    hey! can the person notice that he/she is blocked by me? Like not seeing my status or picture anymore, like on whatsapp?

      It depends… But in general the answer is “yes” .
      Because when you block someone, your last seen changes to “last seen a long time ago” and even your picture becomes hidden…

    I can’t find the “Setting” option on the top right corner of sub menu icon.

    Hi… I have someone that’s been messaging that I no longer want to. I sent them a message to ask them to stop contacting and informing them I’d block. I then blocked immediately. Will they actually receive the message now that I’ve blocked them?

    • No! Not a single message will be received!

      • sportygirl2015

        Even though I sent the message before I blocked them?
