How to: Block a Geni Member

Posted March 21, 2011 by Geni | 4 Comments

Like any collaborative effort, there are going to be some people you don’t want to interact with on Geni. With the tools that we have, it’s quite easy to prevent contact completely. All you have to do is go to the profile in question, and then follow these steps:

Step One: Click on "More Actions"

Step Two: Click "Block This User"

Step Three: Confirm that you do want to block this person.

If you want to see who you’ve blocked, you can always go to the Block User Settings page. Unblocking members is as easy as a click on their name.

    There should be a way to delete non-family members who have been erroniously added by interlopers or people who simply do not understand how a family tree works!
