This Itechguide teaches you how to block people on Instagram. The guide covers steps to block someone on Instagram from the App or from a PC.

On the Instagram App, you can block someone completely or restrict them. When you block someone on Instagram they will not be able to find your profile, posts or story. However, when you restrict people on Instagram you hide their comments on your posts and photos. The desktop only offers option to block.
