    How To Unblock Yourself On WhatsApp!


    WhatsApp is commonly used by most people to exchange messages and is perhaps the most used instant messaging platform in the world right now. WhatsApp enables users to communicate with friends and family with ease just by having their phone numbers. While this very much adds to the convenience of users, it also means that anyone with your phone number can contact you. While WhatsApp does come with a feature to block unnecessary conversations, it is possible to overcome this block using some workarounds.

    How to Unblock Yourself on WhatsApp

    Highlights of the Story

    • WhatsApp allows users to send and receive messages by just having the user mobile number.
    • This makes it extremely convenient to contact users and send messages but comes at the cost of getting messages from users we don’t want.
    • WhatsApp comes with a feature to block users you do not want to contact; luckily, there is a workaround to bypass this and continue texting.

    It is an openly accepted truth that most of us, if not all of us, have at least been in one situation when we sadly realise that we have been blocked from contacting a friend on WhatsApp.

    There are many ways to find out if you have been blocked on WhatsApp. For example, if your messages are not going through and are being stuck in sent or your calls to the user are not saying “Ringing” over an endured duration, they likely have blocked your friend on WhatsApp.

    Once the download is complete then tap on the open button and the WhatsApp messenger will open in the setup screen. You will need to accept the Terms and Conditions of WhatsApp and you will be prompted to set up a new account. When you have to input the necessary fields, you will then have to verify your phone number through an OTP sent as a text message. Your new account will then be unblocked from all the contacts who had previously blocked you on WhatsApp.

    Alternate Solution

    While the above-mentioned solution is pretty easy for most users and solves the problem, most users might not want to jeopardize their entire account just to be able to talk to one person. While the above method does work with a high level of confidence, it is important to know that using the Account Deletion method results in you being removed from every participating group on WhatsApp. You will need to request an Admin of each group to add you back to the group manually once you are removed.

    Alternatively, you can ask a mutual friend to create a group with you and the user who has blocked you, after this group is created your friend who is the mediator in this situation can leave the group allowing you and the other user to have a conversation despite being blocked. This will still prevent you from making calls to the other user but at least offers some medium of communication.


    WhatsApp is the most commonly used instant messaging application and has the most number of users on it when compared to the other platforms, this also means that it attracts a lot of attention from unwanted places. This also results in genuine users getting blocked by other users assuming it to be spam. 

    If for some reason you have been blocked by an important contact and it is of extreme importance for you to reach them and using the above workarounds can turn out to be very useful.
