How to Unblock Someone on Twitch

Twitch, just like other social media and streaming platforms, allows you to block users who annoy you or disrespect you on the platform.

Blocking someone is a very simple task. Whether you are using the application on mobile or computer, you can simply select the name card of the person and block him or her.

However, when you want to unblock someone on Twitch, it can become really tricky. Unblocking on Twitch is not as simple as you might think.

Hence, in this post, we will provide you with complete details on how to unblock someone on Twitch. We will share a step-by-step guide for each platform separately including iOS, Android, and PC.

Why Block Someone On Twitch in The First Place?

Although most of the people you meet on Twitch aren’t rude or annoying, there is always a chance that someone irritating might join your stream or send you inappropriate messages.

Luckily, Twitch allows you to block such users. You can simply click on their card in messages, and block them. These users will not be able to send you any more messages or bother anyone in your streams.

Blocking someone also means removing them as followers on your channel. So, once you have blocked a person, he or she will disappear from your followers’ list.

There is also a number of other things these blocked users will no longer be able to do. The blocked users:

  • Cannot send you whispers.
  • Cannot host you on their streams.
  • Cannot add you as a friend.
  • Cannot buy gift subs for other users in your channel.
  • Their messages are filtered out of chats you don’t moderate.

How to Unblock Someone You Have Recently Blocked on Twitch?

Unblocking someone you have recently blocked is easy. You can click on their card and simply unblock them just like the way you blocked them.

Their name card will appear to be recent in your messages. If you are using a PC, you can click on their card, then click on the 3 dots on the right side and select unblock.

While using mobile, whether iOS or Android, once you tap the card of the user, the option to unblock will appear in the pop-up list.

So, you can unblock the user easily. However, if you have blocked a user some time ago, you won’t be able to find their card in recent messages.

How to Unblock Someone by Using Twitch Username?

The easiest method to block and unblock someone is by typing the block/unblock command in Twitch. If you have the username of the person, you can type:

/block [username]

This command will block the user without you having to go through his card. Similarly, when unblocking the person, you can type

/unblock [username]

However, it is very rare for a streamer to remember the username of people he or she has blocked. If you do not remember the username of a person, then you won’t be able to unblock him using this method.

How to Unblock Someone on Twitch Using PC?

The other method to unblock blocked users is through settings. You can go to the settings of your account on your PC and unblock the user whom you had blocked some time ago.

Here are the steps:

  • Open Twitch on your PC.
  • Click on the profile icon in the top right corner of your screen.twitch profile menu
  • A drop-down menu will appear. Click on Settings.
  • You will see a number of tabs in the top horizontal line. Select Security and Privacy.security and privacy

  • Twitch will open the list of blocked users.twitch blocked users

Clicking on the trash icon will remove the user from the blocked list.

How to Unblock Someone on Twitch Using iPhone/iOS?

The reason we are not covering this topic under the “Mobile” heading is that unblocking someone on Android is much different than on iOS.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad, then you are in luck because unblocking would not be a difficult task.

You should follow their steps to unblock users on Twitch on iOS:

  • Open the Twitch app on your iPhone or iPad.
  • Tap on the Profile icon on the top of the screen.twitch profile menu
  • Go to Account Settings.

  • Locate the user you want to unblock and click on the trash icon in front of their username.

Once you remove the users from your blocked list, they will be unblocked and you will be able to receive messages and whispers from them again.

How to Unblock Twitch Users on Android?

If you follow the same steps mentioned above for android, you will see that in the Security and Privacy settings, there is no list of blocked users.

That’s because the unblocking feature was never introduced in the android version of the application. So, you cannot unblock users from the android application.

However, certain third-party platforms allow you to manage your Twitch profile and unblock the blocked users. You will have to log into your Twitch profile on these platforms and they will display the list of blocked users.

One of the most prominent of these third-party platforms is “t.3v.fi”. It provides you with a quick method to unblock anyone you want right on your mobile.
