  • Open WhatsApp and go to your Chats screen.
  • Tap the Menu Button > Settings > Contacts > Blocked Contacts.
  • This page displays all contacts that you have blocked.
  • Tap the Add blocked contacts icon in the top right.

If you would like to unblock someone, simply long-press the contact in the Blocked Contacts screen and select [Unblock].
To block an unknown contact, simply open the chat conversation, scroll to the top, then tap [Block].
