How To Unblock Someone On Facebook On The App and PC

Do you want to unblock someone on Facebook? Did you unintentionally block someone on Facebook that you wish to unblock? Have you found out the true identity of someone you blocked that you now want to unblock?

Facebook is one of (if not the) most used social media platform in the world with over 500 million monthly active users. As a result, many users come from different countries, backgrounds, and races who might get into contact with you.

Because of this, you might get pissed at someone on Facebook and as such, you may decide to block him/her. When this happens, the person can neither send you a message nor call you.

Despite blocking someone, there may also be instances where you made a mistake; this could be by blocking the wrong person or the person you blocked has apologized for his/her fault or whatever the reason may be.

When such a thing happens, the thing you need to do is to unblock the person. You can do this on the Facebook app or your PC. In this article, I am going to show you exactly how to unblock someone on Facebook on the app and PC.
