How to Tell if Someone Blocked You on WhatsApp in 2021

At some time, you may want to make sure if someone blocked you on WhatsApp when you have no contact with someone for a long time, or in other cases, you hurt someone's sensibility by what you said. If you are exactly in the case, today's post will guide you on how to know if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp.

Part 1. How to Know If Someone Has Blocked You on WhatsApp

Way 1. Check the contact profile picture

The blacklister's profile picture will not change if he or she blocks you on WhatsApp. In other word, you cannot find any update on the profile pictures of the blacklister. Compared to other tips, it is the most straightforward one. And if you want to take this approach, just find a mutual friend of you and the person who may block you to verify it. But this indication is not completely accurate as the person may have changed the Privacy to Nobody, which means that no one can view any update of his or her info.

Way 2. Check the number of check ticks

Send a message to the person that you need to verify. Chances are that you may have been in the WhatsApp block list if the message only shows one tick rather than two ticks or or colored blue ticks. It means that the message has been sent but never been delivered.

Way 3. Verify whether you can pay for the person on WhatsApp

1. Open up WhatsApp on your iPhone, go to Options and click on "View Contact".

2. Click the option of "Pay for" from the View Contact Menu. If your friend has not blocked you on WhatsApp, just neglect this way. Or you will get a message of "XX is not able to receive a service extension from you, but thanks for trying to help your friend". Obviously, this message indicates that this person has put you in the block list.
