How do I block or unblock someone?

On desktop (MacOS and Windows) or on Wire for Web:

In the conversation list:

  1. Hover the cursor over the name of the person you'd like to block.
  2. Click Down Arrow ▼.
  3. Click BLOCK.
  4. Confirm by clicking BLOCK again. 

The conversation with the blocked person is hidden from the active and archived lists. A blocked person will not be explicitly notified that you've blocked them.

To unblock a person:

  1. Click Contacts.png People.
  2. Search for them by their profile name using the search field.
  3. Click their name in the search results.
  4. Click UNBLOCK to allow them to contact you again.
