No profile picture

The profile photo will suddenly vanish if someone blocks you on WhatsApp. Until yesterday you were able to see the profile photo but it disappeared suddenly?

Check with a mutual friend, if your friend can see the profile photo but you can’t you’re blocked.

No status or other details

Along with the profile picture, you won’t be able to see details such as status, las seen, and more if someone blocks you on WhatsApp. Another reason for not able to see the status, photo and other details could be the change in Settings.
