We all need some space from time to time, even from those who are closest to us. Sometimes asking for this alone time is hard, so it often seems easier to just block them on social media and our streaming platforms.

Sadly, this action hardly ever resolves a falling out, so if you’re having second thoughts about blocking your friend, and they haven’t noticed it yet, you may want to keep reading.

The easiest and most discreet way to unblock a friend from Apple Music is to search for their username. Please follow these steps to do it: (iOS and Android devices)

  1. Go to Apple Music.

  3. Write your friend’s username. Make sure to add “@” before the name.
  4. Select your friend’s username and click on “Unblock”
  5. If you want to follow them again, tap on “follow”

And don’t worry! Your friend is not going to be notified when you block or unblock them.

If you weren’t able to unblock your friend with the steps from the section above, you might need to ask for their Apple Music profile link.

I know, it can be a bit awkward to ask your friend for it, especially when you’re still working things out, and they haven’t noticed that you blocked them.

  5. Select the messaging app through which you’ll send the link.

Once your friend has sent you their profile link, click on the message and unblock them.
