How can we view someone’s profile if they have blocked us?

In case someone has blocked you, you can ask a mutual friend to show you their profile. There might come a situation when you will not know that mutual friend personally. Try to get in touch with him/her and explain your reason for viewing the profile.
This is the easiest thing to do if you want to see the profile.
- Ask them to unblock you
Get in touch with the person who has blocked you and ask him/her to unblock you. This is again let you see their profile.
This will only work if they are willing to do so. In case you are the one who has blocked then you can unblock and see the profile. If you wish to block them again you will have to wait or 48 hours.
