We'll tell you how to block someone on TikTok, how to unblock someone on TikTok, and how to find out if you've been blocked on TikTok.

How to check if someone blocked you on TikTok

We are going to list three different methods to help find out if someone has blocked you on TikTok. Follow these steps.

  1. The first thing you can do is to check for the user who has blocked you by going to your following list. To do that, open TikTok > tap your profile icon > tap Following > in the search bar, type the username and hit search. If your search fetches no results, you're most likely blocked.
  2. Either way, you can check for tags or any other mentions of you in the user's posts. If you are unable to find those or you're unable to find the post altogether, there's a chance that you're blocked.
  3. Finally, apart from the previous two steps, you can directly search for the user by going to the discover page. To do that, open TikTok > tap Discover > enter the username and finally tap search. If your search fetches no results, there's a high chance that you're blocked.
