, what exactly do you restrict them from? Here are some visibility notes:

  • They won‘t see your posts or be able to message/call you
  • Any friends or followers you have in common will still see that user
  • Previous Messenger conversations remain visible if you‘ve talked before

So while blocking prevents direct access to your profile, it doesn‘t completely eliminate their presence if you have overlapping connections.

Expert Tips for Managing Blocked Users

As an entrepreneurship consultant, I recommend periodically reviewing your blocked list to take stock of who can and can‘t access your profile. Here are some best practices:

  • Check annually for an audit of blocked users
  • Unblock judiciously if you think someone isn‘t a risk anymore
  • Use blocking to supplement privacy settings for better control
  • Report harassment to Facebook if you feel unsafe or threatened
