What happens when I block someone on Instagram?

When you block someone on Instagram they will not be notified. If you have a public profile, they are still able to search for your profile. However, they will no longer be able to see your content or message you. To undo this, you can always unblock them. If your profile is public, they will not be able to search for you.

Check out the photo below to see what they will see if they search for your profile after you block them and what you will see on their profile once you black them if both profiles are public.
