Block and restrict direct messages

On Heylo, members have control over who can send them direct messages. Any member can block another member.

Blocked members

  • Any existing direct message conversation is deleted when blocked, and no new direct message conversation can be initiated.
  • Blocks do not apply to group activities. For example, members can still see messages and event attendance in the group.
  • Blocked members cannot direct messages.
  • No notifications are sent to the person who was blocked.
  • For further unwanted or inappropriate activity, consider selecting Report.
