NEW YORK: WhatsApp users, at times, may find themselves wondering if they have been blocked on the messaging application due to various reasons such as disagreements or objectionable content. Understanding the signs of being blocked can help users navigate such situations.
If your messages consistently show only one tick (indicating that the message has been sent) and never progress to two ticks (indicating that the message has been delivered), it could be a sign that you have been blocked. However, users should exercise caution, as this could also happen if the recipient’s phone is turned off or lacks network coverage.
If you attempt to add the person to a group and encounter difficulties, it might be an indication that you have been blocked.
If the person’s profile picture disappears or you are unable to view their WhatsApp status, it may suggest that you have been blocked.
Observing changes in the “Last Seen” information may provide additional clues, although this is not a definitive indicator. Users can adjust their privacy settings to hide their last seen information.
While these tricks can provide insights into whether someone has blocked you on WhatsApp, it’s important to note that they are not foolproof. Technical issues or privacy settings may also contribute to the observed changes.
