How to Unblock Someone on Tiktok
To unblock someone on TikTok, you’ll need to open the app on your phone and go to the Blocked accounts section of the Privacy settings. From there, tap on the Unblock button to the right of the TikTok user you want to unblock.
Method 1: Unblocking a TikTok Account Using the Mobile App
To unblock a TikTok account using the mobile app:

Method 2: Unblocking a TikTok Account from their Profile Page
Another way to unblock someone on TikTok is by visiting their profile page and tapping on Unblock. If you remember the username of someone you’ve blocked on TikTok, use the search bar to visit their profile page. Tap on the red Unblock button underneath their Follower count, and then confirm the selection by tapping on Unblock again on the pop-up.
Remember, unblocking someone will allow them to send you messages, view your posts, and follow you. They will not be notified that you unblocked them.
