Come in WhatsApp, also in Telegram you can block and unblock any contact so that they no longer bother you, this way they will no longer be able to contact you, they will have to do it in another way, but not through this Messenger service application.

This is useful when there are people you no longer want to talk to or for other reasons, the best thing is that it is a reversible action and in the distant or near future you can unblock that person and start a conversation with them again without any problems.



Probably in the time that has passed since you blocked it until you unblocked it, you have noticed symptoms that allow you to almost certainly guess that you have blocked it, this can happen if that person has tried unsuccessfully to write you on Telegram.

In case you need it at any time, we will tell you what step you need to follow to block contacts in Telegram for Android, in the iPhone version and also in Telegram web, in all you can, you will also see what you have to do to unlock them.

  2. Then, click on your name at the top and once inside on the «More» button.


  1. Finally, click on «Block user» and accept the message that you will not receive any more calls or texts from that person.
