Hi, with thte new blocking feature how come once you've blocked the user of your choosing their profile is still visible to you? Like most socal media platforms when you block a user profile you are no longer able to see or search their profile --stopping all froms of abuse. 

 

Please let me know if this is possible or can be while blocking another user on Spotify.

Hey @ccard429,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us here in the Community!

 

By blocking a user's profile, you prevent them from following you, but you cannot follow them either. Their profile, however, is still visible in the app in case you change your mind.

To whom it may concern, 

 

In regards to your blocking feature-

I think it would be alot more valueable that once you block a user account the person blocking the user cannot see that profile upon searching for it in spotifys search engine. However, if you decide to unblock that user at a period in time - you would go into a blocked settings menu to unblock them which releases their profile in spotify's search engine again,making it visible to them. Most other forms of social media follows this layout and I think for mental, social, and physical health this would help a lot of users be able to erase someone that possed a threat to them or stalks them. 

 

Nonethless, we are so grateful there is now an option to block users. We really appreciate it. Maybe one day the tip mentioned above can be part of a spotify update. 

 

Thanks
