Default Block Checker

Hi - is there a "block checker" to see who is blocking you on messenger? I
received an e-mail today to go to a site - it asks for messenger ID and
password - and you can see who is blocking you.

Is this a msn site?

whoblocked.net

Thank you,

I think the site is a way to get your msn messenger password or could contain
a virus - don't go there is what I was told

Default Block Checker

Greetings,

There is no such thing as a working block checker, unless a user has specifically change
their privacy settings to allow all users to contact them without being on their allow list,
which is most unlikely.

Greetings,

Nope, that's all you need to do. Although if you use the same e-mail address/password
combination for other sites, you should change the password there as well.
