The best way to avoid someone on WhatsApp is to block them. But if blocking them brings some form of guilt, there are other things you can try to avoid someone on WhatsApp.

In this short guide, I will show you how to stop receiving messages on WhatsApp without blocking.

I have listed some methods you can use to stop receiving messages from someone without blocking them.

How To Stop Receiving Messages On WhatsApp Without Blocking

The steps below work on Android and iOS device. Try it out, I hope it works for you.

Method 1: Mute Them

One way to stop receiving messages on WhatsApp without blocking is by muting contacts.

Muting a contact on WhatsApp won’t hit the hammer on the nail, but I think it is a great way to stop receiving message notifications from specific people on WhatsApp.

You can mute contacts for 8 hours, 1 week or a whole year.

Here’s what to do.

  • Open WhatsApp on your Android or iOS device.
  • Press and hold the name of the contact you want to mute.
  • Click on the mute icon at the top.
  • Select the duration of mute.

What does this do?

  1. WhatsApp will not notify you when the person sends a message to you.
  2. The person will not know that you have mute them.

Their messages might still get in the way, one tip I use to hide messages to stop showing in my WhatsApp top feed is this;

  • Pin 10-13 important chats. (This should send muted messages down).

Method 2: Delete Their Contact

Here’s another tip to try. Simply locate the contact on your contacts list and delete the number (be sure to have it backed up, you might need it in the future).

That’s not all, after deleting their contacts from your device, you should also set your WhatsApp privacy so that only your contacts will be able to view your statuses, and profile photo.

Here’s what to do;

  • Find and delete the contact from the contacts list.
  • Open Whatsapp.
  • Go to Settings.
  • Go to privacy.
  • Set profile photo, about and status to contacts only.

How To Avoid WhatsApp Group Without Leaving

Is there a WhatsApp you want to leave so badly but can’t because you don’t want the admin or fellow group members to be angry with you?

There’s a way to ignore such groups, here is what to do.

  1. Open Whatsapp.
  2. Long press on the group you want to avoid.
  3. Click on the mute icon at the top.
  4. Select the duration of mute.
  5. Select 10-20 of your favorite and most active WhatsApp contacts and pin them to the top.

After doing this, you will not receive notifications from the group again, and messages from the group won’t appear among your first 10-20 chat list.

If you don’t know how to pin messages on WhatsApp, here is what to do;

  1. Open Whatsapp.
  2. Long press on the contact you want to pin.
