How to Block or Unblock a Contact on IMO (Android and iPhone)

IMO is a popular free video call and chat application that is used by millions of users. The block option within the app allows users block a contact. However, the recent update has made it little confusing and you may not find the block button easily. I have seen people asking on forums if IMO has removed the block option from its app. Well, it’s not like that. Block option is still there, but it takes just a little effort to make it appear. We will learn how you can do this.

Note: The Screenshots in the article are of iPhone, but you need to follow the same steps on Android As well. Going to the Contacts or Settings of IMO should not be a problem. If you still face any issue, you can comment and we are here to help.
