How To View Someone’s Facebook Who Blocked You

Your Quick Answer:

To view someone’s Facebook profile even if you’re blocked, you have to find out the profile link of that Facebook account.

You can get the profile link from your Facebook messenger or the chat inbox on the Facebook desktop, however, you can perform the action on both mobile and desktop.

Once you got the link just open the incognito window and open the URL, and you’ll be able to view the profile.

Also, you can search the people on Facebook or get help from mutual friends to see his profile stuff if it’s locked.

If you can’t see the person’s Facebook profile then there could be many reasons, the person may have blocked you or deleted his profile.

As you know Facebook added a new feature to lock your profile from non-friends that hide stuff also but this does not hide the display picture or the entire Facebook profile.

You have three ways to find someone’s Facebook profile who is being blocked and here you have the detailed guide in this context.

How To View Someone’s Facebook who Blocked you:

If you want to view someone’s Facebook profile who blocked you then you will get the exact guide from this article.

To do this, you can view the profile of the person by logging out of your Facebook profile and going to the link of his profile that you will get from Messenger or from your Facebook messages section.

1. Find Link From Messenger & View Profile

If you are on your Facebook message section then you can get the profile link from Messenger on your desktop or you can see the same profile directly from your Messenger also by tapping on the profile icon and this will open up the profile of that person.

If you see the error message just copy the URL (when you’re on a desktop) and just log out of your Facebook and then reopen the profile URL or you can do this from the incognito window when you are not logged in.

If the profile opens up then you can see the profile picture along with all the stuff uploaded onto that profile of the person who blocked you.

2. Find Profile with Tagged Photos

Another method that you can take is to view the profile of the person by looking at the tagged photos of the person to find this profile link with the latest username, photos can be found by search and all the tagged photos will show up on the result.

But, remember that the person who has blocked you would not show up on your profile rather you have to try this from your friend’s mobile.

1. Profile Picture if the person blocked you

If you’re wondering to know whether you can view the profile of someone else who has blocked then the answer is yes, but from another account.

You’ll see the blank image on the profile picture that can’t be replaced until the person unblocks you.

Once you’re out of your profile or using your friend’s mobile, you will be able to see the current profile picture and the entire profile info of that person. If your friend is on his Facebook friend list, you can see the all tagged and posted images from his timeline.

Just to find out in case you forgot the profile link you can use the Facebook search to open the profile from the Facebook app, the same you can find out from your desktop browser also.

3. You can’t invite or add him to any groups

When you’re blocked by someone on Facebook, you won’t be able to add or invite the user to any of the Facebook groups.

While sending invites, you can search for the user’s name in the search box to see if he appears in the results or not. If he doesn’t appear in the results, it means that the user has blocked you.

4. You Would Not Find Him in Friends List

When you’re suspicious that a friend has blocked you, check your friend list on your Facebook account. You need to search for the user after opening the list and see if his name shows up in the results.

When someone blocks you on Facebook, you will not be able to send messages to the user on Messenger anymore. The previous chats with the user will simply disappear and you won’t find him by searching him on Messenger.

Therefore, search and check if his profile shows up in the search results of Messenger. If it doesn’t show up, it’s because you’ve been blocked by the user.

Another way to find out if the user has blocked you or not is by searching for him on Facebook. When someone blocks you, you will not be able to find his account on Facebook until you’re unblocked by the user.

If you search for the user on Facebook, you’ll not find the user’s profile in the search results, seeing which you can find out whether he has blocked you or not.

The Bottom Lines:

If the person just blocked you and changed his username in that case you have to know the username at first and then open it from the Incognito mode of the browser and you will get his current username from any older photos where he was tagged before.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Why can’t I find someone I blocked on Facebook?

If you can’t find someone you’ve blocked on the Facebook block list, it means that the user has deactivated his profile.

Only after he reactivated his profile, you’ll be able to find his profile in the block list. It’s also possible that you’ve unblocked the user previously, which is why his name is not on the block list anymore.

2. Why can I still see comments from someone who blocked me?

When you’re blocked by someone on Facebook, you won’t be able to read each other’s comments on any posts of a mutual friend while others can see and read both of your comments.

If you can still see comments from someone who you think has blocked you, it means that the user has unfriended you and not blocked you on Facebook.
