How to understand if a person has blocked you on Telegram

Now that you have learned how to block on Telegram you may also wonder if anyone has done the same process on you and then the question becomes: Is it possible to understand if a person has blocked me or not?

The answer? Continue reading and everything will be clear to you!

Last access

The first clue to understanding if you've been blocked is to take a look at thelast login.

Usually, except for very occasional users, Telegram provides rather precise temporal indications, such as when it refers to a user who has recently logged in, this means that access occurred at least once in the previous 48/72 hours.

But when the indication shows Last access a long time ago it means that more than a month has passed and this in itself is already a valuable clue.

If you are aware that the other person tends to connect frequently but you continue to see remote timing, the chances that you have been blocked are very high.

The Telegram ticks

You can have a definitive proof by trying to send a message. Telegram is designed in such a way that a a tick corresponds to a sent message, two ticks to one displayed.

Where even after days you continue to see only one check it means that there was no display and therefore you have been blocked.

What happens if I block a person on Telegram

Don't worry, we assure you that your smartphone or tablet will not suddenly explode, but you may rightly wonder what implications your action may have.

So, let's start by telling you that the blocking is however a temporary measure, at any time you can go back to your decision and unblock the desired user, so don't worry it is not an irreversible procedure.

From a purely practical point of view you will simply deny the other person to be able to contact you either via text message or via calls and / or video calls.

Also, very importantly, the blocked user will not be notified of their current status.

What does he see contact blocked on Telegram

Allow us a small but clear similarity: when you proceed to block a person it is as if you are slamming the door of the house in their face, they will know that you are there however they cannot reach you.

It is a simplification perhaps even trivial, but which perfectly explains the state of things.

You must know, in fact, that a blocked contact will still be able to see yours since Telegram automatically synchronizes with the user's address book, however it will not accurately see the last login, your profile photos and if he will try to contact you in any way the communication will not be forwarded.

In this respect you can rest assured, Telegram is a platform that since its foundation has always acted to safeguard the privacy and security of its users.

The only way for a blocked person to contact you is if you want to and then proceed to unblock them, otherwise it will be impossible. In this regard, I suggest you also read our guide on what a deleted contact sees on Telegram.
