Clubhouse app is the new guy in the town and all of a sudden Clubhouse has seen a sudden surge in the number of users all across the globe. People spend endless hours of time joining and listening in various rooms. Since almost all rooms are public, anyone can join the room. This makes it easy for spammers to get into a room and spam others.
If you are facing some issue with a person on the Clubhouse app then the best thing to do is to block that person on Clubhouse. To take it further, you may also report the user as well. Similar to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, Clubhouse also comes with the option to block any user.

All users following you on Clubhouse will be able to see the rooms that you are active in and join them as well. There might be a lot of people with whom you are not on good terms. If that person follows you then he/she will be able to see all the room that you are a part of. Now, this can create problems.
A lot of people might use abusive language and also insult other people publically on the platform. If something like this happened to you then all you have to do is just block that user right away.

Can I See Blocklist in Clubhouse
This is one feature that I wish was available on Clubhouse. As of now, there is no option for you to find people you have blocked on the platform. When it comes to other social media platforms like Facebook and WhatsApp, you can find a section where it lists all blocked users but that’s not the case with Clubhouse.
Since the blocklist option is not available on Clubhouse, it will become hard for you to keep track of everyone you blocked on Clubhouse.
In order. to unblock anyone, you will have to manually visit the profile and then unblock them from there. Since Clubhouse is adding more and more features, we can expect them to include this option in a future update.
