5 Ways to Block Someone on Twitch App for iPhone and Android
Over the past few years, gamer interaction platforms have been rising in popularity. However, there is no guarantee that you will like everything you come across on these social platforms. We previously provided a guide on blocking users on Discord. In this article, we will show you how to block someone on Twitch using the iPhone and Android app.
There are numerous ways to block someone on Twitch. You can search for their username and block them, but if this is time-consuming, Twitch offers a few quick options to block accounts. We will explain all of this, but first, let’s understand the consequences of blocking someone on Twitch.
What Happens When You Block Someone on Twitch Mobile App
Blocking someone on Twitch removes them as a follower and prevents them from following you. They cannot send private messages or use the Whisper feature.
If you are a streamer, blocking someone stops them from subscribing to your channel or watching your streams. It also prevents them from buying gift subs for other users.
To filter out inappropriate messages in the live chat, you can block the user. Once blocked, you won’t see their messages in the chats you don’t moderate.
Now that you understand how the blocking feature works, let’s see how to use it on Twitch.
How to Block Someone on Twitch on iPhone and Android
Here are five ways to block someone on Twitch using the mobile app. The procedure is the same for both the iPhone and Android app. Let’s start with the traditional way of blocking someone: search for their username and use the block button.
1. Block Someone using Twitch Search
If you want to block a user on Twitch, follow these steps:
1. Open the Twitch app.
2. Enter the user’s username in the search bar and open their profile from the search results.
3. Tap the three dots icon in the top right corner.
4. Tap “Block” to prevent the user from interacting with you on Twitch.
This is how you can block a user using the search bar. If you come across something on your feed that you want to block, follow these steps.
2. Block a Twitch User From Feed
Twitch recommends channels, and sometimes you wouldn’t want a particular channel popping up on your feed. Yes, there’s the option to mark it as not interested in recommendations, but it doesn’t guarantee that you’ll never come across it again.
To completely get rid of a particular user or streamer from Twitch, consider blocking them.
Step 1: Open the Twitch app and tap on the three dots icon next to a recommendation you don’t like.
Step 2: Tap on Block streamer/user.
That’s all you need to do. Next, let’s see how to block someone on Twitch in live chat.
If you notice a user spamming or sending inappropriate messages on someone’s live chat, you can easily block them. Here’s how:
Step 1: Open the Twitch app and tap on the username you want to block in the live stream chat.
Step 2: Tap on Block.
But what if you’re receiving private messages on Twitch and want to block them? Read the next section to learn more.
4. Block a Twitch User on Whisper
Twitch’s Whisper feature enables private chat between two users. To block a user in Whisper chat, follow these steps:
1. Open the Twitch app and go to the Whisper chat window.
2. Tap on the Settings icon.
3. Look for the Block option and tap the Block button.
This will block the user, and they will not be able to send any Whispers to you among the other restrictions enforced by blocking them. But do you receive a lot of Whispers from accounts that you don’t follow? You can solve this!
5. Block Whispers From Strangers on Twitch
Twitch has a feature to disable Whispers or private messages from accounts you don’t follow. This is a great way to get rid of spam and unwanted messages on Twitch.
Step 1: Open the Twitch app and tap on your profile icon in the top right corner.
Step 2: Tap on Settings.
Step 3: Tap ‘Security and Privacy’.
Step 4: Turn on ‘Block Whispers from Strangers’.
To block someone on Twitch, follow these steps. However, if you want to unblock a user, here’s how.
How to View Blocked Users and Unblock Someone on Twitch
If you accidentally blocked someone on Twitch on your iPhone or Android and want to unblock them, you can do so easily. However, note that unblocking them will enable them to interact with you on the platform. Here’s how to unblock someone on Twitch:
1. Open the Twitch app and tap on your profile icon in the top right.
2. Go to Settings.
Step 3: Tap ‘Security and Privacy.’ Step 4: Under Blocked Users, you’ll see a list of users you’ve blocked. Tap Unblock next to the account you wish to unblock.
