I got an email alert that someone I didn’t invite accepted my email invitation to connect. What happened?

Someone I don’t know is trying to connect with me, can I block them?

I got an email alert that someone I didn’t invite accepted my email invitation to connect. What happened?

It is possible for your friend or family member to accept your invitation to connect using different email address to the one you originally sent the invite to, if they have another address that they prefer to use. Check whether the connection in your account is someone you know, if not it is possible you entered the email address incorrectly and inadvertently invited the wrong recipient, simply remove the connection if you do not wish to share your content with them. 

 

 

 

 

 

Someone I don’t know is trying to connect with me, can I block them?

By ignoring the invitation to connect you are preventing them from accessing any of your posts and uploads.

If I delete a connection, will that person be notified that I've removed them?

When you remove a connection on 23snaps, that person will not be notified that the connection has been deleted. However, they will no longer have access to your content, so it is likely they will eventually notice that you are no longer connected.
