how do I UNblock someone?

Have a call scheduled for tomorrow and the person added me as a contact but I accidentally blocked her. I tried to add her to my list from my end, but it said I couldn't because I blocked her. Have searched in my account and cannot find a place to unblock. Help! and thanks :surprised::happy:

Yay! Thank you!! Had gone to privacy but missed that (in Windows) the Blocked Users appears directly underneath Privacy Settings, on the left side, not in the Privacy Settings main screen.

 

Thanks, ruwim!

Where is 'tools'?  No such category in the tool bar nor in preferences.  I'm on a mac, so maybe the whole set up is different.

Yes, it's different on a Mac, like almost everything else is.

 

On the Mac tool bar click on Contacts > Manage Blocked Contacts.

Re: how do I UNblock someone?

Many thanks for explaining a rather arduous way to "unblock" someone, it should be much easier.  Thanks for taking the time, it's appreciated.  Don
