Block WhatsApp Contacts on LG L70
Hotelier, Rushell, Eng
Hello and thank you for watching VisiHow. Today, we will show you how to block a contact on WhatsApp on the LG L70, making it so that a person will not be able to reach us on this application for a period of time.
To begin, we can unlock the phone by pressing the button on the top right-hand side
This brings us to the Home screen
We can see the "WhatsApp" icon already loaded on the Home screen, since we use this application frequently.
If the "WhatsApp" icon is not found on the Home screen, we can access the application through the "Apps" menu
That icon is located at the bottom right corner of the screen. It's a gray box with a bunch of white squares inside of it.
We'll tap on the the "Apps" icon one time
This will open up a list of all the applications
Then we can swipe left or right through the applications until we find the "WhatsApp" icon.
The "WhatsApp" icon is a green conversational bubble with a telephone inside of it
Pressing this icon one time will open up the application.
In "WhatsApp", we now need to locate a contact to block, which we can do by pressing the "Contacts" icon
This is a small white card and it's the middle icon on the top right-hand side of the screen.
We can press on that icon one time to search all of our contacts
If we don't have a lot of contacts, we may be able to just scroll through them to find the one we want to block.
However, if there are a lot of contacts, it may be more helpful to use the search function by pressing on magnifying glass icon at the top right
Press the magnifying glass one time to ring up the keyboard
As we begin typing in a name, all of the contacts that match the first several letters will show up automatically as we're typing
Once we have located a contact, we can tap on the name to select that person
From the next screen, we can either message them or interact with them in other ways, such as calling or sending an attachment
We can press the three dots in a line at the top right-hand corner to bring up more options
With the top option, we can "View contact", to see more details about this contact
We can also interact with "Media"
We can set a "Wallpaper" for the conversation as well
For now, let's select "More" to bring up even more options
At this point, we can either "Add shortcut" or "Block" this contact
We can "Block" them by pressing the "Block" option one time
This will bring up a warning message that says, "Blocked contacts will no longer be able to call you or send you messages."
If we are certain we want to block this contact, we can tap to select "OK"
A message displays asking us to "Please wait a moment"
Now, the person has been added to our Block list.
Now, we can go back to the Home screen by simply pressing the bottom center button on the phone
This concludes our tutorial on how to block one of your contacts on WhatsApp on the LG L70
