Block other users.

[ Edited ]

There is a person who I would like to block from following me, messaging me, sending me tracks, and any other interaction.

I am no longer friends with this person on facebook, and I have selected "Block from inbox" on this person’s name in my inbox.

 

The current minimal feature to block a user does not work at all. I have since selecting "block" received tracks from this user.

 

Please fix these privacy issues. This is the only from of social media I am unable to block this person on, and they are abusing that.

 

Yes, there have been similar posts to this, but the issue has not been resolved, and I thought I could explain it more thoroughly.

 

Thank you,

R4D

Re: Block other users.

Heeeey theeeereeee!

 

This is possible! However you need to do some work with it.

 

First: go to your Inbox and then click "Filter". Now please check "Show only from folks I follow".

 

Then! Just add folks to your list. Go to profile and then "Add person".

 

And now you receive only messages from folks you're following. However those blocked folks can still send messages, but you see only messages from folks you're following!

 

Hope this heeeeelpssss!!!

 

Any questions ... just ask !!!

 Yea, with all the new functionality implemented to Spotify a block user functionality should be a main priority!

Re: Block other users.

I have someone who is adding unrelated tracks to my collaborative playlist. I don't want to make the list uncollaborative because fans of the show Glee might know songs from the show I don't remember and/or have found sources of the songs other than my local ones that they can't see.

 

I'm sure this guy is just adding his music in an attempt to get the attention of the producers of Glee, but I doubt very seriously they follow the playlist. Regardless, I want to block him from adding tracks to the playlist, not block him from sending me messages.

 There is no "Filter" when I go to my inbox. There is an "ignored users," which just brings up a box that says, "You have no ignored users," and doesn't give me any option to add any. Nowhere in the messages section or my profile did I see anything about ignored users, nor did I see anything about "only people I follow," except when it came to whom got to see what in my personal info and community activity.

Hey @TooMuchToFollow ! :) 

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to block someone from following you or from editing a collaborative playlist. Its especially annoying when someone won't stop editing your playlist!

 

The inbox filter is a bit of a random one too, I have never been able to get it to work correctly since Facebook came on the scene!

Re: Block other users.

Hey there.

 

I'm sorry to hear there is no more option to hide unfollowed folks.

 

New design in app, bInbox is now Messages, so there you can talk about music with your friends / other guys.

 

If you want to stop followers in playlist, make it private when you create playlist.
