Figuring out ways to know if you’ve been blocked on WhatsApp? Worry no more, here are some tips on how to. WhatsApp allows users to block contacts that they do not wish to receive messages. One can as well see the contacts he/she has blocked. Nevertheless, things are not the same on the other side because a user cannot see the contact which has blocked them. Due to some privacy reasons, WhatsApp does not reveal connections that have blocked the user. However, there are a couple of ways that can sort to confirm if you have been blocked.
1. Not able to see last seen or online status in the chat window.
This is the first method to know if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp though it may also be a result of someone changing their last seen setting. But, the possibility still exists that they may have blocked you.
2. Checking for profile photo
If a person has blocked you on WhatsApp, you may not see their updated profile picture, or sometimes you may not see their profiles.
3. Sending a message to the contact
If you have been blocked on WhatsApp and try to send the contact a message, it will just single-tick. Even when the contact is online, no delivery update or double checkmark is visible on your side. Therefore, if you see single ticks on every message you have sent, know you have been blocked.
4. You cannot add the user to a WhatsApp group.
If you create a group and try adding contacts on your phonebook to the group, and you see this message, 'You are not authorized to add this contact,' then you have been blocked by a particular contact.
5. All calls attempted not to go through.
Any call from a blocked contact does not go through. I any call you place on contact is not going through, or you may not be able to see a calling message when you are placing the call, there are high chances that you have been blocked by the contact. However, this may also result from a poor internet connection.
