Have you ever wanted to check if someone has blocked you on KakaoTalk, such as when they don't reply to you? So this time, we will introduce the latest block confirmation method that will not be found in 2022.

We will also explain “what you can do” and “what you cannot do” even if KakaoTalk is blocked.

How to check if you are blocked on kakaotalk

invite to group talk

KakaoTalk cannot invite blocked people to group chat.

So, if you create a group chat by inviting the person you want to check blocked and a friend who is definitely not blocked, you can check if the other person has blocked you.

To invite to a group talk, first tap the balloon mark at the top of the talk screen.

Next, go to "Talk", select a friend who has recently interacted with the person who seems to be blocked and who is definitely not blocked, and tap "Confirm".

After that, you can invite to group talk by sending letters and stamps.

At this time, if you can invite both of them and the number of people in the group chat is three, including yourself, you are not blocked by the other party.

On the other hand, if you can only invite one person and the number of people in the group chat is two, including yourself, the person who was suspected of blocking has blocked you.

Check without knowing if you know someone

This isn't a 100% sure way to confirm a block, but it's a way that the other party can't find out that you've confirmed a block.

If you are hesitant about inviting people to a group chat to check it, or if you don't have any other friends to invite to a group chat, please try this method.

①Turn on Show recommendations

First, go to the setting of the gear mark from "..." at the bottom right of the screen.


Then go to Kakatomo and turn on Show Recommendations.


② Block the opponent

Next, tap the human-shaped mark on the bottom left of the screen to display the list of Kaka and others, and block the opponent who seems to be blocked.

If you are using the iOS version, swipe left and tap "Block".


If you are using the Android version, you can block the other party by long-pressing and tapping "Block".


③ Unblock

If you block someone, unblock them from your block list immediately.

You can unblock by going to "Kakatomo" → "Block List" from Settings and tapping "Manage" → "Unblock".



When you unblock it, a pop-up will appear asking "Would you like to add Kaka and Kaka now?" Tap "Cancel".

④ Check if it is displayed in acquaintances

If you are not blocked by the other party, the other party will be displayed in "Maybe you know?" about 10 minutes after unblocking.

However, just because someone doesn't show up in People you know doesn't necessarily mean they're blocked.

This is because if the other person has "Show Recommendations" turned off, they will not appear in People you know even if you have not blocked them.

Have you ever wanted to check if someone has blocked you on KakaoTalk, such as when they don't reply to you? So this time, we will introduce the latest block confirmation method that will not be found in 2022.

We will also explain “what you can do” and “what you cannot do” even if KakaoTalk is blocked.

What happens if you get blocked on kakaotalk? Things impossible

From here, we will introduce in detail what you can and cannot do if you are blocked on KakaoTalk.

Can't invite to group talk

As explained in How to check if you are blocked, you cannot invite a blocked person to a group chat.

Doesn't show up in people you know

As explained in How to check if someone is blocked, the blocked person will not be displayed in People you know.

Messages are no longer marked as read

Even if you are blocked, you can send messages to the other party, but the message will not be delivered to the other party, so it will inevitably not be marked as read.

I make a toll-free call (telephone) but it does not answer

Even if it is blocked, you can make a free call to the other party, but the other party will not answer because the ring tone will not sound and there will be no incoming call history.

What happens if you get blocked on kakaotalk? what you can do

Even if blocked by KakaoTalk, the following operations can be performed, so it is not effective as a block confirmation method.

Browse Icons

Even if you are blocked by KakaoTalk, you can view the other person's icon (profile picture).

If the other party changes the icon, the change will be reflected on your screen.

Browse stories

There is a high possibility that this will be fixed in the future, but even if you are blocked by KakaoTalk, you can view the other person's story.

ID search

It is often thought that ID search will not be possible when blocked, but ID search is possible and "I am a registered Kaka" is displayed.

Please refer to the following article for the reason why the other party is not displayed even if you search for the ID.

stamp gift

LINE cannot give a stamp to a blocked person, but KakaoTalk can give a stamp to a blocked person, so it cannot be used to confirm the block.

However, just because you can give a stamp as a gift does not mean that it will reach the other person.

Even if the other party unblocks you, you will not receive the stamp, so please refrain from confirming the block with a stamp gift.

Participating in open talks

Even if you are blocked by KakaoTalk, you can participate in an open talk where the other party acts as an administrator and talk.

However, if you don't join anonymously by creating a new profile for open talk, you're likely to be kicked out.
