How Do I Unblock An Application I Accidentally Blocked On Facebook?



Log into Facebook, then go to http://www.facebook.com/privacy/ (or via the “Account” dropdownmenu choose “Privacy Settings”)
Click “Manage Blocking” under the part “Blocked People and Apps”.
Applications & Users you have blocked will be listed here. Simply click “Unblock” on the application or friend you want to unblock. The application will now be unblocked, so you may feel free to search for it and re-add it to your profile.
Good luck, and happy Facebooking.

  1. Thank you so much!!!! I couldn’t figure it out. I looked at other sites and no one had a clue. thank you!

  2. FINALLY, after an evening of trying everyone’s tips & tricks, I find one that actually works, and doesn’t hurt my brain trying to figure out, lol! Thank you so much!!

  3. I knew to do this, but I’m trying to figure out why it didn’t work! It is no longer in my blocked apps, but when I try to load the page, I receive an error message. I’ve tried to reach the page through several different avenues. No luck. 🙁 I’m really disappointed. I only blocked the app to try and remove the unending respawning of requests on the confirm request page (I was about 4 months behind!). I hoped to reactivate it and pick up where I’d left off. I’ve lost both FarmVille and Farm Town. Maybe I’m better off without them. 🙁

  4. Thank you ! i wanted to play a game that anoyyed me nefore (so i blocked it) and didnt no how to get it bakc … well this is RIGHT YHOO ARE THE BEST 😀

  5. Thanks so much!!! really helped, didnt realize i had blocked it and then i wanted to play, lol!
    thanks again.

  6. he new facebook outlook doesn’t show the “Blocked applications” list under “Applications and Websites” Any updates on that? Thank

  7. Since facebook updated the way to unblock something/someone on facebook, I updated the post 🙂

  8. Blocked apps does not show up on my Apps and websites. Now what do I do? Could someone please help!

  9. Thanks to the people how make this i feel really better and i can play with my friends again….

  10. thanks! im glad that some people shares their knowledge to others.. it help a lot!.

  11. This doesn’t work for me.
    I checked this several times, and the application i want to unblock is not on the list.
    I don’t get the posts on the news feed, i don’t get my invitations etc….

  12. thanks for the information about unblocking an application – i’ve unblocked frontierville but still cannot access it – after selecting allow application i now get this message :

    “Invalid API Key
    The application you are trying to use does not exist or has been disabled.”

    Is there any other suggestions you could make?

  13. hi. . my friend add me in facebook but im not accept her instead i block her and i click unblock again but the probelem is she cannot open her facebook always error. .

    can you please help me what should i do for this.

  14. this unblocking didn’t work for me either. I still can’t get the game to work.. tried it several times.. frustrated as heck

  15. This does not work for me either: I found “Privacy Settings”, but but there is no link to “Edit Your LIsts” or “Block Lists”, so I’m still clicking aimlessly about trying to find the right menu. I really hate FaceBook at times like this.

  16. It has now changed how to unblock… Now go to account>Privacy settings>Then right at bottem there is “Blocked Lists”. That will take you to blocked applications and friends

  17. no first you go to facebook then go on search and
    type any of your friend name then click on it
    and down a corner there will be written block this person
    click it and there a box will appear click on block and sumbit
    then there will be option shown to unblock then click on unblock

  18. You want to re-enable something you blocked by accident? Do this.

    Go to HOME
    Click on ACCOUNT in upper right corner
    Click on PRIVACY SETTINGS
    Scroll down to the bottom and click on BLOCK LISTS (edit your lists)
    Scroll down and it will show your blocked apps!!!!
    Just click on UNBLOCK next to the app you want to re-enable.
    DONE!!

    Normally this would work, but when I click on Block List, the link either doesnt work or my computer is getting locked up. Is there any other way to unblock? I’ve left messages for facebook with no response 🙁 HELP!

  20. I’ve tried the tips said here – but under “blocked” it says I have nothing! Yet I can not see my game on my wall – I *know* I’ve blocked it by accident.

    Where do I go to fix this? Any ideas, please?

  21. This worked for me! Thank you so much! i tried to find it myself with the directions from Facebook and couldnt find anything! they need to work on that!!!

  22. i’ve tried all the solutions above but it didn’t worked from me, i tried forcing ti to load the application by visiting another mafia profile page… you may use another profile page… for example.
    http://apps.facebook.com/inthemafia/status_invite.php?from=755603673

    it will then prompt you that you blocked this application… please wait for a while becasue i noticed that it took some time to load the mafiawars page.. now it is working.

    i hope this helps…

  23. Go to “news feed” on left side of page. Click, now go to center of page and click on the “Top news”. Scroll to bottom of page and click on “edit options”.
    Now choose “Friends Pages Applications” .
    Scroll down list and click “add to News Feed” to unblock application.

  24. i have tried all the suggestions listed above, however the application i want to unblock does not show up as being blocked on any of my lists.. the application shows on my profile but not my wall…. how do i correct this?
