After reading my guide on how to block a user on Facebook Messenger, you have managed to block quite a few users who disturbed you every day with useless and at the same time annoying messages. Recently, however, you realized that you also accidentally blocked a close friend of yours and would therefore like him to give you a hand to remedy the situation. If that’s the case, you have no reason to worry because you’ve come to the right place at the right time!

In the next paragraphs, in fact, I will illustrate you in detail how to unblock a person on Messenger, providing you with all the information you need to do this both from the official app of the service that can be used on smartphones and tablets, and from the Facebook chat and Messenger.com, accessible from your computer. Once you have unblocked a user on Messenger, they will be able to send you messages again and, consequently, you too can return to do so.

Before delving into the topic, however, I would like to make a necessary clarification: if you had blocked a user on Facebook (an operation that blocks a person both on the social network and on Messenger), you will have to restore friendship to the latter. to get in touch with the latter again, as I have already explained to you in a dedicated article. Having clarified that, I would say that we can now actually proceed. Enjoy the reading!

Unblock a person on Messenger from smartphones and tablets

If you want unblock a person on Messenger acting directly from smartphone and tablet, below I’ll explain how to proceed on both Android and iOS.

Android

To unblock a contact on Messenger from a device Android, start theofficial app of the service and log into your account (if necessary). Then open the chat relating to the user you want to unblock by tapping on his first name, which should be in the list of recent chats (if not, look for it in the search bar placed at the top), presses the button (the) located at the top right and, in the screen that opens, tap on the item Unlock placed at the bottom.

Finally, in the screen that opens, move to OFF the switch lever located in correspondence with the wording Block messages sent from [nome dell’utente da sbloccare] And that’s it.

From this moment on, the user in question can return to send you messages. In case you want to block it again, you will have to open the chat of the user in question, press the button (the), select the item Block and move on ON the switch lever located in correspondence with the item Block messages sent from [nome dell’utente da bloccare].

I remind you that, by blocking a user on Messenger, you will not only prevent them from sending you messages, but you will also not be able to do so (unless you revoke the block again).

iOS


You usually use Messenger with yours iPhone or iPad and hence you want to know how to proceed on iOS? The steps you need to take are not very different from the ones I pointed out to you in chapter on Android. Also in this case, in fact, after opening the conversation relating to the user you want to unblock, you must go to the settings of the latter to revoke the block you had previously activated.

Then start theMessenger application on your device, log in to your account (if necessary), open the chat relating to the person you want to unblock and tap the user’s name in question located at the top of the screen. Then presses on the voice Unlock located at the bottom and, in the screen that opens, move up OFF the switch lever located next to the wording Block messages. By doing so, the user will be able to contact you again on Messenger (and you can also do the same thing).

If you change your mind, you can block the person in question again by following the reverse procedure to the one I showed you a moment ago. To do this, therefore, you have to open the chat of the person you want to block, press on his first name, tap on the item Block and move on ON the switch next to the wording Block messages. Easier than that ?!

From Messenger.com

If you want, you can revoke a user’s block by also acting from Messenger.com, the Web version of the famous Facebook instant messaging service, whose interface is very reminiscent of its application for mobile devices.

To proceed, the first thing you need to do is to connect to the main page Messenger.com and log into your account (if you haven’t already). Then locate it in the box on the left the conversation related to the user you intend to unblock or type their own first name in the text field Search on Messenger placed in the upper left corner of the page and give Enter on the computer keyboard.

In the menu that appears, then, click on the item Unblock messages And that’s it. At the end of the operation I suggest you reload the page in order to possibly send a message to the user in question.

If the user you unblocked should bother you again by sending you continuous messages, you can silence him by blocking him for the umpteenth time. To do this, just open the chat relating to the latter, press the button (the) located at the top right, click on thegear and, in the menu that appears, click on the item Block messages. To conclude, then, confirm the operation by pressing on the item Block messages from the box that opens and that’s it.
