How to Block Someone on Zoosk (3 Simple Steps)

Hayley Matthews Hayley Matthews

According to Scientific American, almost 30% of people have been contacted by someone on a dating site or app in a way that made them feel uncomfortable. In addition, more than 50% of online daters have seen a profile in which they believe the person presented false information.

Not only can online dating be stressful, but it can be scary. You’ve got catfishers, scammers, and others out there with bad intentions. This is why most dating sites and apps, including Zoosk, allow users to block those whom they feel are being suspicious or abusive. Today, we’ll take you through the three steps you’ll need to complete to block someone on Zoosk.

1. Go to the Person’s Profile

Whether you’re on a laptop, smartphone, or tablet, of course, the first thing you’ll want to do is log into your Zoosk account. Then you’ll want to go to the profile of the person who you want to block. You could do this either via the Search, Carousel, Online Now, Connections, Views, Messages, or SmartPick™ pages.

2. Click the Three Dots

Once you’re on the profile you want to block, look for three gray dots at the bottom right-hand corner of the profile. Click on those dots, and the words Report/Block will appear. Then you’ll click that text.

The three dots at the bottom right-hand corner of someone’s profile will allow you to block them and report them to the Zoosk team.

A pop-up will appear that asks “Why are you reporting this?” The options include Not Interested, Under 18 Years Old, Hate Speech, Inappropriate Photo, Harassment, Spam, Fake Member, and Inappropriate Content. Select the one that best fits your situation. This person will then no longer be able to contact you via messages, chats, winks, or other requests, and he or she won’t show up in your Carousel matches or search results. All reports are kept confidential, so you won’t have to worry about the person knowing.

3. Select Report/Block

When you report someone on Zoosk, you’re also blocking them and vice versa. We think this is a good thing because Zoosk will then be able to hear concerns from users and learn from those concerns, so the team can improve the online dating process more quickly.

Your Safety is Top of Mind at Zoosk

You should always feel safe when you’re on a dating site or app. After all, you’re opening your heart to complete strangers. The folks at Zoosk work really hard to make sure that’s the case, and their blocking/reporting feature is just one of the ways they do that.
