If you ask today’s youth what’s the one thing they value most, privacy will likely be in the top 5. It’s one of life’s most underrated yet highly important factors, and it’s getting increasingly difficult to protect. Think about all the targeted ads you see on websites; isn’t it common for something you’ve been thinking about to appear there? How do you think that happens? Well, the answer is staring right at you: your smartphone.
Anything you search for, tell someone about through text or even talk about while using your phone is all collected data. It is then implemented into your Google optimization, showing ads you will most likely click on.
Now, although there’s no substantial proof, some users believe their phones are listening and recording all their conversations day in and day out, online or in person.
Today’s blog will discuss whether or not you can send a message to a user who has blocked you on Telegram.
Can I Send Message to Someone Who Blocked Me on Telegram?
Let’s discuss your initial question: can you or not send a message to a user on Telegram after they’ve blocked you? As you can guess, the answer is no; you cannot. Being blocked on Telegram is an extremely strict measure, and one of the main objectives behind it is that you shouldn’t contact them.
Let us first tell you how blocking works on Telegram and how you can block someone on the platform.
When a user blocks you on Telegram, it means they absolutely do not wish for you to be able to contact them anymore. You cannot send them any messages or video/audio call them. You also won’t see their profile picture, bio, or online activity.
So, if you see these indicators with another user on Telegram, there’s a chance you’ve been blocked. Still, it is hypothetically possible for all these indicators to appear for an entirely different reason.
You see, Telegram cannot inform any user that they have been blocked since it violates the privacy of the users. That being said, it isn’t hard to connect the dots once you get an idea of what happened.
Here’s how you can block a user on Telegram
Step 1: Open the Telegram smartphone app on your phone.
Step 2: You’ll automatically see the Chats tab on the platform. Find and long-press on your chats with whoever you’re blocking.
Step 3: At the top of the page, there will be many options. Tap on the three-dots icon at the corner. A drop-down menu will materialize.
Step 4: Tap on the last option there called Block user. You also have the option to Report spam and Delete this chat as a way to eliminate them from your account completely. Here, the answer depends on the severity of the situation and how much you wish to punish this person.
If this is to give them a wake-up call, deleting the chat doesn’t make sense. Reporting only works if they’ve been spamming your account with automated messages or have been inappropriate towards you on the platform. It’s best to tap on Block user to get this over with.
