  • At the upper right side on the app, you will see “Name of Selected Person” with an arrow pointing rightwards. Tap on it.
  • At the bottom of the page, you will see “Block” option. Tap on it.
  • Tap on “Block this person on Facebook”.
  • As a result, Facebook app will be opened, opening Facebook profile of that person. At the upper right corner of that person’s profile, you will see an opened box with an arrow pointing upwards. Tap on it. When the sub-menu appears, tap on “Block”.
