Surely more than once you have wanted to block one of your WhatsApp contacts so that you do not have to continue supporting their messages at all hours or simply because the relationship between the two has come to an end. In this article we are going to show you how these locks are made and you will see that it is not complicated at all for the great benefits that it can offer us.
These are the steps we must follow to block a contact:
First of all, it is clear that we must enter our WhatsApp. Now that we have it open we go to the menu that appears in the upper right corner, the one with three vertical dots. We click on this menu and several options appear. One of them is ” Settings “, which is the one we must select.
Now we are in the “Settings” menu of our account and we must go to the ” Account ” option by clicking on it. Among the new options we have there is one that says ” Privacy ” which is what we must select now.
We are now in the section where we can control everything related to the privacy of our WhatsApp account. Among all the options that appear in its menu there is one that says ” Contacts blocked ” which is the one that interests us. We click on it and we are closer to being able to block our contacts.
Now on the ” Blocked Contacts ” screen we will see the contacts that we are blocking with their photo, name and phone number. An icon with the ” + ” symbol appears in the upper left corner, which is the one we must click to add new contacts to be blocked to the list. We click on it and we will see that a list appears with all our WhatsApp contacts .
The only thing left is to click on the contact that we want to block and we will automatically have it on our blocked list.
From this moment when we enter WhatsApp and see our contacts, in the blocked ones we will check how they appear in a lighter tone than the rest , also indicating that the contact is blocked and that if we want to admit it again we just have to click on it.
