#1. Check the last seen:
This is often said that if someone from your contact list blocks you on WhatsApp that you are not able to see the last seen on his contact that was available before. This is more of the restriction that WhatsApp implement on all the blocked contact. So, if you are not able to see the last seen then that must be one of the indications to be blocked. But kindly take care of the fact that in WhatsApp there is more of the features of hiding the last seen used by a lot of people nowadays to secure their privacy. So, this is not the full proof indication for sure.
#2. Send messages:
There are chances that the person has blocked you but this cannot be fully assured using the last seen concept. For this, you can try sending a message to the contact that you think has blocked you. After the message is successfully been send try to see whether the sent messages show a single tick or double as if there is no double tick then it might be possible that you have been blocked. This method also demands a little patience so kindly wait for some time as many people switch their data often from time to time. But if the wait also does not provide any result and still only a single tick is seen then this normally indicates that messages are not even delivered and you are blocked by the particular person.
#3.Look for the profile photo:
If the profile pic of the person is not visible even by refreshing the app again and again then there may be direct chances that you are blocked.
In this either the old profile pic is available or nothing is shown. Just look and then assure. But there is one thing that must be kept in mind while using this method which is that WhatsApp provides its user with the ability to hide profile pic as well as status too. This is mainly done due to security reasons. Apart from this many people simply prefer not to keep any profile pic at all which is sometimes confusing.
#4. Try to make a call:
This method termed as one of the concrete methods to ensure that if you are been blocked by someone. As when you call someone on WhatsApp and they never pick the call. As if someone has blocked you, it is sure that the other person will not pick your phone as they would not receive any notification soon. Kindly ensure that this method is repeated a couple of time. Also, with that, you can try to add a particular person to a group. As in doing so, a message will pop up indicating that the person cannot be added to the group which will prove that you have been blocked and this is one of the security feature enables by WhatsApp on you.
