Follow this guide to block users from within Facebook's mobile app

If you ever run into a bothersome user on Facebook, did you know you can block them from within Facebook’s mobile application? Our guide will show you how. Note: These screenshots were captured in the Facebook app on iOS.

Step 1: Tap the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap “Privacy Shortcuts” under “Settings.”

Step 3: Tap, “How do I stop someone from bothering me?”

Step 4: Type the name or email address of the user you’d like to block, and then tap “Block.”

Step 5: If you typed a name, find the user you’d like to block in the list that appears and tap “Block” next to their name.

If you ever wish to unblock a user later on, you can do so by returning to the Privacy Shortcuts menu, tapping “How do I stop someone from bothering me?” and tapping “Blocked users” to bring up the list of users you currently have blocked. Tap “Unblock” next to the user you wish to unblock. Note: You can also block additional users from this screen.
