If someone is harassing you, constantly texting you, threatening you or sending inappropriate content, you can add them to your blocked list.

You will never receive messages from blocked people. They won't be able to text, call or video call you on Whatsapp and they won't even see your profile or status.

However, blocking is not always the best way to avoid someone. For example, if it's one of your close friends who is constantly texting you, you can't block them because their messages seem annoying.

You would rather find a way to avoid blocking their messages altogether

The good news is that it's completely possible to block someone's text on WhatsApp without blocking it.

Let's take a look at some ways to block people on WhatsApp without adding them to your blocked list.

Why should you stop receiving messages from anyone on WhatsApp?

Have you ever joined a group where 100+ messages are exchanged per hour? Or, have you ever given your number to someone who is constantly texting you? Sometimes, people get messages from users who send inappropriate content or harassing messages. They keep texting or making calls. It becomes very important to block their numbers or leave such groups to stop receiving messages.

But you already know that blocking is not always the best option. Users will realize that it is only a matter of time before they are blocked. If they keep sending you messages that only show a tick, they'll know you've blocked them. You don't want to look bad by blocking a friend or relative on WhatsApp, but at the same time, you can get tired of those messages.

The only way to stop receiving text from a user is to ask them to stop sending you text directly. However, that sounds extremely rude. Also, it can affect your relationship with the user.

In this post, we will walk you through the easiest ways to stop receiving this type of text on Whatsapp without blocking the user. Without further ado, let's get started.

How to block someone on whatsapp without them knowing

1. Delete their numbers

OK, so this step may or may not work for everyone. If it's a friend or relative who keeps texting you, delete their contacts and remove them from your Whatsapp. This step works wonders for those who do not want to receive messages from certain people. By deleting their numbers, you will give them an indication that you are not interested in receiving texts from them. Now, after you've deleted their contacts, make sure you've changed your profile settings to My Contacts only. So, only people on your contact list will be able to see your profile photo and status. This is a great way to stop receiving messages from users.

2. Mute their message

There are two main reasons why this feature is best for WhatsApp users First, it does not inform the person that you have muted their messages Two, you will stop receiving notifications for their messages. This means that even if they send a message, you don't have to deal with notifications.

Still, their chats will show up on your WhatsApp, reminding you of messages you haven't seen. The best way to avoid this is to pin a few contacts. This will do the trick. Here's how you can mute a message from a contact:

Open Whatsapp and hold the person you want to mute for a few seconds.
Select the mute icon at the top
Click on the ideal time period for which you want to mute the messages.

You will not receive any notifications for the target message. So, you'll be bored.

You can do the same for group chat. If you join a group where hundreds of messages are sent and received each day, you can mute the messages so that you do not receive a notification every time a new message is sent. This way you can avoid certain people without leaving the WhatsApp group or blocking certain users.
