It’s super simple actually: we use the resource “To file”. You can just throw the contact to an area that you will practically not access. It will be simple to ignore unwanted contact without having to block it.

There are people who take advantage of the possibility of archiving interactions to leave only the most important contacts in the main. It is also a good way of organizing the application of messages.
The chats that have been archived remain there and undisturbed. They don’t indicate new messages, they don’t make any notification sound. It’s like a hidden folder. It’s very simple to archive a conversation and ignore an unwanted contact for good. See the step-by-step guide on how to make your day to day lighter:
- On the “Conversations” tab, tap and hold the conversation which you want to archive.
