3 signs that you’re blocked on TikTok

TikTok does not directly inform the user if their profile has been blocked and they stop sending any message or notification alert from the person who has blocked you.

Hence, to confirm whether you have been blocked on TikTok, you can either ask them or follow the three steps given as follows:

The following list

Open your Profile page and tap on Following. Go through the list given to check if the person you are doubting falls anywhere in this list of accounts you are following. However, this may not be the only sign as you may have unfollowed them in the past or they have simply removed you as a follower.

Head to the Discover page, a planet-looking icon at the bottom of your screen. Type the username of the profile that you are looking for and try following them. If you are unable to view their bio or videos, they might be hidden. Another sign would be the ‘you cannot follow this account’ prompt which might appear when you try to follow them.

Your presence

Head to your notifications page by tapping on the text bubble at the bottom of the page. Now, look for any place where you may have commented on their posts previously. If you are unable to view any comments or mentions on top not being able to view their videos, you may be blocked.

If you head over to messages, you may be unable to find the messages between you and the person who has blocked you. Any new messages sent will not be delivered even if they are getting a blue tick and all previous messages will have disappeared.
