How to View Invisible People on AIM

Save

AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is a program that allows you to have online conversations. One of the features of AIM is to let you be "invisible." Being invisible prevents other chat buddies from seeing you on their buddy lists. However, there are ways to see if someone is invisible. You can detect invisible buddies using AIM, or by using a website called BlockStatus.com.

Using AIM

  • Sign into AIM using your screen name and password.

  • Click the "Info" button at the bottom of your buddy list.

  • Type in the screen name of the person whose "invisibility" you want to check.

  • Click "OK." If the individual is online, the box will show the amount of time they have been online even if they are invisible.

  • Instant-message them and if they respond, you will know they are online.
