You can choose who can connect with you on Google+ and who can see your posts. 

Block someone

If you don't want someone to be able connect with you on Google+, you can block them. When you block someone in Google+:

  • They won't be able to see anything you post after you block them, or comments you leave on other people's posts.
  • They won't be able to mention you in posts or comments on Google+, or comment on anything you've posted on Google+. 
  • You’ll be removed from each other's circles. They also won't be able to add you to circles.
  • If the person you block is an owner or moderator of a Community you belong to, they can still see and moderate your comments and posts.
  • When you block someone in Google+, the person will also be blocked in certain other Google services, such as Google Hangouts. Google+ blocks that affect Hangouts can also affect Google Voice.
  • You can see people you've blocked and unblock them using your Activity Log.
