Whatsapp is a top-rated messaging app used worldwide. If you've recently realized that someone on WhatsApp seems to have gone silent, you may want to determine whether this person has blocked you. There are a couple of ways to find out if someone on Whatsapp has blocked you.
Whatsapp wants users to maintain their privacy, so there isn't an official way to tell if someone blocked you. However, there are a few things you can do that would indicate someone blocked you on WhatsApp.
If a person blocks you on WhatsApp, you can't see their "Last seen" time. The last seen time tells you when your contact last came online on WhatsApp. This feature provides you with a clue that someone has blocked you. Follow these simple steps to check the last seen time.
1. Open WhatsApp on your phone and make sure you are on the chats tab.
2. Open the conversation of the person you think has blocked you. You should see the last seen time under the name of your contact. If you can't see a time, the contact may have blocked you. However, WhatsApp does give users the option to hide their last seen time.
You can also look at WhatsApp Profile Picture. If the profile picture hasn't been updated recently or appears to have disappeared, the person may have blocked you.
If you have a friend in common with the person you think has blocked you, you may like to compare profile pictures with them. If the photos are different, this may mean the contact has blocked you.
To learn whether someone put you on their blocked list, send a WhatsApp Message to your contact. You'll then see from the checkmarks that appear on sent messages whether or not the person has received your message.
On Whatsapp, the first checkmark shows that you have sent your message. The second checkmark will appear when the recipient's phone has received your message. Two checkmarks would indicate that the contact hasn't blocked you. You should then keep an eye on the checkmarks; if they turn blue, your recipient has seen your message.
If you only see one checkmark, this would indicate that the contact has blocked you. You may also like to try making a WhatsApp call to your contact. If someone has blocked you, they won't see that you're ringing and won't answer your call.
If you have any questions or complaints about WhatsApp, contact the customer service team. You can contact a Whatsapp representative either by email, phone, or via live chat.
