What happens when you block someone on Instagram DM? They won’t be notified that they have been blocked by you. Their previous likes and comments on your posts will still remain but you can delete them freely if you want to. They can also see your likes and comments on public accounts.

The messaging thread of the person you blocked will still remain in your direct inbox however you will not be able to send them a message. If you’re in a group message with the person that you blocked  you’ll get a dialog asking whether you want to stay in the group or leave. If you choose to stay in the group, you’ll be able to see messages from the person you blocked in the group.If the person you blocked sends you any messages in Direct, you will not receive those messages, and they won’t be delivered later if you unblock them.
