If you’re an avid WhatsApp user, you might have encountered a situation where someone blocks your contact. This could be frustrating, especially if you need to convey important information to that person.
However, there is still a way to send WhatsApp messages to someone who has blocked you. In this article, we’ll explore how to do that and also discuss some signs that indicate if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp.
Sending WhatsApp Messages to Blocked Contacts
Firstly, it’s important to understand that once someone blocks your number, you won’t be able to send them a direct message or call them. However, you can still send them messages indirectly by using the group feature. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Create a new WhatsApp group.
Step 2: Add the person who blocked you and any other mutual contacts to the group.
Step 3: Send your message in the group, addressing it to the person who blocked you.
It’s worth noting that this method only works if the person who blocked you is still a member of the group. If they have left the group, this method won’t be effective.
Signs that You’ve Been Blocked on WhatsApp
If you suspect that someone has blocked you on WhatsApp, here are some signs to look out for:
- No Profile Photo: If you can’t see the person’s profile picture, they might have blocked you. Alternatively, your number might not be saved in their contacts.
- One Tick Only: If you’ve sent a message to someone and you only see one tick, this could indicate that they have blocked you. However, it’s worth noting that this could also happen if the person is not connected to the internet.
- Last Seen Status: If you can’t see the person’s last seen status, they might have blocked you. However, this could also be due to them disabling this feature in their settings.
- Unable to Call: If you try to call someone on WhatsApp and it just says “calling” instead of “ringing”, this could mean that you’ve been blocked. However, it could also be because the person doesn’t have a data plan.
- Can’t View Their Status: If you can’t see someone’s status updates, they might have blocked you. However, they could have also set their privacy settings to only show their status to certain people.
- Can’t Invite Them to Groups: If you try to add someone to a WhatsApp group and you’re unable to do so, this could indicate that they’ve blocked you.
