WhatsApp, a widely used messaging app owned by Meta, is one of the most popular messaging apps worldwide.

It offers a variety of features that make communication easy. If you are wondering whether someone has blocked you on WhatsApp, there are a few indicators to look for.

No Access to Profile Information

When someone blocks you, you will not be able to see their ‘Last Seen’ status, profile pictures, or profile bio. This is because WhatsApp values user privacy, and these details are hidden for blocked contacts.

Message Status

When you send a message to a blocked contact, you will notice that the message only shows a single gray checkmark instead of the double blue checkmarks. The absence of the double checkmarks indicates that the message has not been delivered to the blocked person.

Voice Calls

You can also try calling the person on WhatsApp. If it just says ‘Calling,’ it is possible that the person has blocked you. On the other hand, if it shows ‘Ringing,’ it's a good sign that they have not blocked you.

Keep in mind that these signs are not foolproof evidence of being blocked. Sometimes, people disable their ‘Last Seen’ and online status, or they may have connectivity issues.

However, if you observe multiple of these signs for the same contact, it becomes more likely that they have indeed blocked you.
