How to block xAP
Tue, 08-21-2012 - 7:10pm

Tried finding it, but couldn't. Can someone provide a list of how to block all forms of communication? I am ready to do it. So I need to block him from:

- Phone # (I have an iPhone if that matters). He could also look up my work # but he's never used it and wouldn't dare, but if I can block I will.

- Facebook - figured this out already.

- Email (he knows my work and one personal address)

- IM services (I figured this out easily)

- Any ways to hide/prevent me from seeing any of HIS info online, etc.?

- Pinterest (he doesn't follow me cuz I never OKed that, but can I hide my stuff from him? I wouldn't be surprised if he looks at mine and don't want him to cuz I am an active user and it's a keyhole into my world)


Thanks for any help. I will try to figure it out on my own but if there's already a list I'd love it in case I miss something.

Thanks, Kim...I had no idea that was in the H.L.

I looked at the Pinterest site - it says that you can't block people, unfortunately. I don't use the service - but is there something you could do with your privacy settings, maybe? Like Facebook, where you lock down all your info unless you've friended someone?

Red- I stayed off all social networking, as it was a huge trigger for me. As I got my footing in NC, I went back to a few, but still remain completely off FB, too many shared friends, etc.

Great job!!

I was just going to suggest that, Kim.  You beat me to it.  I just found that the other day, very helpful.
