If another gamer is becoming toxic or you simply don't want to talk to them anymore, blocking them on xbox is the way to go. Blocking prevents someone from sending you game or party invites, messaging you, or joining your chats. It also stops them from seeing your online status or achievements. In this article, we'll show you how to unblock someone on your console, Xbox mobile app, or PC.

To unblock someone on xbox, you'll need to know their Gamertag. To find out a person's Gamertag, launch the Xbox app on your smartphone or tablet and select the search icon. Type the player's profile name into the search box and select their profile when it shows up. You'll see a three-dot menu on their profile, which allows you to unblock them.

Alternatively, you can use the Xbox PC app to unblock someone without turning on your console. Launch the app, select Community in the left menu, and search for the person using their profile name. Click the person's profile, select More, and then unblock them from there.

The blocked user won't receive any notifications about being unblocked, and you can't tell if they've been unblocked from the Xbox website, but you can run into them in multiplayer games. It's possible they may be matched with you again, too. They won't be able to send you game or chat invites, but they can see your online status and your progress in their games.
