4. When Happens When You Block Someone on Kik

If you blocked someone, you will not see messages from them or even messages from bots that you try to add to a chat. When a person you have blocked tries to message you, they will not know they’ve been blocked and their message will not be delivered.

5. When You Block Someone on Kik Do They Still Get Your Messages?

The person you block will still see the messages you sent to them before you blocked them. You will, however, be unable to see any messages they send you and they will also not appear in your friend/contact list. The old messages don’t get deleted. You are the one who won’t see their messages.

6. How Do You Know if Someone Blocked You on Kik?

It can be very hard to know whether your friend has blocked you on Kik, although there are two hints to give you an idea.

To begin with, check if the “D” changes to “R.” If a message you send them is marked “D” it means that the message has been delivered. But if the person has blocked you, the “D” will never change to an “R” because the person will not read the messages.

Also, if you are unable to start a group with them, they have blocked you. To check, try to set up a group and if you receive an error message saying, “You cannot start a group with people you are not chatting with,” the person has blocked you.
