      If you’re not able to see them. It’s because they have blocked you, All you need to do is ask them to unblock you.
      Good luck!

          Try going to Insta Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Blocked Accounts
          Search for the person you’ve blocked.
          If they didn’t show up, It means they have blocked you but you didn’t block the person that’s why they are not visible.
          I hope it helps!

      Look likes a problem with your device. Try logging in with your colleague or partner phone.
      Otherwise, try in an Android smartphone.
      If you need further help, don’t hesitate to reply.

      If you both used cleaner to unblock each other. Give sometime to Insta server. You will see each other !
      Otherwise Just use a alternative account to tag both of yours account and send message to each other. Good luck!

    Hi my boyfriend and I blocked each other and I tried using the app to unblock him but it keeps telling me that the server can’t request and to try again later. I can tap on the other people I’ve blocked and unblock them, but I can’t go through the Instagram app or the app that’s provided to unblock him

    If I can’t find a person in the blocked users of insta cleaner it means I didn’t block them but only they did me?!

    Me and a friend has blocked each other on instragram. I downloaded the clean app and was not able to see anyone on my block list, and I also went under my settings/Blocked, found her but all it does is highlight her name… Is there anything else I can do to unblock her?

    Used this app before and have by mistake used the free point given. Didn’t really then knew how to use the app. Need to unblock one person for free. Anyother way? The dm or mentioning in comment doesn’t work as nothing happens

    I downloaded Cleaner, but in list of blocked users I don’t see anyone who blocked me back…only ones who was blocked just by me. In Instagram I can see all.

    My husband and I blocked each other during a petty argument. Now we can’t unblock one another. We can see the pages on our block lists but we can’t click on the page to unblock them.

    I have a mutual blocking situation on ig, he blocked me then I blocked him somehow. Usually when I go to block list and tap on his profile, it’s blank, but yesterday i saw number of followers, posts, profile photo and button that said “unblock”. I believe he has lifted the block for few minutes and then blocked me again, or…?

      Yes, this could be true. If he blocked you again, you won’t be able to see the number of followers, etc stuff.

      Give it sometime, you’ll be able to see his profile. In case you don’t, there is high chance that he has blocked you too.
