Now moving on to the next top concern of the youth today is “How to know if someone blocked me on messenger without messaging them?” Let’s quickly hop on to that.

How to know if someone blocked me on messenger without messaging them?

After doing a ton of research on the facts & myths of the concerned topic on & off the internet. It occurred to me that Facebook Messenger, for the sake of privacy, does not make it crystal clear when one has been blocked. So, you never really know whether the person has blocked you or just deactivated their ID.

In this article, we will help you tackle “how to know if someone blocked me on messenger without messaging them?”

Method 1: See The Chat box

Look for a few changes in the chat box of the concerned person. For instance, if you notice a message like “You can’t reply to this conversation” in replacement of the text bar, you don’t see the calling icon & the activity status of that person.

Then there’s a chance that you have been blocked, or they might have just deactivated their ID.

Method 2: Visit The Profile

Check if you can visit their profile, try to see their stories, react to their posts & messages. If you can’t do any of the above things.

The other thing you should try to do is, Go to the Search bar > Type the Name. If you don’t find any luck, then you have been surely blocked by that person.

Method 3: Check The message Status

Check the status of the last sent messages. All you have to do is Log in to the Messenger App > Search the ID of the recipient.

Check for the symbol drawn beside the messages. It will help you know whether you have been blocked or not. 

blue tick on the circle means that your message has been sent to the concerned person.

The message has been delivered to the recipient if you see a filled blue circle including a tick.

When you notice the recipient’s profile picture next to your message, it indicates that the recipient has successfully read your message but hasn’t replied to you yet. 

What does these Messenger icons means?

Even after a long while, you notice that the message has only a blue tick on the circle, then it means that your message is sent but not yet delivered to the concerned person because they have either blocked you or just deactivated their account.

Method 4: React To The Messages

The previous method got me to remember that you must try reacting to the old conversation with that person. Press & hold on to any previous message sent by you to that particular person in the conversation.

If you can, then there is nothing to worry about, but if you can’t, then you should look into this matter.

Method 5: Try To Add Them

Try to search and send them a friend request on Facebook Messenger. You won’t be able to do it in two cases: Firstly, when you are blocked by that person.

Secondly, if they have set “Friends Of Friends” in Who can send you friend requests settings, you can’t send them the friend request.

Method 6: Tag Them

Simply, Go to the Posts > Add a new Post or Status on your Timeline > Tap on Edit > Tag. Search for the concerned person’s name.

If you can’t find their name on the list. Then, you must have been blocked by that person, or they have deactivated their ID, or they have done something in the settings.
