Xbox’s online gaming feature has been working perfectly to bring gamers from all around the world together, based on the games of their choice.
It’s fun and amazing making friends with people on the other side of the planet, and there are a number of people who have created lifelong friendships on platforms such as this one.

However, there are ways for you to isolate yourself from these types of people altogether, with the optimal solution being blocking these users.
Xbox allows its users to block and unblock other users, which is helpful in cases of getting spam messages, or being contacted by fake profiles who might also be scammers.

Blocking and unblocking can also be done from the Xbox app, which is available for both iOS and Android users.
