WhatsApp is the go-to instant messaging app that allows people all over the world to communicate with one another. While the messaging app is a convenient way for users to connect with friends, family, and new acquaintances, it can also be a source of unwanted contacts and privacy violations. You can stop receiving messages, calls, and status updates from certain contacts by blocking them. You can also report them if you think they are sending problematic content or spam.

Here is how WhatsApp allows you to block a contact or a number from further communicating with you.

Blocked contacts will no longer be able to call you or send you messages. Your last seen, online, status updates, and any changes made to your profile photo will no longer be visible to contacts you’ve blocked. Blocking a contact won’t remove them from your contacts list, nor will it remove you from the list on the contact’s phone. To delete a contact, you must delete the contact from your phone’s address book.Block a contactOpen WhatsApp, tap More options > Settings. Tap Account > Privacy > Blocked contacts.
