With so many of our family and friends registered on Whatsapp, you might be receiving a lot of messages or being added by people that you do not even know. You might even be receiving messages from scammers, which have also made Whatsapp users their target and can kill the joy and breeze of using the application itself. Then in this situation, there is a need to block some contacts, so you will not receive any more messages from them. We will teach you how the steps to be able to block a contact on Whatsapp for both Android and IOS phone users.

Part 5: How to unblock someone on WhatsApp for iPhone and Android?

When you do decide to block a friend or family on Whatsapp, they will not receive any notifications or be alerted that you have blocked them. They will not see any of your “Last Seen Status” when they click on your chat page. Another indicator is that they will not be able to add you in a group chat and it will show that they failed to add you. They are able to send a message out a message but will not be successful in delivering it to you which will show as 1 tick only in your message instead of the 2 ticks. They cannot also make a phone call with your number and will not be able to hear any ringtone when they try to make a call.
If you want to know more on how to know on how to find out what happens if the contact has been blocked, you can read more in our article, “How to Check if You're Blocked on WhatsApp”.
Now that you are already aware of what happens when you block a contact on Whatsapp, you must be wondering how to actually block a contact on Whatsapp. It is a good thing that blocking someone on Whatsapp is very easy to do. For example, you can block a contact that is already added to your contacts list or even a certain mobile number that you prefer. Let us have a look and we will show you the steps to block anyone for both Android and IOS phone users.
Option 1: Blocking a contact using Android Phone
Option 2: Blocking a contact using IOS iPhone
As we have mentioned at the beginning of the article, Whatsapp is also a target of a lot of scammers and if you want to block an unknown number that messaged you, that is possible on Whatsapp and the steps are also easy to follow. Read on the steps below to block an unknown number of Android and iPhone mobile users who are very similar.
Option 1: Blocking an Unknown Number in Whatsapp using Android Phone
Option 2: Blocking an Unknown Number in Whatsapp using IOS iPhone
It is also very important that unknown numbers that message us are blocked to also keep our privacy and security when using Whatsapp’s platform. Our data is very important and keeping it safe should be our utmost priority you can read more about data privacy in our article, “Data Privacy Day 2022: A Complete Guide to Web-Based Mobile Phone Privacy and Solutions”.
If you are in a group chat with someone you blocked, they are still able to see the messages you sent and they sent in the group. They also still cannot see your profile or any status that you have. However, if you make a group phone in that group chat, they will not be able to receive a notification or be included in the group call at all.
If you really want them out of the group chat, the best way to make sure that the blocked person is not in the group chat is to ask the admin to remove them as you are not able to do anything if you are not the admin of that group.
You probably changed your mind and want to unblock that contact that you previously blocked. You can also do that in just a few steps.
Option 1: Unblocking a Contact in Whatsapp using Android Phone
Option 2: Unblocking a Contact in Whatsapp using IOS iPhone
When using Whatsapp, we might get caught up with all the messages that we receive and at some point, even delete some of them as they can take up space in your phone’s storage. But then you realized you deleted the wrong chat and wanted to restore it. You can do that in just a few steps.
You might also receive messages that you want to keep for yourself or if there is important information that you need to remember in the future, you would want to have that file stored somewhere. You can use one of the best software for backing up your phone data to your computer, “MobileTrans - Backup & Restore”.

In this world of constant communication and notifications that we receive, it is good to give yourself some peace of mind by just blocking a few contacts and keeping in touch with the ones that matter the most. We do not have to be available to everyone all the time as we also need to give ourselves a break from the constant messaging. Once you feel you have recharged and want to get in touch with others again, you can just unblock them and maintain the relationship.
