How to Know If You Are Blocked On FaceTime 

FaceTime has become an intimate platform for Apple users to video call their loved ones, colleagues, and friends. However, it can be just plain sad when your calls go unanswered again and again and you’re left guessing if you’ve been blocked or they’re just busy.

In today’s guide, we will provide you with some tips to know whether you are blocked on FaceTime by someone. Let’s find the truth.

How To Know If You Are Blocked On FaceTime

How Do I Know If I’m Blocked on FaceTime 

Now, unfortunately, there is no direct way to know if someone has blocked you on FaceTime. Mainly it is because the call will ring from your side but won’t reach the other person. 

However, here are some workarounds that can help you determine the same:

Option 1: Message Them

It is the most simple and effective way. All you need to send an iMessage to the person and wait. If you notice that your message is marked as Delivered for a very long time and does not change to Read, there are chances that you’re blocked.

Option 2: Call With a Different Number

Firstly call them from your number. If it still goes ignored, call the person from a different phone number. 

If this time the call goes through and they answer it but don’t when you call from your own number, it is a sign that they have blocked you.

Option 3: Reach Out on Social Media Platforms

Although there are chances that if a person has blocked your number then they might have also blocked you on other platforms, you can still give it a try.

For example, visit their profile on Messenger and send them a message. If you are unable to view their profile or message them, it suggests that you have been blocked on multiple platforms.

However, if they haven’t blocked you on Messenger yet, chances are they’ll block you there as soon as you text them.

Option 4: Observe if Your Calls Go to Their Voicemail

If a person has blocked you on FaceTime, your calls may directly go to the voicemails. 

Option 5: Check for Long Rings

If your calls ring longer than usual without being picked up, you’re likely blocked.
