5 Ways to Block Someone on Twitch App for iPhone and Android

Over the past few years, the number of platforms that help gamers talk to each other has grown. But there’s no guarantee that you’ll like everything you find on these social platforms. We’ve already talked about how to block people on Discord. In this article, we’ll show you how to block someone on the iPhone and Android apps for Twitch.

You can block someone on Twitch in a lot of different ways. You can either search for the user’s name and block them, or, if that takes too long, you can use one of the other ways to block accounts on Twitch. We’ll show you everything, but let’s start by talking about what happens when you block someone on Twitch.

Block Someone on Twitch App


If you block someone on Twitch, they will no longer be one of your followers and won’t be able to follow you either. They won’t be able to send private messages, so they won’t be able to use Whisper.

Also, if you are a streamer and block someone, they won’t be able to subscribe to your channel or watch your streams. Also, they won’t be able to buy gift subscriptions for other people on your channel.

If someone says something inappropriate in the live chat, you can filter their messages out of the chats you don’t moderate. Once you block them, you won’t be able to see them in live chat either.

Now that you know what the feature is for, let’s look at how to use it on Twitch.


Here are five ways to block someone on the Twitch app on your phone. Both the iPhone app and the Android app work the same way. Let’s start with the traditional way to block someone, which is to look up their username and click the block button.

If you want to block a particular user and know their username, you can search for their profile to block them. Here’s how you can do it.

Step 1: Open the Twitch app.

Step 2: Enter their username in the search bar and tap to open their profile from the search result.

Step 3: Once it opens, tap on the three dots icon in the top right corner.

Step 4: Tap on Block to block the user from interacting with you on Twitch.

This is how you can use the search bar to block a Twitch user. But do you want to block something on your feed that you don’t like? Here’s what you should do.

2. Block a Twitch User From Feed

Twitch suggests channels, and sometimes you might not want to see a certain channel in your feed. Yes, there is a “not interested” button that will stop the channel from being suggested, but that doesn’t mean you’ll never see it again.

So, if you want to get rid of a user or streamer from Twitch for good, you might want to think about blocking them.

Step 1: Open the Twitch app and tap on the three dots icon next to a recommendation that you do not like.

Step 2: Tap on Block streamer/user.

That is all you need to do. Next up, let us take a look at how to block someone on Twitch on live chat.

3. Block Someone on Stream Chat

You can easily block a user if you see them spamming or using inappropriate language in someone’s live chat all the time. This is how.

Step 1: Open the Twitch app and in the live stream chat, tap on the username you want to block.

Step 2: Tap on Block.

But what if someone sends you a private message on Twitch and you don’t want to talk to them? Read on for more information.

4. Block a Twitch User on Whisper

There is something on Twitch called Whisper. It’s a private conversation between two people. Here’s how to block a user in the Whisper chat window.

Step 1: Open the Twitch app and in the Whisper chat window, tap on the Settings icon.

Step 2: You will find an option to block the user. Tap on the Block button.

This will block the user, which means they won’t be able to send you Whispers or do other things you don’t want them to.

But do you get a lot of Whispers from people whose accounts you don’t follow? You can figure it out!

5. Block Whispers From Strangers on Twitch

You can turn off Whispers and private messages from accounts that you don’t follow on Twitch. This is a great way to stop spam and other messages you don’t want on Twitch.

Step 1: Open the Twitch app and tap on your profile icon in the top right corner.

Step 2: Tap on Settings.

Step 3: Tap on ‘Security and Privacy’.

Step 4: Turn on the toggle for ‘Block Whispers from Strangers’.

Those were all how you could block someone on Twitch. But, if you changed your mind and want to unblock a user on Twitch, here’s how to do it.


If you accidentally blocked someone on your iPhone or Android, or if you changed your mind and want to unblock them, it’s easy to do. But this will make it possible for them to talk to you on the platform. Here’s what you need to do.

Step 1: Open the Twitch app and tap on your profile icon in the top right.

Step 2: Tap on Settings.

Step 3: Tap on ‘Security and Privacy’.

Step 4: Under “Blocked Users,” you’ll find a list of the people you’ve blocked. Tap the “Unblock” button next to the account you want to get access to again.

So, that’s how you can use the block feature on Twitch or turn it off. Check out the next section if you still have questions, though.


1. Can you temporarily block someone on Twitch?

You can only block someone and even remove the block at any point in time. However, there is no option to temporarily block someone on Twitch.

Content moderators on Twitch will look into the violations made and will take a call to suspend or ban the reported account.


We hope this article helped you improve your Twitch experience by blocking inappropriate content and users. Even though block features are helpful, the best solution is for platforms to do more to teach users how to keep the peace and not break any rules. We do hope that will happen more in the future!
