If someone’s crossed the line and you'd like them to swim right off, we've got you covered better than SPF 50 on a hot July day. Blocking a profile will prevent that member from being able to message you, so you don't need to worry about unwanted contact. Just keep in mind - they may still appear in other areas of the app like Meet Me. (You're probably wondering why, and it's actually a safety feature. If you need to contact our support team about the member you've blocked, you'll need to be able to find them so you can give us those details).
If blocking still doesn't feel like it's enough, you can also report them using the Report Profile button to report any behavior that doesn't meet our Community Standards.
How to Block Someone Through a Message:
In the Plenty of Fish App, head to the chat with the member you want to block and click on the three vertical dots on the top right-hand side of your screen. You’ll see a drop-down menu pop up where you can tap Block This Person and/or Report Profile.
How to Block Someone Through Their Profile:
In the Plenty of Fish App, head to the member’s profile you want to block and click on the three vertical dots on the top right-hand side of your screen. You’ll see a drop-down menu pop up where you can tap Block This Person. If you haven't had an interaction with them, you will not see the option to block them. If you are wanting to block them cause they have an offensive profile description or lude photos, you can tap on Report Profile, for our moderators to review.
How to Block Someone on Web:
When you’re chatting with a member on the web version of Plenty of Fish and decide you want to block them, click on the horizontal dots on the right-hand side of the page and click “Block This Person.”
