How to defeat spammers and trollsopen all
What for: To keep out spam.
Any WhatsApp user who knows your phone number can send you a message. If you have been targeted by fraudsters or spammers, you can block the unwanted users. You can also block users from whom you do not wish to receive messages for any other reason.
Blocked users will not know that they have been blacklisted. They will not be able to call you or view your status updates, and all messages sent by them will be marked as undelivered. You will not see those messages at all.
To block a user:
- Open the chat with the contact you want to block.
- Click the three dots icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Select Contact info.
- In the window that opens, click Block in the list at the bottom and confirm your selection.
