Can you block a Facebook friend from seeing your posts even if you tag them in it?

My boyfriend is going through some drama with someone he thought was his friend. It’s a long story, but basically she’s going around and lying and saying they’re together. He gets mad because I see stuff she tags him in, but he says he cannot see it at all, and he has to log into my account to see it.

Is that possible? I am not that savvy with computers or facebook really for that matter when it comes to all the privacy settings, my boyfriend had to setup all mine when this girl started hacking into my account. But, yea, I just want to know how she’s doing this?

    No, you can't block them if you tag them. He and his friends can see the post.

    it's like this., if the person has customized her privacy level, there can be a place where he cannot see the posts that she tags him. a notification will popup that he has been tagged bt when he try to view it, the content won't be available.

      Okay, that makes sense. It's dumb, but it makes sense. Thanks for your answer, I really appreciate it :)

    Thanks for the answers! I know for sure he had to log into my account to see it because I have it set up I get notified when someone logs into my account. He went onto my account to see what she's been saying, that's what I don't understand. If he could see it, he would have told me he could instead of going through my account to do so. I don't know, the whole thing is just confusing to me. He's been away at work a lot recently, so no facebook for him much right now, and that's why she's still doing this. I understand how to block someone when you're not friends with them, I just don't know how it works when you are friends with them and you put them on the restricted list. She's not my friend, the only reason I even see anything is since she tags him.

    So far as I know what your boyfriend says is happening is impossible. If you're tagged in a photo you can see it.

    If you tagged that person, than he can see it, for sure! But if you don't want him/her to watch your wall posts, likes, comments etc.., add him/her to the restricted list!

    It's not possible for that girl to tag your boyfriend without having to add him as a friend in her profile.Moreover,when your boyfriend gets tagged by anyone,he gets notifications for it and that photo gets posted in his timeline profile.

    So,if your boyfriend is not a friend with that girl in Facebook,then she had definitely hacked your account and is doing all such postings.She might had hacked your account by snooping into your Wi-Fi network or by simply guessing your password.

    Your immediate action must be resetting your password and add your mobile number to your account so that your Facebook account can be recovered in worst case scenarios.
