iMessage is a messaging service developed by Apple that allows you to send and receive messages from other users easily. The service allows you to block people from sending or receiving messages from your device. If you have received unwanted or inappropriate messages via iMessage, then you can use the steps outlined in this guide to block Someone on iMessage from messaging you.
Step 1: Select the message thread containing the user you want to block.
Step 2: Tap on their name at the top of the conversation thread and select “Info.”
Step 3: Scroll down until you find “Block this Caller” and tap it.
Step 4: Confirm that you want to block the user by selecting “Block Contact.”
Step 5: The user will now be blocked from messaging you on iMessage. You can verify this in Settings > Messages > Blocked Contacts.
Things to Consider When Blocking
- The person you have blocked will no longer be able to send texts, calls, or FaceTime requests to your phone number.
- If you ever want to unblock someone on iMessage, go back to Settings > Messages > Blocked Contacts and select the user’s name. Then tap “Unblock this Caller.”
- You can also block unknown numbers or email addresses from messaging you by navigating to Settings > Messages > Unknown & Spam. Tap “Enable Filter,” and any messages sent from those numbers or email addresses will automatically go into your Junk folder instead of your inbox.
Following these steps should help you block someone on iMessage from messaging you. Remember that even though you have blocked someone, they can still try to send messages from other phone numbers or email addresses. If this happens, you can also use Apple’s filters to block those. With these tips, you should now be able to maintain a safe and secure messaging environment on your device.
Once you have successfully blocked Someone on iMessage, they will no longer be able to send or receive messages from your device. By following these simple steps, you can easily protect yourself and prevent unwanted conversations with people who are not desirable to message you. It is important to keep in mind that blocking Someone does not delete any of their existing messages or contact information stored on your device. Be sure to take additional steps if needed to ensure that all unwanted data is removed.
