How does blocking work?

You can prevent another member from contacting you by clicking on "Block User" from the Actions menu in your conversation with them.

If the member you wish to block said or did something inappropriate, we would like to know about it so that we can take steps to ensure that this type of behavior doesn't continue on CatholicMatch. You can report these instances to us by clicking on "Report Messages" from the Actions menu in your conversation with them.

When someone you've blocked tries to contact you again, they will receive an error message that states, "All communication with [your name] has been blocked".

If you change your mind and would like to remove the block, locate the conversation in your message archives and select "Unblock User" from the same Actions menu.

 

You can also choose to block all messages from members who are not within 15 years of your own age. For more information about this feature, please see: How can I block much older or much younger members?
