No one has the right to harass you, either in the real world or online or virtually. It is your privacy and it must be in your hands to handle it as you see fit. Here's how to block a contact at WhatsApp in a few simple steps so they never bother you again.

1: Open WhatsApp's lockout settings

To do this, you must go to the general settings, and from there point to the 'Account' tab and then enter the privacy tab. From there you can finally access the contacts you currently have blocked:

Don't forget that it's the WhatsApp contactsnot the ones on your phone. Some of the numbers you have stored in your memory may not use the application, so they will not appear in the list.

2: Choose the contact you want to block

Once you're on the lockdown screen, the WhatsApp app itself will show you instructions for add contacts to the blacklist. It will in case you have it empty.

Just go to the top right of the screen, click on the icon that appears there and select which contact or contacts you want to prevent from talking to you.

Once we have selected that person, they will be removed from your WhatsApp, so will not be able to send you messages or view your status online.

It should be made clear that, since he cannot address us, it will not be long before he realises that he has been blocked. You will not be notified at the time of the blocking, but you will be able to deduct it by yourself.

We recommend you:  Installing WhatsApp in Google Chrome

3: Unlocking contact

In case you are performing a simple test or if you have regretted contact blocking on WhatsAppThe procedure is reversible.

To unlock a contact in WhatsApp, just go to the lock settings screen, click a couple of seconds on the contact you want to exclude from the list and select "Unlock to ..." in the floating window that will appear.

4: Set a complete block, WhatsApp and calls

If it is not enough for us to have the contact blocked on WhatsApp, mobile manufacturers offer the option of avoid receiving calls from the number we select. It is a functionality that takes different names: black list, block list and others.

To do this, on most smartphones you simply go to the address book and make a long press on the contact. In the case that a floating window with the option to add to the exclusion list does not appear, we can enter the editing screen of it and look for the option there.
