Blocking Profiles

Blocking Profiles

Blocking a profile completely prevents viewing and interaction between your profile and the profile you are blocking. Specifically, blocking a profile:

  • Removes the blocked profile from Discover, Nearby, Search, Inbox and Favorites
  • You may need to refresh the grid in order to remove a blocked profile from your view
  • Removes YOUR profile from their Discover, Nearby, Search, Inbox and Favorites
  • Un-shares your Private Album, if you have shared it with that profile
  • Prevents the blocked profile from sharing their Private album with you
  • Prevents the blocked profile from rating their interest in meeting you
  • Prevents the blocked profile from messaging you, and vice versa. (This also permanently clears your conversation history with the blocked profile, but this member will be able to view your conversation history again should you later unblock them.)
