If you want to stop specific users from following your account or viewing your profile, you can now do so by accessing your account settings by clicking here, or by accessing your account settings by hovering over your user icon and selecting "Account Settings."
Once you are in your account settings, select "Blocking and Reporting."
This will bring up our blocking and reporting window.
Begin writing the name or profile URL of the user you would like to block in the top or bottom box. When their name appears, click on it.
That user is now blocked! They will appear in your blocked list.
This is easy! Simply click "Blocked" next to the user you'd like to unblock, and they'll become unblocked.
Does the person you want to block not show up in your blocking list? Let us know! Include a link to your Academia profile URL, and the Academia profile URL you'd like to block, and we'll be happy to help you out.
