Remove the reporting of a WhatsApp contact

Have you accidentally reported a WhatsApp contact? What you have to do, as we said, is to contact the team of the well-known instant messaging platform via email. Basically you have to write an email in English where you will have to indicate your mobile number and contact number you reported by mistake. It is also useful to specify the day and time in which you made the report, so as to be even more precise.

We recommend that you put something like “Wrong spam alert for [phone number]” as the subject of the email. Once the message is finished, you will need to send it to the following address: If in addition to the report you have also blocked the contact in question, you can unblock it by following the instructions below:

  • If you own one smartphone, start WhatsApp, stop the button (⋮), select the Settings item from the menu that opens and press on the Account> Privacy items. Now select the item Blocked contacts and tap on the name of the contact you want to unblock. Finally, select the Unblock [Name] item in the open pane.
  • In case you have a iPhone, you must always start WhatsApp, tap on Settings and then go to the Account> Privacy menu. Once this is done, select the Blocked option (so as to view the list of blocked contacts) and locate the user you want to unblock by swiping his name from right to left. On the right you will see the Unlock button: to unlock the user just press it.

  • If you have an Android smartphone, start WhatsApp, tap on the group name (you can find it on the Chat screen) and press the group name again, and then move to OFF the switch located in correspondence with the wording Disable notifications.
  • Do you own an iPhone?
