How to Find Who Blocked You on Facebook

Since Facebook will not notify you that your Facebook friends have blocked you. Therefore, understanding who blocked you will be a little mess.

But following these simple steps can help you know you have been blocked.

This is one of the straightforward ways to know someone has just blocked you. All you have to do is find his account from a Facebook search.

  1. Visit or Open Facebook on your mobile/ PC.
  2. Click on the search bar, and type the suspect person’s name.

If you cannot find the profile, you have been blocked or the account deactivated. Generally, Facebook shows your friend’s name in real time or after a while. 

2. Find Him/Her on Your Friend List

You can decide if someone blocks you on Facebook or not by checking your friend list. Try to find your friend on your friend list. If you can find his/her profile on your friend list, then you have not been blocked by him/her.
