How To Know If Someone Muted You On Signal

Key Points:

» If the message gets only one single tick, move to another Signal account and send a message from that account to the same person.
» If the message gets a double tick (either filled or not, it does not matter) then this means you’re blocked.

How To Know If Someone Muted You On Signal:

To tell if someone muted you or not you can try the following methods below:

1. He is Online but Doesn’t Reply

If you want to know if someone has muted you on Signal or not, you’ll need to take the clues available.

When you find that the user is online but is not responding to your message, then there is a good chance that he has muted you on Signal.

As messages are not shown in pop-ups when you’re on mute, he won’t be bothered to see or check it until he wishes to do so.

2. He Doesn’t Get Notifications

When someone has muted you on Signal, the user doesn’t receive any kind of notification for your text. Mute is done to prevent disturbing or unwanted notifications of messages.

If he has muted you, the user won’t get notified about your message in the top panel, which is why you might not get his reply on time. He can only know about your message after he opens the Signal app.

When You Block Someone On Signal What Do They See:

You can try the following methods below to know if someone blocked you on Signal:

1. The DP is Not Visible

If someone blocked your number on the Signal app, you will not receive any notification saying that your account is blocked by any of your contacts.

Though you do not receive any such notification, there are ways where you can guess that your number has been blocked and one of those is the visibility of their display picture (DP).

If someone has blocked you, the signal app will prevent you from viewing their DP.

The DP not being visible is one of the indicators for you that you have been blocked. But this can only be taken into account when the person has put up a DP to their account.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Open your Signal account.

Step 2: Open the chat window of the person you suspect has blocked you and then tap on their name to view their profile photo.

If you do not see any DP, it means that you have been blocked by that person.

2. Your messages are not sent

A filled double-check mark indicates that the recipient has read your message.

If you do not see such, then your number is blocked, however, this should be applied only when your read recipient is on.

3. You Won’t See Typing

Although, if someone blocks you, he would not ever type you again, if you’re wondering what happens after this, then this point is a little important as a piece of knowledge.

The third possible indicator to know if you have been blocked on the signal app is the typing indicator. Usually while chatting with an online person, you can see this typing indicator whenever the person types any text or message on his keyboard with your chat window open.

So if you are blocked by someone, you will surely not be able to see the typing indicator on your screen.

But to finally conclude on this point, make sure your typing indicator is toggled on from your ‘Settings’ under ‘Privacy’.

To confirm you can follow these steps:

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Open your Signal account and then open the chat window of the person you want to know who has blocked you.

Step 2: Make sure your typing indicator is on from your settings, and type a message. Now, wait for the person to type and reply to your message.

Step 3: If you can’t see the typing indicator, you can conclude that you have been blocked.

Does One Tick On Signal Mean Blocked?

You can also know by the type of checkmark on your sent messages that you have been blocked or not on the signal App. If your number has been blocked by someone on the signal app, the messages you send to that person will show just one single checkmark. The checkmarks show you the status of your sent messages.

A single checkmark indicates that your message has been sent to the service center of the signal app. If this does not turn into a double checkmark, it means that your sent message is still not delivered to the desired person.

If you see a single checkmark, you need not worry about your data connectivity. You are probably seeing this only because you have been blocked by the person you sent the message.

If your data connectivity is proper and still you see this single checkmark, you can believe that your number has been blocked by someone on the Signal app.
