Blocking States and Countries
Estimated reading time: 1 min
- You can block US states, Canadian provinces and entire countries. Once you create a block, no one in that geographic region (including you!) will be able to view your profile or your stream on our sites.
- You can block as many states and countries as you want, but the more you block, the less traffic you’ll receive. Therefore, we suggest only blocking states and countries where you personally know people.
- To block states and countries, navigate to My Profile->Country Blocking or My Profile->State Blocking and select the states and countries you want to block, then click the Submit button.
- State and country blocking works 95% of the time. However, we cannot guarantee that it will always work. There are many technical reasons for this. For example, if a member is viewing the site from a mobile phone but visiting another state, his location may appear to be in his home state rather than the state he’s visiting. Another example is when members use a VPN or proxy to hide their location. In that case, we cannot determine their true location.
