Looking to learn about how to unblock someone on Pinterest? I got you!

So you didn’t like this guy from another part of the world and you blocked him. Now you are thinking hey! His content wasn’t that bad I should see what he is up to. You miss seeing him in your feed or maybe you just want to check on him.

Or did you block someone by mistake? In either of the cases now you want to find out how to unblock any account on Pinterest? Don’t worry it’s not difficult at all and I will make sure you leave this blog with everything you need to know about unblocking an account on Pinterest.

Let’s not delay it anymore and see how you can do it.

What Happens When You Block Someone On Pinterest?

You wouldn’t want to vibe with everyone on Pinterest especially those who are spamming all over the platform or people who are pretending to be someone else.

In this case, Pinterest gives you an option to block people. When you block someone on Pinterest it will prevent the user from following your account.

Now this person will no longer be able to send you any messages or interact with any of your pins.

But wait there are still some things that this person is able to do.

When you block someone on any other social media platform they do not appear in your search results but that is not the case with Pinterest.

A blocked person can be searched and you can see his/her feed. If you have saved any pins from a blocked user they will still appear on your account and in your Pinterest boards.

But if you saved their pins why did you block them?

How To Find Someone You’ve Blocked On Pinterest

To find someone that you have blocked on Pinterest you will need to use your Pinterest mobile app. I wasn’t able to find a way to do it via desktop.

The process of IOS and Android is the same as in both cases you will be using the native Pinterest application.
