How come I can see the profile pic of someone who blocked me on WhatsApp
If someone has blocked you on WhatsApp, you should not be able to see their profile picture. This is because when someone blocks you on WhatsApp, you are essentially removed from their contact list, which means you lose access to their profile picture, status updates, and last seen status.
However, there are a few scenarios where you might still be able to see their profile picture even if they have blocked you:
Cached data: If you have previously accessed the blocked contact's profile picture on WhatsApp, it may still be stored in your phone's cache memory. As a result, you may still be able to view the picture even if you have been blocked.
Mutual groups: If you and the blocked contact are both members of a WhatsApp group, you will still be able to see their profile picture in the group. However, you will not be able to send them messages or see their updates outside of the group.
Third-party apps: There are third-party apps and services that claim to allow you to view the profile pictures of blocked contacts on WhatsApp. However, these apps are not authorized by WhatsApp and may pose a security risk to your personal information and data.
In summary, if you have been blocked on WhatsApp, you should not be able to see the profile picture of the person who blocked you. If you are still able to see their picture, it may be due to cached data or mutual group membership.
