Have you ever played the game of blocking and unblocking someone on Instagram? When someone crosses a boundary, we block them off our feed; once they’ve calmed down, we unblock them! We’re quite sure we’ve all blocked and unblocked someone at some point during our Instagram journey!
Now, there can be multiple reasons why we all have grown pretty accustomed to this back-and-forth action. After all, our emotions sometimes run high on social media, and during any conflict with someone we love, blocking really feels like we’ve got a sense of control.
While blocking feels like you hate someone’s guts, unblocking is like extending an olive branch to settle everything. Doesn’t it feel that way most of the time?
However, one question bugs many of our minds: How to find a list of unblocked profiles on Instagram?
Have you given the question some thought, too? If so, we’re in the same boat. Let’s try to find our answers in the blog, shall we?
How to Find List of Unblocked Profiles on Instagram?
We often find the list of blocked profiles on our Instagram! It serves as a sort of mini-list of everyone who has irritated us in one location, and you may review it to potentially unblock people, too!
However, what about the platform’s list of unblocked profiles? Did you ever see one? We’re quite sure none of us have because Instagram doesn’t have a built-in feature for discovering the list of unblocked profiles.
Unfortunately, you don’t see a visible list that might give you access to all the unblocked profiles; you have to accept this reality! We have to find workarounds until the app creators decide to take action! If you’re interested in the workarounds, kindly check the sections below.
Do you remember their last username?
You can conduct a manual search if you do! Yes, you know how we use Instagram to look for people, right?
You will discover the unblocked individual in precisely the same manner! If the individual hasn’t blocked you, they will appear in your search results!
Another issue will arise if they change the username you last recall! If that’s the case, you might be unable to search for them, further complicating matters.
But let us not complicate matters! If you can still remember the username and the user hasn’t changed it, let’s look at how to manually search Instagram for the unblocked account.
The step-by-step instructions are provided below; follow them to see the unblocked profile soon enough!
Steps to conduct a manual search on Instagram for an unblocked profile:
Step 1: Open Instagram and navigate to the magnifying glass icon at the bottom navigation bar. You must click on it.
Step 2: The search tab will appear at the top of the next page. Tap on it.
