Detecting If You’ve Been Blocked on Line (Compatible with iOS 17/16/15)

Detecting If You've Been Blocked on Line

If your messages on Line remain unanswered, there’s a chance you might be blocked. For those feeling uncertain and distressed about this possibility, our guide aims to alleviate your concerns. We will provide various strategies to help you determine whether a friend has blocked you on Line.

1. Verify by Initiating a Group Chat

Our first method involves using an official account to test whether you’ve been blocked, ensuring privacy as no third parties are aware of this test. Here’s how to proceed:

  • Add an official account, identified by a shield and star icon next to its name.
  • Create a group chat, including both your friend and the official account.
  • If the chat shows as ’empty room,’ it indicates that your friend has blocked you.

An ’empty room’ notification in a group chat suggests that you cannot add certain individuals, which likely means they have blocked you.

2. Inspect Your Friend’s Profile Page

Initially, if you were able to access your friend’s Profile Page but now find it inaccessible while also being unable to contact them, they might have blocked you. Here’s how you can check:

  • Navigate to your friend list.
  • Click on the suspected blocker’s profile.
  • Press the home icon to visit their Line profile page.

If the page displays “There are no shared moments yet,” despite previously viewing posts there, it’s likely you have been blocked.

3. Attempt to Send a Sticker

Sending Stiker Line to Your friend

One simple test is to try sending a sticker to your friend. If you’re blocked, Line will prevent you from sending any stickers. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Click the “More” icon to begin. Then, go to the “Sticker Shop,” which is normally a paid feature (note that you won’t actually need to spend any money for this test).
  2. Choose the “Send as a Gift” option, select the friend in question, and hit “Select.”
  3. If you see “Purchase this Gift,” then good news—you haven’t been blocked! You can either send the sticker or cancel the action.
  4. If the message states “You cannot give these stickers to this user as he/she already has them,” it means one of two things: either you have been blocked, or your friend already owns the sticker. If you repeatedly receive this message, it’s likely you’ve been blocked.

4. Try Sending a Theme

This approach is similar to the sticker method and doesn’t involve any actual costs. Line restricts sending themes as gifts to blocked users to prevent unfair charges. Here’s how to check using this method:

  1. Tap the “More” icon, then navigate to the “Theme Shop,” another paid feature.
  2. Select any theme from the shop, like “Hello Kitty Jewelry,” as an example.
  3. Choose “Send as a Gift” and pick the friend you suspect has blocked you.
  4. If the option to send the gift appears without error, they haven’t blocked you and also do not own the theme.
  5. If it says “He/she already has this theme,” then it could mean they are either blocked or already own the theme. Try with different themes to be sure.

These methods will help you ascertain whether you’ve been blocked, offering peace of mind or clarity on your relationship status. Additionally, consider backing up your Line data to your computer, ensuring you have access to your information regardless of your contact status.
