A huge WhatsApp bug allows blocked contacts to get in touch with people.
Numerous users of the messaging app say that people they have blocked potentially are now able to reach out to them and send messages.
It’s incredible.. try to search “WhatsApp blocked” on Twitter.. many users are experiencing this issue.
It looks a server side issue, because both Android and iOS apps receive messages from blocked users..

The problem appears to go away if the person is unblocked and then blocked again. But many users might not be aware of it: the bug not only allows people to send messages but also to see people’s status and profile details.
Did you know: You can get Siri or Google Assistant to type your WhatsApp messages out for you by saying either “Hey Siri” or “Okay Google”, followed by the name of the person you want to message and the actual contents of the message.
