How to Unblock Someone on Facebook on Android

Facebook is a popular social media platform that allows you to connect with friends, family, and colleagues. However, there may come a time when you need to block someone for various reasons.

Blocking someone on Facebook restricts their access to your profile and prevents them from contacting you. But what if you later decide to unblock them? In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of unblocking someone on Facebook using your Android device.

Step 1: Open the Facebook App

If you haven’t already done so, open the Facebook app on your Android device. The app icon typically looks like a white “f” on a blue background.

Step 2: Access the Menu

In the top-right corner of the app, you will find three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other. Tap on these lines to open the menu.

Step 3: Navigate to Settings & Privacy

In the menu options that appear, scroll down until you find “Settings & Privacy.” Tap on this option to proceed.

Step 4: Go to Settings

In the “Settings & Privacy” submenu, tap on “Settings” to access your account settings.

Step 5: Locate Blocking Settings

In the “Settings” menu, scroll down until you come across “Blocking.” This option allows you to manage your blocked users.

Step 6: View Blocked Users

Tapping on “Blocking” will take you to a screen where all your blocked users are listed. Here, you can see a list of people and apps that you have previously blocked.

Step 7: Unblock the User

Scroll through the list and locate the person you want to unblock. Once you find them, tap on their name to access their profile.

Step 8: Access Unblock Option

On the blocked user’s profile, you will see a blue “Unblock” button. Tap on this button to unblock the user.

Step 9: Confirm Your Decision

A pop-up confirmation message will appear, asking if you are sure you want to unblock the user. Tap on “Unblock” to proceed.


You have successfully unblocked someone on Facebook using your Android device. The person will now be able to view your profile and contact you if desired.


  • If you change your mind and decide to block someone again in the future, simply follow these steps and tap on “Block” instead of “Unblock” in Step 8.
  • Keep in mind that unblocking someone does not automatically restore any previous connections or friendships. You will need to manually reconnect with the person if you wish to do so.

In conclusion,

Blocking and unblocking users is a useful feature on Facebook that allows you to control who can interact with you on the platform. By following these simple steps, you can easily manage your blocked users and maintain a safe and enjoyable online experience.
