How to avoid unwanted messages on WhatsApp?

On a daily basis, WhatsApp is used by millions of users. It is a great platform to connect with friends and family members, on the other hand, there are some people who can or do bother you on WhatsApp. Some people block such people directly, but sometimes it happens that even if we want to, we are not able to block those people for any reason.Well, there’s a way for that as well.


WhatsApp gives its users the option to archive chats. Previously, the messaging platform used to alert even when an archived chat was messaged or called, but now it is not so.
