How to Know If Someone Has Blocked You on Viber

1. Check the Person's Status or Profile Picture

If someone blocked you on Viber, his/her status or profile picture will not update any more. Thus the most straightforward way is to check their profile images or account status.

Chances are that you may be blocked from the person's Viber contact list if the status or profile photos are not updated finally. It is not 100% confirmed, though.

  • Open the Viber app and check if the person’s profile picture remains the same. If the person has blocked you on Viber, the profile picture will not get changed.
  • To confirm this, you can use a different Viber number to add this contact.
  • When you check the profile picture again, you may find that the profile has changed. This means that you have been blocked on Viber.
