Your messages don’t deliver

When someone blocks you on Telegram, they cannot receive your messages anymore. A single tick next to your message shows that it has been successfully sent from your device. Double ticks confirm that the receiver has read your message. If your texts are stuck on single ticks for a long time, it is possible that you may have been blocked by the recipient. This is not a sure-shot way to confirm that you have been blocked by someone, but it is the first thing that you should look out for. Messages can also get stuck on single ticks when the recipient deletes the Telegram app from their device.

You can’t view the person’s profile picture

Another strong sign that you have been blocked by someone on Telegram is that you can’t view their profile picture anymore. In this situation, their profile picture reverts back to their initials. It is also possible that the user may have simply taken down their profile picture, but if your messages fail to deliver as well, it is more likely that you have been blocked by them.

Your chats with the person are deleted

Telegram gives you the option to delete your entire chat history with a contact once you block them. This option is turned on by default. Once you choose this option, it deletes the chat history for both parties. If you can’t view your conversation with someone, chances are that they have blocked you.

You are unable to view their activity status

Telegram lets you know when your contacts are online. A green dot next to their profile picture signifies that they are online. Once you open the conversation thread, you can view their activity status under their name. If the user has blocked you, this activity status turns to ‘Seen a long time ago’. If you are sure that the user was active on Telegram recently, this activity status could only mean that they have blocked your account.
