How to Block a Number on Whatsapp

WhatsApp is a popular messaging app worldwide, and it’s an excellent way to stay in contact with friends and business associates overseas. There may come a time when you get unsolicited messages from random numbers. In that case, you probably want to block them. This guide will show you how to block a number from WhatsApp.

How to Block a Number on Whatsapp

To block a number on WhatsApp:

  1. Open WhatsApp on your mobile device.
  2. Go to the Chats tab.
  3. Select a message from the sender you’d like to block.
  4. Tap on their number or name at the top of the screen.
  5. Scroll down and select Block.

After blocking a contact, you should see a blue message that says, ‘You blocked this contact. Tap to unblock.” You can tap on that message to unblock the contact.

If you block someone’s phone number on your phone but not their WhatsApp, their call will be rejected but they can still message you inside WhatsApp. WhatsApp is a totally different application, so you’ll need to also block the contact inside WhatsApp, as well.
