Checking If Someone Blocked You On WhatsApp
The first and easy way to find out if someone put you on his or her blocklist is to see the check ticks on your WhatsApp messages. If you have been using WhatsApp for a reasonable amount of time, you are already familiar with the check ticks that appear on your messages.
For those that are not yet familiar, here is how it works. For messages you sent and read for the past few days, they have two check ticks and on the color blue. While for the sent and received messages but not yet read, there will only be two checks but not in color blue.
Lastly, for those messages on WhatsApp that you sent but not received nor read, we will have one check. It means that the app is unable to deliver the message to the recipient. So that is one indication that you are on a blacklist. But that alone is not for sure because if the recipient’s phone is off, this can also happen.
Also, if you are on a person’s blacklist, you will not see under that person’s name if he or she is online or not. So if you want to find out more, go to the second method.
Check Profile Picture
If the first method raises your suspicion, this one will put another nail on your instinct. The next thing that you should be doing is to check that person’s profile picture.
If that person has blocked you, you are not supposed to be seeing his or her picture at all. But of course, you could be wrong with your assumption. First of all, the missing profile picture sometimes happens when you have a slow internet connection. So perhaps you should wait a little longer or try again later if it will appear or not.
The second thing is that it could be possible that the person removed his or her profile picture earlier. Although that is very unlikely, it could still be possible. You may try to ask a friend close to you to check a person’s profile picture. If his or her profile has photos on another person’s WhatsApp profile, then you are really in the blacklist.
Make an Audio/Video Call
Here is another way to check if you have been blocked on WhatsApp. Try calling the WhatsApp profile of that person. This could also fall along the lines of the first method. Being that the phone and app were offline or out of coverage area. But it can still help with your investigation.
If the recipient’s phone is not off, but you still can’t connect to the person’s WhatsApp profile that means you are on the blacklist from his or her account.
Add Profile to Group
The first three methods might have some loopholes, but this last one will seal any doubt that you are on someone’s WhatsApp blacklist. What you should do is create a group on WhatsApp. Add some friends that are okay with you creating a group with them.
If everything functions normally and that you can quickly add them to the group, then nothing is wrong with the connection or bug with the app. Now try the person that you suspect has blocked you. If an error message says that you do not have any authority to add that person, then you are blacklisted or blocked.
Just to be sure, try adding other people to the group again. This is to see that it is not a bug in the app. If it pushes through, then the app and its function to add to the group are doing alright.
Try adding the subject person again. And this time, if it still shows an error about some authorization issue, then you are unquestionably and 100% blocked on that person’s WhatsApp account.
If you confirmed that you had been blocked, try to be open-minded. It is offensive at some level, but still, you should try to be calm as much as possible. If you are not upset, you may try to talk to that person. Ask him or her what’s up. There should be a good reason why he or she blocked you.
