✎ Key Takes:
» You can find the status of your WhatsApp message by the number of ticks displayed: one tick signifies the message is on its way, while two ticks indicate delivery to the recipient’s device.
» Also, take the absence of notifications, a blank DP, or unresponsiveness as cues, but note that a blank DP might also result from your number not being saved.
» If you think being blocked, confirm by verifying notifications, a blank DP, or check if your number is saved by the person in question.

How To Know If Someone Blocked You On WhatsApp:
WhatsApp offers numerous ways that can provide you with information or let you know if a user blocks you.
There are some techniques that you can use to find out if you’re blocked, those are mentioned below:
1. Seeing their WhatsApp DP
DP refers to the profile picture the user sets in his or her profile as a mode of identification, perhaps if it is not hidden from you.
One of the ways how you could know if a user has blocked you on WhatsApp is that their profile picture won’t be visible to you and you won’t have access to view their WhatsApp stories.
It may also happen that the user has changed their privacy settings or profile picture.
2. No More WhatsApp Status Update
Another very efficient indicator to know if you are blocked is, that their WhatsApp status update will no longer be accessible to you and it might happen that all of a sudden you are unable to notice the updates of statuses of the particular user on WhatsApp.
Now again this is not the only basis for why the status updates aren’t visible to you anymore. Sometimes certain users make changes to their privacy settings for status updates and there are three options available to the users are, ”My contacts”, ”My contacts except”, ”Only share with”.
Also if the user has blocked you, in that case, your status updates won’t be seen by the concerned user anymore and you can always find the particular name from the seen list of your updates.
3. There won’t be any last seen Available
This is another indicator to know if you are blocked. The online status won’t be ever available to you if the user has blocked you or the last seen.
Now the last seen details would not be appearing again for three alternatives provided in the privacy section of WhatsApp for every user, that is, “Everyone”, “Nobody”, and “My contacts”.
Opening the user’s profile if you find that the user never shows online, nor any profile information, and only the number appears then be determined to accept, that the user has probably blocked you.
You can always remind yourself about the last instance where you spoke to the person and their online status was available but not anymore.
