  2. From this screen, select "Search for Users You've Played With" to view a list of users you have matched with. Browse this list to find the appropriate user.
    • If you are unsure which listed user you want to block, you can select users to find out what software you played together and when.
  3. Once you have identified the appropriate user, select "Block", then select "Block" again to confirm.

    • If you would like to unblock the user, find the user again and select "Send Friend Request". You can also select "Unblock".
