Block other players chat and hide from search

If someone is following you, you can stop this by excluding yourself from the Find a Player search feature. Follow the steps below depending on the device you're using:

Desktop
  1. Settings
  2. Account Details
  3. Check 'Hide from Search Feature'.
Mobile
  1. Tap on the account icon
  2. Settings
  3. Privacy
  4. Activate 'Remove Player From Search'

If someone is bothering you through chat, block their messages so they are no longer displayed.

Desktop

Right-click on the player's image, and select 'Block Chat'.

Mobile

From a mobile device, it's currently not possible to block the chat of individual players, but you can block everyone's chat:

Tap on the account icon → 'Settings' → 'Poker' → deactivate ‘Player messages’

Some players are simply trying to get a reaction from you. We recommend that you block their chat or ignore them as they will soon tire of the lack of response and move along.
