How To Boot People Offline On Phone

There are many reasons why you might want to prevent a coworker from being able to message you on your phone. Maybe they’re an annoying co-worker, or maybe you just don’t want them to be able to get in touch with you for some other reason. Maybe it’s personal and you don’t feel like dealing with that right now, or maybe it’s work-related and it would just be easier not to have that person bothering you right now. Whatever the case may be, there are several ways of keeping a coworker from messaging you on your phone so they can no longer contact you in that way. This is great if you don’t want that person contacting you with PChat and shouldn’t be necessary if they are your friend, but if the circumstances demand it, here are five ways of booting people offline on the phone so that they cannot message you again:

How To Boot People Offline On Phone?

Change your phone number

If you want to change your phone number entirely, this is definitely the best method. If you just want to block one person’s number, it might be more practical to just block their number on your phone. If you’re using a work phone, though, you might have to work with the phone number you have and not change it, but if you have your own phone that you use for PChat and other things, changing your phone number completely will definitely stop people from messaging you on that number. If you have a personal phone number and don’t have a work phone number, or you have a work phone number but don’t have a personal one, changing your phone number completely would be the best way to prevent someone from messaging you on your phone.

Disable the PChat app

If you’re using PChat on your phone and want to disable that app’s ability to message you, you can do so easily from the app’s settings. You can just click the three dots in the upper right corner of the PChat app and select the “app settings” option to get there. If you click the “messaging” option and toggle the “send and receive messages” option off, you will disable the app’s ability to message you and prevent anyone from messaging you with PChat from that point on.

Stop using email.com as your default email address

If someone is emailing you and you want to disable their ability to do so, you can just change your default email address to another email address that you only use for work, and then they can’t email you. If you’re using a work email address and don’t want people to be able to contact you at your personal email address, you can just change your default email address to your work email address, and they can’t email you at your personal email address anymore. If you don’t want people to be able to contact you at an email address and change your default email address to that email address, you can prevent them from emailing you at that email address.

Block their number

If someone is trying to contact you at your phone number and you want to make that more difficult, blocking their number from your phone will definitely do that. In fact, blocking their number from your phone will prevent them from calling you at all, whether by text or by phone. You can do this from your phone’s settings, usually labeled “call blocking” or “block callers.” If you block their number from your phone, they won’t be able to call you or text you. If they try to call you, your phone will just ring and you won’t see that call appear in your call log like it normally would.

Block them on Skype and other apps

If someone is messaging you through Skype or some other messenger, you can block them on those apps. To block someone on Skype, select the “add friend” icon in the upper right corner. Select the “people” option, then select the “manage contacts” option. You can also just click on their name from the chat screen and select “block” from the bottom of the menu that appears. If someone is messaging you on another app, you can usually find a “block” or “ignore” option in the app’s settings, or you can just report them and try to get them banned from the app.

Turn off text messaging on your phone

If you turn off text messaging on your phone, anyone will be unable to message you via text. You can turn off text messaging on your phone from your phone’s settings. If you turn off text messaging on your phone, anyone trying to message you will get a message saying that you can’t receive text messages. You can also turn off MMS on your phone, but that will prevent you from sending pictures or videos to people, too, so it might not be the best choice unless you really want to prevent people from messaging you on your phone.

Send yourself an email with a notification

If someone is messaging you, you can forward their messages to your personal email address, and you’ll get a notification every time they message you. You can use Gmail’s “filter” feature to do this. Just open Gmail, click the “gear” icon in the upper right corner, select the “filters and blocked addresses” option, and create a new filter. To create a filter that will forward all emails sent to your work email address to your personal email address, you would use the following settings: From the drop-down menu, select “as message,” enter your work email address, and enter your personal email address. You can also add a keyword to the filter so you can just see those emails on your personal email account without having to go through your work email account to see them, like with the keyword “work.”

Use a remote lock app

If you want to prevent a coworker from ever contacting you, you can use a remote lock app. Remote lock apps let you lock someone’s phone remotely with just a few clicks. That way, you can prevent them from ever contacting you again, and they won’t be able to unlock their phone either. If you want to prevent someone from ever contacting you, you can use a remote lock app and just lock their phone remotely. You can download a remote lock app and lock their phone remotely whenever you want and make sure they can’t contact you again, no matter what. You can also get apps that let you track their phone and check where they are and who they’re with, too, if you want to make sure they can’t contact you and they aren’t able to contact anyone else.

Ignore the incessant PChatting

If someone won’t leave you alone and you want them to leave you alone and respect the fact that you don’t want to talk to them, you can ignore them in PChat. To ignore someone in PChat, click on their name when they start chatting with you, then click the “block” icon from the bottom of the menu that appears. If you ignore someone in PChat, they won’t be able to see that you’re online and won’t be able to message you. They will just be able to see your last PChat message, and they won’t be able to see that you ignored them unless you decide to unignore them later.

Conclusion

If someone is bothering you and you want them to leave you alone, there are several ways to prevent them from contacting you. You can change your phone number, change your email address, block their number, block them on Skype and other apps, turn off text messaging on your phone, send yourself an email with a notification, or ignore the incessant PChatting. These tips should help you to keep people from bothering you and prevent them from contacting you on your phone.
