WhatsApp is an application that we can not do without. The Facebook messaging service indeed facilitates our exchanges with our loved ones with functions that are each just as useful as the next. Beyond voice calls and messages, WhatsApp allows us to send voice notes, organize video calls, and make our chats more fun with stickers.
However, WhatsApp also comes with a few small drawbacks. Apart from scammers who eye our personal data, we are also exposed to unwanted messages. Fortunately, the app has a feature that allows you to block people with whom we no longer wish to be in contact.
Whether you have an iPhone or a device running Android, you can use this option.
Easily block someone on iOS
To block someone on iOS, you will need to enter the chat you had with them and click on the part where their name appears. You will be redirected to a window leading to this contact’s information. When you scroll down, you will see the option “Block this contact.” Then you just have to tap on it and the app will ask if you really want to block it. After confirmation, you will no longer receive his messages.
Another trick is to enter the settings, in “Account”, then in “Confidentiality” and scroll to the option “Blocked contacts.” »You will then have to press the option« Add new… », then enter the name of the contact you want to block and you’re done.
Blocking also works on Android
Even if the procedure to follow is not identical, the blocking also works on Android. To do this, you will have to go into your chat with the person you want to block and press the three vertical dots which are at the top right of the screen.
Once this is done, you will see a list of suggestions appear with the option “More.” »After pressing this function, you can choose to block this contact. You can also block this person by going to “Settings”, “Account”, “Privacy” and “Blocked contacts.” “
