In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of unblocking someone on your Android phone. Whether you accidentally blocked someone or changed your mind about blocking them, it’s easy to reverse the action and allow them to contact you again.

Step 1: Open the Settings app

Start by locating and opening the Settings app on your Android phone. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping the gear icon.

Step 2: Navigate to the “Blocked numbers” section

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the option labeled “Blocked numbers.” Tap on it to proceed to the next step.

Step 3: View your blocked contacts

On the Blocked numbers screen, you will see a list of all the contacts you have currently blocked. Take a moment to review this list and make sure that you have indeed blocked the person you want to unblock.

If you are unsure if a specific contact is blocked:

  • Tap on each contact’s name individually to view their details.
  • If there is an option that says “Unblock” or “Remove from block list,” then this contact is currently blocked.

If you want to unblock multiple contacts:

  • Navigate back to the Blocked numbers screen.
  • Tap on the checkbox next to each contact’s name that you want to unblock.
  • Once selected, tap on the “Unblock” button located at either the top or bottom of your screen (depending on your device).

Step 4: Confirm the unblocking

After tapping on the “Unblock” button, you will be prompted with a confirmation message. The exact wording may vary, but it will generally ask if you are sure you want to unblock the selected contact(s).

Step 5: Unblock the contact(s)

To proceed with unblocking, confirm your decision by tapping “OK” or a similar option. The selected contact(s) will now be removed from your blocked list, and they will be able to reach out to you again.


  • If you have blocked a contact from multiple apps (e.g., Phone app, Messages app), unblocking them in one app may not automatically unblock them in other apps.
  • If you cannot find the “Blocked numbers” option in your Settings menu, try searching for it using the search bar at the top of the screen.

Congratulations! You have successfully unblocked someone on your Android phone. Remember to use this feature responsibly and only block or unblock contacts as needed.
