How To Unblock Yourself On Whatsapp

WhatsApp is a popular messaging platform used by millions worldwide. However, at times you may find yourself blocked by another user. While it’s important to respect others’ decisions to limit their interactions, you may need to communicate with them in certain circumstances. Unfortunately, WhatsApp doesn’t provide a direct feature to unblock yourself. But don’t worry, there is a workaround. Before we delve into it, please note that this method will erase your chat history.

Step 1: Back Up Your Chats

Since this method will delete all your chats, you should back them up if they are important. You can back up your chats to Google Drive or iCloud, depending on your device. To back up your chats, follow these steps:

        - Open WhatsApp.
        - Go to Menu (three dots in the upper right corner) > Settings > Chats > Chat backup.
        - Tap on 'BACK UP' button.

Step 2: Delete Your WhatsApp Account

This is the crucial step. You need to delete your WhatsApp account. Here’s how to do it:

        - Open WhatsApp.
        - Go to Menu > Settings > Account > Delete my account.
        - Enter your phone number in full international format and tap on 'DELETE MY ACCOUNT'.

Note: Deleting your account will erase your profile information, delete you from all WhatsApp groups, and also delete your Google Drive backup.

Step 3: Clear WhatsApp Data

Now, you need to clear your WhatsApp data from your device. Here’s how to do it:

        - Go to your phone settings.
        - Tap on 'Apps' or 'Application Manager'.
        - Scroll down and find WhatsApp.
        - Tap on 'Storage' and then on 'CLEAR DATA'.

Step 4: Reinstall WhatsApp

Once the data is cleared, uninstall WhatsApp from your device. After uninstalling, reinstall it from Google Play Store or App Store. Then, set up your account using your phone number. Now, you’re no longer blocked.

Remember: This method should be used responsibly and not to harass or invade someone’s privacy. If a person has blocked you, they’ve done so for a reason, and it’s important to respect that. Only use this method if absolutely necessary, and avoid repeating whatever action led to you being blocked in the first place.


This method is a loophole and not an official feature provided by WhatsApp. It’s a drastic measure and should be used sparingly and responsibly. If you find yourself blocked frequently, it might be worth reflecting on your interactions with people on the platform and trying to improve them.
