Following profiles

Find friends and family by searching for their profile name, using their profile link or via their playlists by selecting their name beneath the playlist title. To add their public playlist to their collection, select the heart Add icon.


If you would like to remove a playlist due to explicit content, you can unfollow or block a user by following the steps below. You can also control the content you listen to by blocking a specific artist or song or disallowing explicit content

When you block someone, both users automatically unfollow each other. As a result, neither user can see or access the other’s profile or playlists or appear in search results.

To block a user:

  • Go to the user’s profile page that you want to block
  • Select the three-dot icon next to the user and click Block
  • Select Confirm
  • You will see a confirmation message at the bottom of the screen that the user has been successfully blocked.

To unblock a user:

  • Select the three-dot icon in the upper right corner of your TIDAL Profile
  • Go to Settings -> My Content -> Blocked and select Profiles to access your list of blocked users.
  • Select Unblock next to the user you want to unblock.
  • You will receive a pop-up. Select Confirm. You will see a confirmation message at the bottom of the screen that the user was unblocked. You must manually follow each other again after the unblocking was performed.
