How do I remove Followers?

Before I set my privacy settings to approve followers request. I got some followers from the far east/Bloody annoying seeing the pop up on my followers list. These berks have thousands of followers and following. some sort of special berk activity collecting as many following or followers as possible.

Question? How do I get rid of them? I saw a post that said that if you follow them then unfollow them you can delete them - it doesn’t work.

Nasty privacy hole in my opinion. help please…


In the companion app, go to your profile. Then click on your followers list. Click on the one you want to remove and then in the top right click the 3 dots and choose remove follower. That’s on Android - may be different on IOS.

Thank you, very much i eventually found it.

It really ought to be easier, not obvious and not intuitive.
