How to check if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp

The meta-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has become a huge part of our lives and an easy way to call and message people around the world for free.

But it’s important to stay alert and know the warning signs of an in-app scam.

It’s easy to be fooled online – users have been warned about a malicious link to an app that claims to turn WhatsApp pink.

With all the dangers online, platforms like WhatsApp offer the ability to block people, but what if you think this has happened to you?

If you’re fearing the worst, there are a few ways to check if it was you.

Here are also ways to find out if you’ve been blocked on Facebook.

There’s no direct way to check if you’ve been blocked on WhatsApp, and you won’t get a notification when this happens.

However, if you do this, you will no longer be able to see the contact’s “Last Seen” indicator or online status in the chat window.

There are other reasons why this could happen, so it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve been blocked.

Comparing how their profile appears to someone else’s handset can give you a clue.

If you send messages to someone who has blocked you, they’ll be marked as sent but not delivered, and any calls you’ve made will not go through.

However, this can also be caused by a person simply not having an internet connection.

Again, it’s an easy way to compare the status of your sent message with someone else who has also sent a message to the contact.

Of course, it’s possible that you’ve both been blocked, in which case you won’t be able to tell.

It’s also worth considering why the person blocked you in the first place.

If you have harassed or abused someone, you should stop contacting them.

You can report harassment, malicious messages, or the dissemination of private sexual images without consent online or call the police on 101.

How to block someone on WhatsApp

If you want to block someone on WhatsApp, you just have to follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the WhatsApp chat with the contact you want to block.
  2. Then click on the name at the top of the chat.
  3. Scroll down and you should have the option to “block” or “report” them.
  4. Select it and then select “Lock”.

What if someone’s picture on WhatsApp disappears?

If you are blocked, you will no longer be able to see their profile picture.

However, this could simply mean that they have removed their picture and currently don’t have one either.

It could also be the result of a connection issue.

This also happens if the contact has changed their privacy settings to ‘Nobody’ or if you have changed your own last seen privacy settings to ‘Nobody’.
