If you get an automatic message saying, “You Can’t Follow This Account,” you may have been blocked by this person.

This is a thing that usually occurs only on the PC version of TikTok or if you know the exact username of the account.

The mobile app doesn't allow you to find the user's profile or to send a follow request.

Still, you can not be fully sure that this person has blocked you; there is a possibility that the person has deactivated their account or changed their User Privacy Settings. It means that the person has made their account private.

Method No.2: Check Your TikTok's 'Following List'

Another option to see if someone has blocked you on TikTok is to check your TikTok's 'following list.' That is, of course, if you had followed the person before they blocked you.

  1. Open TikTok and tap on the profile icon.

Go To Profile

  1. Tap on your 'following list' (below your profile picture) and type the person’s exact username

Open Your Following List

If you can't find the username, that means that the person might have blocked you.

Note: There is a possibility that the person just deleted or deactivated their account, and you’re, in fact, not blocked.

Another way to check if you’re blocked on someone’s account is to check from someone else’s account if their profile is still active.

You are definitely blocked if the person’s profile is visible from the other accounts and not yours.
