How to Unblock Someone on Pinterest Easily

Why Would You Want to Unblock Someone on Pinterest?

Sometimes you block someone impulsively or maybe circumstances change. Whatever the reason, it’s easy to reverse the block.

Steps to Unblock Someone on Pinterest

Here’s a quick rundown of how to unblock someone:

  1. Open Pinterest: Fire up the app or go to the website.
  2. Go to Your Profile: Tap on your profile picture.
  3. Access the Menu: Tap on the three-dot menu icon.
  4. Blocked Contacts: Go to the 'Settings' and find ‘Blocked Contacts.’
  5. Locate the Person: Find the person you want to unblock in the list.
  6. Unblock: Hit the ‘Unblock’ button next to their name.

Done. You’ve just unblocked someone. Easy, right?

Alternate Way to Unblock Someone

If you can’t remember where the 'Blocked Contacts' section is, you can also:

  • Go Directly to Their Profile: Search for the user you blocked.
  • Unblock Directly: Tap the ‘Unblock’ button right in their profile.

Sometimes the direct approach is quicker.

What Happens When You Unblock Someone?

  • They can follow you again.
  • They can see your pins and boards.
  • You can interact with their content as well.

Remember, unblocking someone restores all interactions so make sure you're cool with that.
