How to Know If Someone Has Blocked You on iMessage

Have sent iMessages to friends but receives no response? They are too negligent to notice the iMessages or they have blocked you on iMessage? Well, we cannot deny that Apple does offer us many advanced service but it is really hard to tell whether friends have blacked you on iMessages.

In this article, we offer several ways about how to confirm if someone has blocked you on iMessages. Read on and find what is useful for you. And what may surprise you is that all the methods are free.

1 Check the Color of iMessages You Sent

If you send an iMessage in color blue to your friend, but it never says Delivered and after a few minutes the iMessage turns green.....Well, we cannot say that you definitely have been blocked by the friend via the simple color sign. However, in the digital era, it is pretty unlikely that the iMessage network doesn’t work and the iMessage you sent have to revert back as a text message. And we have a simple remedy to this. Just keep sending iMessages intermittently and if they all turn green from blue, then unhappily, you have been blocked definitely.

2 Check the Status of iMessages You Sent

Well, to know if you're blocked on iMessage is hard and the second tip may be not perfect but it is still worth a try. Generally, iPhone users turn on the Send Read Receipts for messages in Settings, and actually the default setting of the option is ON. If you send an iMessage to friend’s iPhone, and it stays blue saying Delivered but never turns to Read, then probably you've been blocked. And similar with the first tip, there's a small percentage that the receiver turns off his or her Send Read Receipts function.

3 Check the Status of iMessages on Both iPhone and MacBook

The third tip is suitable for iPhone users who have a MacBook. And it's very easy. Just send an iMessage through either your iPhone or MacBook. Your iPhone will always show a Delivered icon under the iMessage. However, if you have been blocked by your friend, the MacBook shows NOTHING under the iMessage. The MacBook doesn’t show any Delivered or Read sign.
