League of Legends: How to Unblock Someone

Block & Unblock other players in LoL


Once you’ve blocked a player in League of Legends, they won’t be able to see your online status or communicate with you. This works both ways, so you can’t communicate with the other player either.

It is possible to unblock someone, but is quite difficult to find out where to do so. You may block players if they are toxic, spamming you with friend requests or just hope not to meet them in Solo Queue again. You may have also blocked your friend as a joke, and can’t find a way to add them again.

Below, you can find our quick guide for unblocking players. Whilst we have some more League of Legends guides here.

Unblocking Other Players

Whilst in the home screen of the client, open up the settings menu. You can do this by pressing the cog icon located in the top right corner of the screen, just near the close button.

Here you can configure your game, including notifications, sound, controls etc. We’re just looking to unblock someone, so head on over to the ‘Block List’ area on the left hand side.

You will see a list of blocked players in the window with their username. To unblock them, hover over the name and press the little X button. You can press ‘Done’ at the bottom to save your changes. If you want to block someone, you can also put their username into the search bar at the top and hit the Block button.
