How to quickly tell if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps nowadays in Ghana and across the world. We use WhatsApp to stay in touch with family, friends, colleagues, etc. Whatsapp also has a host of rich features that take conversations to a whole new level. Although WhatsApp is here to help us communicate, sometimes, you just want to avoid talking to some people for this, WhatsApp has “the blocking feature”.

There comes a time when someone gets blocked on WhatsApp. It could be you.

Why do some people Block?

Blocking is useful when you want to avoid chatting with a person on WhatsApp. Sometimes, some people also want to avoid chatting with you. But how do you know when somebody blocks you?

If you’re using WhatsApp, you can easily tell that someone has blocked you since there are several indicators you can look for.

One of these is that you won’t be able to see the person’s “last seen” or “online” status in the chat window. However, some people do disable this feature, so it’s possible to remain friends with someone without seeing their “last seen” status.

If someone has blocked you, you won’t be able to call him nor see any changes he has made to his profile picture. You can still send him messages but, instead of seeing two checkmarks (one for the message sent and another for the message delivered), you’ll only see one check mark to indicate that your message has been sent.

The Fool Proof way to check if you have been blocked on WhatsApp

In order to verify that the person has really blocked you, use a friend’s (whose contact your suspect does not have) device to send a WhatsApp message to the person. If that message gets delivered (two checkmarks), then you really have been blocked.

It is always advisable to use this Fool Proof way because

  • People can hide or not use a profile photo, so you may think they have blocked you.
  • Some people can block you and your friends as well as your family members, It is always best to use a number he/she doesn’t have to test for “blocking”

Hopefully, next time you are blocked, you are able to notice early enough. However, be cautious. This is because anyone who does not have a profile photo, hidden his/her about and has failed to come online in a long time will exhibit “symptoms that he/she has blocked you”.

You could also create a group with the person and send a message after which you use the read indicator to check…

That’s true, but you risk the person asking you why you put him / her in a group. This guide is about silently verifying.
