Block someone's profile on Facebook

When you block a profile on Facebook, that profile will no longer be able to do things such as tag you or see things you post on your timeline.
To block someone's profile:
  1. Click your profile picture in the top right of Facebook.
  2. Select Settings & privacy, then click Settings.
  3. Click Blocking in the left side menu.
  4. In the Block users section, enter the name of the profile you want to block and click Block.
  5. Select the specific profile you want to block from the list that appears and click Block, then click Block [name].
Note: If you can't find someone's profile using this method, try going to the profile and selecting Block from the more menu in the bottom right of the cover photo.
Keep in mind:
  • When you unblock someone's profile, you won't automatically be friends again. If you block a profile you're friends with and then unblock it, you'll need to send that profile a new friend request.
  • People won't be notified when you block their profile.
