What Happens to iMessages When You’re Blocked?

Share This:

When it comes to communication, blocking someone is a necessary step that many people take. Blocking someone on your iPhone blocks them from contacting you via the Messages app, FaceTime, or other messaging services such as WhatsApp and Skype. But what happens when you block someone on iMessage? Does the person know they’ve been blocked? Can they stil see your messages?

The answer is no. When you block someone on iMessage, their messages will not show up on your device at all. Instead, they will simply see a “Delivered” status for their message, even though it never actually arrived to you. This is becase their messages are now blocked by Apple’s servers and will never reach you.

Blocking someone on iMessage also prevents them from seeing any of your past conversations or being able to start new ones with you. They will not be able to see when you are typing a message either. If they try to call or FaceTime you, the call will immediately go straight to voicemail without ringing your phone at all.

It’s important to remember that blocking someone on iMessage does not automatically delete any of your conversations with the blocked contact. If you want to delete the conversation thread with this person, then you must do so manually before blocking them. Otherwise, the conversation thread stil remains in Messages and can be accessed by anyone who has access to your phone or computer (unless it’s password protected).

In short, if you block someone on iMessage they won’t be able to contact or view anything related to you in any way – instead they’ll only see a “Delivered” status for their message that never actually arrives.
