Unfollowing someone

Hi, how do I unfollow someone? Thanks in advance.

July 28, 2014



go to that person's profile and click on Following


Basically what 123cereza456 says. The button will then change to "Follow", giving you the option again to follow that user again.

If you want a user to stop posting on your stream or whatsoever, you can block the user by clicking on the "gear" icon on the upper right corner of their profile (it will say "Block [username]" and you will not be able to post on their stream or follow the user (unless you unblock them, which can be done by clicking on the same gear button and it will say "Unblock [username]":



Hi Syttamore and thank you for your answer. Actually, you're the reason I wanted to know. Not personal, actually the opposite. You're so helpful and so prolific on duo that I couldn't keep up with all your updates. Good luck with all your language learning!


Thank you so much! :)


Wait, but Duolingo updated, so how do I do it now??? :/


Same question The problem is when I try to go to their page I don't get their page, I get an error message https://www.duolingo.com/errors/404.html

Error 404 Sorry, the page you were looking for doesn’t exist. ] Try going to duolingo.com, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

It's supposed to be https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Stew197300

and since I can't get to their page, I can't click "unfollow"


I'm having this same problem with 2 friends of mine. I always get a 404 when I try to view their profile, and you have to be able to view their profile to click "unfollow"
