You might be aware of the blocking feature in WhatsApp wherein users can block contacts or other users. Are you curious to know if someone blocked you on WhatsApp?
If that is the case then definitely this WhatsApp block checker list at TechUntold will answer most of your questions. We will help you figure out if you have been blocked on WhatsApp.
Let’s dive in!
Check If Someone Blocked You On WhatsApp
If for a particular WhatsApp contact you observe the following things mentioned below then it signals that you have been blocked by that contact on WhatsApp.
1. Firstly, go to that contact on WhatsApp whom you suspect has blocked you on WhatsApp. Try viewing the time that comes below the name of that contact at the top of the conversation as shown in the screenshot below.
You will not be able to see this person’s time information if the contact is not online at that moment. Also, the ‘Online’ status won’t be visible even if the contact is online at that particular time.
However, keep in mind that the person in interest can always hide their Last Seen status (here’s how it is done).
2. You won’t be able to see that WhatsApp contact’s profile picture if he/she has blocked you.
3. Moreover, you will also not be able to view the ‘About‘ of that WhatsApp contacts.
4. You can’t see any changes in the profile of that person. The 24-hour status or WhatsApp stories will be visible to you only if they uploaded them before blocking you. Their new statuses won’t be visible to you.
5. If someone has blocked you on WhatsApp then the messages you send won’t be delivered to that contact (among other things). This means that any message you send will have only one grey tick forever. You won’t see double or blue ticks for newly sent messages.
Note: The messages you sent to that contact in the period when you were blocked by that contact won’t be delivered even if that WhatsApp contact removes you from their blocked list in the future.
6. You will not be able to make WhatsApp calls or video calls to that contact. It will say ‘Calling‘ when you place the call from your WhatsApp account and will never switch to ‘Ringing‘. The user who has blocked you will never receive any call at their end.
How Do You Know If Someone Blocked You On WhatsApp Or It’s Just Privacy Settings?
All the things in the above points are possible even if they haven’t blocked you.
They might have uninstalled their WhatsApp after applying all the privacy. So, you can try adding them to a new group or a group that already exists.
If the person has really blocked you, then you will not be able to add them. When you try, the pop-up says ‘Couldn’t add XYZ’.
If you notice all of the above for a particular WhatsApp contact then there is a high possibility that WhatsApp contact has blocked you. You also won’t get any notifications for this contact.
There is no way to check directly which contacts have blocked you.
WhatsApp has implemented it like this on purpose keeping in mind your privacy when you block someone. Having said that if all of the above qualifies then you can almost be sure that WhatsApp contact has blocked you.
Bonus Tip: Know If Someone Deleted Your Number On WhatsApp (Android/iPhone)
This procedure does not require any third-party apps. We will use the broadcast feature of WhatsApp to find if somebody has your contact number saved on WhatsApp or not. This tweak works for Android as well as for iPhone.
- Open WhatsApp and create a Broadcast list.
- Add the contact in the broadcast list whom you want to check if they have saved your number or not. You have to select at least a couple of numbers to create a broadcast list. Add any of your friends to create the list.
- Now send any message, could be a funny message or any other in the list.
- Next, come out of the broadcast list and send a message separately to that particular contact whom you want to check if he/she has saved your number on the WhatsApp contact list or not.
- Now see if the message sent by you through broadcast is having a single tick and the message sent separately is having a double tick. If this is the case, then your contact has deleted you on WhatsApp.
If the broadcast message and the message sent by you separately are both having double tick then the contact has your number already stored on their WhatsApp contact list.
- If both the messages are having a single tick, then wait for few hours as he/she might have turned off the internet connection.
- Checking after long hours still if you see the single tick for the message sent separately(without broadcast), then you need to check if the contact has blocked you on WhatsApp or not.
The broadcast messages are sent to only those who have saved your contact on their WhatsApp contact list. By this, you can easily figure out if someone has deleted you on WhatsApp or not.
