How to Unblock Yourself on Facebook or Messenger? – Working

If you’re blocked by someone on Facebook or Messenger then you can unblock yourself in several ways but in some cases, you may have to contact the person as you want to actually send a message or want to spy on posts.

If you want to just spy on the posts and what the person is doing while you’re blocked, you can just create another Facebook account and request private posts. There are also some ways to view private Facebook profiles. However, the public posts can be viewed from the secondary account.

There is a particular way to unblock yourself from a Facebook group.

To unblock yourself on Facebook, you have to request the person to unblock you either through mutual friends or using another Facebook account. If you are sending messages to the person then requesting the person is the best option as he may block you again. But, if you want to spy on his profile, just creating another fake profile is unblocked.

To unblock yourself from Facebook Messenger, you can posts comments to the person’s posts and letting him know about the blocking he made on chat and requesting to unblock. This solves the issue and getting you unblocked from someone’s Messenger.

In this article, I will explain all the methods in detail so that you can take the steps easily and get yourself unblocked.

Know if the person blocked you on Facebook or Messenger

When you can no longer see a friend’s posts on your feed and are unable to tag them anywhere, you start to wonder if they have blocked you. Then you look for their name in the search box and no results appear. Opening their account also displays the error that the user is unavailable. 

When you check your chat history, the conversations are still there but instead of their name, it shows ‘Facebook User’ and you would be unable to send a new message.

All of this would imply that either:

  • The person has completely blocked your profile on Facebook.
  • The person has blocked you only on Facebook Messenger.

Although, you can check if someone blocked you on Messenger or Facebook.

How to Get Unblocked from Someone’s Facebook?

Once blocked by someone on Facebook, there are no options to unblock yourself unless the person does that. You can be unblocked only if you request the person and he finally unblocks you.

Now, maybe the block is done on Messenger while the other parts are unblocked (i.e. posts, stories, etc). You can request the person on posts by commenting to unblock you on Messenger.

  • Go to the profile of that person.
  • Find the post on the profile.
  • Just comment and request to unblock you on Messenger.

That comments will be visible and notified to the person and chances are there that he will unblock you.

That’s why you must try your best to request the person to unblock you. It is important for you to figure out the reason behind them deciding to block you.  It is possible that you might have annoyed them by texting too often, stalked their profile too much. They could have blocked you due to a misunderstanding or a baseless rumor spread by someone else as well. 

Since your messages will be left undelivered because of being blocked, you can try an alternative method of sending a message.

  • Log in to the Gmail account which you have used to register on Facebook.
  • Get the Facebook mail account of the user who has blocked you. This will be ‘Timeline name + facebook.com. For example, if their name is Pranab Sen, it would be [email protected]
  • Now send a mail to this mail ID with your message in the subject line and empty body. 

If you know them in real life, it will be better to meet them in person to talk things through. This will give you the chance to inquire what went wrong and apologize to mend things between the two of you. 

Ask Mutual Friends to Help You Unblock

Having a mutual friend can prove to be very beneficial in this situation. They can effectively play the mediator to help resolve the conflict in an objective manner.

Get in touch with that mutual friend and ask if they are willing to ask the person who blocked you to unblock you. If that can feel a bit too rude or the wrong place to step in, they could at least find out whether you had been blocked in the first place by mistake or with strong intention. 

This would aid you to formulate your next plan of action by getting to understand the other person’s point of view. 

Create a Secondary Account

When it appears that things are getting so far out of hand that a friendship important to you might be destroyed. Since Facebook has set no limits on the number of accounts one person might maintain. The best option to contact the person who blocked you is by creating a second account.

  1. First of all, visit the Facebook website and click “Create New Account”.facebook account create
  2. You can use the same name, but you must use a different email address to register that isn’t linked to any existing account.
  3. Fill in the other details required in the registration form like phone number, birth date, gender.
  4. An email will be sent to you to validate your account, and after you click the link in the email. Your account will be completely validated.
  5. You can add profile information and upload a profile picture to avoid appearing as a fake or bot account. Also, you can start adding friends, but this is optional.
  6. Finally, you can proceed to message the user that blocked you. It is recommended to be careful while penning down this message, as this will be your last chance at getting yourself unblocked.

You must be quick as there’s a high chance of you getting blocked on this account as well before getting to initiate communication.

Does deactivating the account or changing the email of the account affect the block?

As no one is able to block you when you have deactivated your account, it leads to the misconception that deactivating a Facebook account wipes out all the blocks placed on it. This is completely untrue, even if you deactivate your account, that would not reverse any previous blocks. On the other hand, a person can unblock you even if your account is deactivated. This can occur as your name will still be displayed on the user’s block list. 

Also, if you change your email address on the account, it would not negate the block. This is because the user has blocked your complete Facebook profile and not the email address associated with it. In conclusion, you can’t take any action on behalf of the one who blocked you to unblock yourself. Only an initiative from that user’s end can do the deed.

The Bottom Lines:

This article explained how you can get unblocked from someone else’s Facebook and the methods are given all are about requesting the person to unblock or create a secondary account.
