Messages are a great way to start a one-on-one conversation with another member of the TripAdvisor community. There are several ways for you to control the messages you send and receive.
- Blocking/unblocking members: Blocking prevents a member from sending messages to you and vice versa. If a member you blocked tries to send you a message, they will see a notice that you are not accepting messages at this time. To learn more, please see our instructions.
- Notifications: When you have a new message, we will notify you via email and at the top of the TripAdvisor page you are viewing. You can turn off e-mail notifications if you do not wish to receive them.
If you prefer not to receive messages, you can turn them off at any time.
