How to know if you are been Blocked on WhatsApp

Today, we chat, send voice notes, even make video calls with our friends and family using WhatsApp.

The platform is extremely useful, and just like all messengers, it also offers a 'block' button, which people use to avoid spammers or contacts bothering them, say like an annoying ex.

Now, if you think someone may have blocked you, here are some ways to be sure.

Look at the tick of delivery : WhatsApp doesn't push 'blocking notifications', which means you can't really know when a user chose to block you.

However, you can use the delivery tick mark to assess the situation.

Just send a message and look at the tick next to it; if it turns into two, the message has been delivered and you're unblocked.

If not, there might be some bad news.

Profile view changes after blocking : In addition to undelivered messages, you can also look at profile changes.

When a person has blocked you, their display picture, status, about information (like 'Available, Busy, At the gym') will no longer be visible.

Using this trick is fairly simple as you can easily note when all the information of a person/contact disappears from your app. 

Other notable indications of blocking : To get further evidence, look at the availability of the contact in question on the chat window.

If they haven't blocked you, there's a good chance you'll see the 'online' or 'last seen' timestamp under their name.

However, if nothing like that appears for hours, they might have blocked you or are not using WhatsApp (which might be rare for some). 

If blocked, WhatsApp calls don't go through : As one cannot make a WhatsApp voice call to a blocked contact, you can even try that. If the call doesn't go through or connect, you may have been blocked. But, if it rings, you might be in luck.

Try adding suspected contact into a group : Now, if the above-mentioned signs have left you with a bit of doubt, try adding the suspected contact into a WhatsApp group.

This is where you will get the final confirmation because WhatsApp would never allow you to add a contact that has blocked you.

It will simply give an error message saying "You are not authorized to add this contact".
