Although the internet has brought people together and altered the communication system all over the world, it has brought certain problems along with it as well. Cyber crimes have increased at a rapid rate and stalking has taken a great leap. Earlier the problem was limited to the world wide web – in various social media sites (Facebook, Twitter and so on) and chat rooms. Now it has descended to the various social messaging sites as well like Whatsapp, Viber, WeChat and others.

However, since, the social messaging sites are modelled on the social media sites, there are ways by which one can keep unwanted people at bay. On the social media sites, profile can be deleted from friend lists or even blocked. Similarly, Whatsapp gives you the option to block contacts whom you find unwanted or disturbing. The blocked contact would not be able to send you message, see your profile picture or even view your status. Follow these simple steps below and see how to block your whatsapp contact:

  • Firstly, open your Whatsapp messenger and go to the contact list of your whatsapp messenger.
  • Secondly, select the contact whom you feel is unwanted and has to be blocked.
  • Thirdly, open the contact that you have selected. You will see three dots on the top right hand side of the screen. Tap there. The ‘more’ option has to be selected next. The first option is ‘block’ which has to be selected next.
  • Ones they are block they wouldn’t be able to see your any activity including whatsapp status

These three simple steps can help you block any unwanted contact on Whatsapp and let you live in peace. More or less, these steps are the same for every mobile. However, there are slight differences as they vary from model to model. Sony is slightly different from Samsung and so on.

Oftentimes, you might get messages on your Whatsapp from different unknown number. When such a message appears on screen, there are two options on the top – ‘add to contacts’ and ‘block’. If you think that the person is disturbing you and wish to block the contact right away then just tap the ‘block’ option.

Just as you can block someone on Whatsapp, you can also unblock contacts there. If you feel to re-add contacts to your list then simply visit your blocked profile list and unblock the contact. Thus, simply follow the above steps and keep unwanted, disturbing people at a distance.
