How to block someone on a WhatsApp group without them knowing:
You can’t block a user directly on a WhatsApp group. When you don’t want to see someone’s message on the WhatsApp group or want the user to stop messaging on the group, the only solution is to remove the user from the group. You can ask an admin to remove the person whose message you don’t want to see in the group.
You can block the user personally from your WhatsApp inbox to avoid getting private replies from the user. If you block the user on WhatsApp, no private message from the user will be delivered to you in your WhatsApp inbox. However, the text sent by the user in the group will be visible to you.
Another method you can consider is to create a new group without actually blocking the user or removing him from the old group. The person will not be able to know about the new group.
You need to add all the old members of the previous group except for that one member whose message you want to avoid and then start chatting in the new group. This will make the old group inactive automatically.
How to stop receiving messages from someone without blocking them:
When you want to stop receiving messages from someone without blocking the user directly, then three ways can help you to do that.
1. Archive the chat
You need to archive the chat of the user whose messages you don’t want to receive on your WhatsApp so that when the user sends messages to you on WhatsApp it doesn’t get visible in your main inbox directly.
Once you archive the chat, the new messages from the user would be hidden provided that you’ve enabled the settings for it on WhatsApp.
2. Change WhatsApp Account Number
Another shortcut method that you can use to avoid getting messages from someone without blocking the person is by changing your WhatsApp account.
If you use a new number for your WhatsApp account, then the user will not be able to send you messages anymore as he or she will not be able to know your new phone number.
Moreover, the trick you need to follow for this method is to delete the old account first and then open a new account with a new number.
Don’t directly change the phone number as if you do so then the user will automatically get to know about your new phone number.
3. Restrict user without blocking him
You can also consider restricting the user on WhatsApp. But you can’t use the original WhatsApp application to do that. You’ll need to use a mod version of the WhatsApp application to get the Restrict feature.
When you restrict someone it prevents the user from messaging you, checking your last seen, etc.
