Unwanted users can be easily blocked with a new update to the encrypted chat application
User contacts can only be used to contact new contacts in the latest version of Signal Messenger. In the latest release of the encrypted chat application, if a person who is not in the user's contact list sends them a message, it is already possible to view their profile before accepting the contact. If the requested user does not want to talk to the person, the request can be easily deleted, but the sender of the message can also be blocked. This function also works for incoming calls or adding to new groups.
