What does it mean to block a user?
A blocked user is a member of your tree that you do not want viewing your information. If you add a user to your block list (on your Settings page) they will no longer be able to view your profile, your photo albums, or any of your profile information, such as your birthday, anniversary, current location, and birthplace. We will also remove these people from your calendar, map, and family photo albums, but you will continue to be able to see their profiles.
When a person you have blocked attempts to view your profile they will see your Search Result.
