    BLOCKED OUT How do you know if someone blocked you on WhatsApp and is there a way to check?

    There some quick ways to check that will indicate if you have been blocked or not.
    • You can no longer see a contact’s last seen or online in the chat window – this appears under their name at the top of the screen
    • You do not see updates to a contact’s profile picture
    • Any messages sent to a contact who has blocked you will always show one tick – message sent – and never show a second tick – message delivered
    • Any calls you make to the number will not go through
      Although there is no definite way to know if a person has blocked you.
      Even if you block someone on WhatsApp, your past conversations will remain in your app.
      WhatsApp say this was made deliberately ambiguous in order to protect people’s privacy.
      What if someone’s picture disappears on WhatsApp?

      If a contact’s profile photo isn’t showing this is probably because they have either changed their privacy settings to “Nobody” or “My Contacts” and you are not saved as a contact in their phone.
