How to bypass Telegram block

While it is not possible to unlock yourself you can still try to get around the problem. Let's see how to get unlocked on Telegram in an alternative way.

In order for you to bypass the Telegram block you must join a group where you are sure that the user who blocked you is present. Although you will have no way of communicating directly with him you will be able to write indirect messages that imply that he is the recipient. This way you can keep writing to this person and convince him to get you unlocked.

How long does the block on Telegram last

You are surely wondering if Telegram has an internal system that binds the block with a specific time. While it may be an interesting solution, the program does not provide its members with a predefined blocking system.

There is no other solution than to hope that the other person unlocks your profile to continue communicating with us. The duration in this case can be a few days or infinite, it depends on the relationship between the two parties.

Who blocked me on Telegram

Interesting topic of discussion is the know who could block you on Telegram. Understanding if your friend or acquaintance has blocked you on Telegram is very simple, just check some parameters to identify the block or not in a few seconds. In particular, we can divide two maxi categories: chat e calls.

  • Chat: access an existing chat with the person you think has blocked you or if you have deleted it, open a new one. At this point have a look at the last access time under the contact name. If you can't see it, you may have been blocked. Try sending a message to that contact e if the two ticks do not show up even hours after sending it, it is very likely that it will be blocked.
  • Call: if, however, the chat has caused you to have even more doubts you can try the VoIP call function. The moment you initiate a call and cannot communicate or hear sounds, it means that Telegram does not allow you to do so (displaying Connection failed). This condition is a clear sign that the person called has made a block against you.

Find out who blocked you

The solutions analyzed above are the most evident and show what is the mechanism of instant messaging software such as Telegram. But what are the other clues that can help find out who has blocked on the platform so that you can understand how to get unblocked on Telegram?

  • Clue number one is definitely the sudden disappearance of the profile picture of the blocking user. While there are many possibilities that the image may only be private and not necessarily inherent to the block, if it were to disappear overnight, the odds increase dramatically.
  • Another important element is the message under the profile picture. Most of the friends write a representative phrase and usually it is visible only to contacts in the address book and not to those blocked. Telegram, in fact, obliges its subscribers to leave a message to identify themselves better, even if this was just a letter or a figure. If you do not see it, the contact may have blocked you or no longer have your number in the address book or on Telegram itself.
  • Solution that often escapes even the most expert is that of connect to the account of a friend or relative and verify that that number is still present on Telegram and that the functions of: picture profile, State e Last Access are still fully active. In the event that these elements are perfectly active, you can with certainty determine that you have been blocked on Telegram and commit to having yourself unblocked.
