In every messenger app people are at the risk of being abused by someone or someone whom you don’t like may contact you. Due to this telegram has presented a block option. But instead of blocking others someone may block you and then the question arises that how will you know that you are blocked. You can know this if following things happen:

  • Last connection : last seen is a long time ago.
  • You are sending messages and that person does not read your messages.
  • You cannot see that person’s profile picture.

All these conditions are met when you are blocked. If the person doesn't answer you but you can still see that person's profile picture then simply that person doesn't want to speak to you for whatever reason.

If you feel that you are still not sure that the person had blocked you or not then simply give that number to someone else and ask that person whether he/she can see the profile picture or last connection. If the person’s answer is in affirmative then you are definitely blocked.

If I block a person on Telegram, will I be able to see their old messages they sent me once I unblock them?
Matthew Nesbitt
Hi Dee,

The the short answer is no. You will be able to see all the old messages you received before you blocked them, but you will not receive any messages from a person after you have blocked them. This means that when you unblock someone you will not see any messages they have tried to send you while they were blocked as they were never received and will not be received retroactively.

Hope this is helpful.

If you want to make sure that your are blocked from someone, in addition to the three point you mentioned you can try to add this person to a group and you will not be able to do that and you will get an error message. Thanks
