How to Unblock People on Twitch Mobile

If you don’t have access to a laptop then you can always use the Twitch app on your phone to unblock users. However, for both iPhone and Android, this is different. I will be explaining both below.


For the iPhone, it’s almost similar to unblocking someone through your settings on the web browsers of Twitch.

  1. Step 1

    twitch phone menu

    Click on your profile picture. So the following menu shows up and click on account settings.

  2. Step 2

  4. Step 4

    twitch phone unblock list

    Find the user you want to unblock and press unblock.

  5. Step 5

    twitch phone unblock confirmation pop-up

    A small pop-up message will show, to ask if you’re sure you want to unblock a person. Click on unblock and you have unblocked the user.


For Android there are two ways of unblocking people as the blocked users list isn’t available in the Android version of the twitch app.

To unblock people using chat, do the following:

  1. Step 1

    Find the username of the user you want to unblock.

  2. Step 2

    Go to your channel and navigate to your chat.

  3. Step 3

    twitch chat Unblock Android

    In the chatbox write “/unblock “

  4. Step 4

    twitch chat Notification Android

    Press enter and you will receive a notification that you have unblocked the user in question.

Another way to unblock users on Android is with the help of a website that isn’t affiliated with Twitch.

  1. Step 1

    ignored twitch users

    Go to Twitch Ignore List and log in to your twitch account.

  2. Step 2

    blocked users invalid dates

    You will get a list with all the names of the users you have blocked.

  3. Step 3

    Look for the user you want to unblock and press the cross next to the name to unblock them.


Even when you blocked someone by accident, there is a way to unblock the user again. Doesn’t matter if you only have access to a phone at the time or your computer/laptop, want it to be done quick or have some more time to sit down and look for it. There is a way to take care of it.
