There are a couple of ways that you can block someone on WhatsApp without them knowing.
If you have their contact information saved in your address book, you can go to your WhatsApp settings and tap on the “Blocked Contacts” option. From here, you can add the person’s name or phone number to your blocked list.
Alternatively, if you don’t have the person’s contact information saved, you can still block them by going to your chat history with them and tapping on the three dots in the top right-hand corner. Select “Block Contact” from the drop-down menu and confirm that you want to block this person.
How do I appear offline when I am online on WhatsApp?
There are a couple of ways to appear offline when you’re online on WhatsApp. One way is to go to the main WhatsApp screen, and then tap on the three dots in the top-right corner. From there, select “settings” and then “account.” Under “privacy,” you’ll be able to toggle “online status” to off.
Another way is to open WhatsApp and then press the phone icon in the top-left corner. From there, select your name and then toggle “show my status” to off.
What is the difference between mute and block on WhatsApp?
The primary difference between muting and blocking someone on WhatsApp is that, when you mute someone, they can still see your messages but will not be notified of them, while if you block someone, they will not be able to see your messages at all. Muting is thus useful if you want to avoid notification spam from someone without them necessarily knowing it while blocking is useful if you want to completely ignore and hide all communications from that person.
There are also a few key complications with each option: for example, blocking prevents you from being able to see the other person’s updates in group chats, while muting does not.
When you block someone on WhatsApp do they know?
It depends on how you’ve blocked the person. If you’ve merely muted them, they will not be notified. However, if you’ve blocked them completely, they will be notified the next time they try to contact you and will no longer be able to see your profile photo, status updates, or call you.
How do I block someone on WhatsApp without seeing their messages?
You can block someone on WhatsApp without seeing their messages by opening the chat with that person and tapping on their profile picture. This will open a pop-up menu from which you can select “Block.” Alternatively, you can tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the chat window and select “Block” from there. Once you have blocked someone, they will no longer be able to contact you on WhatsApp. They will also not be able to see your profile or view your messages.
