How To delete a person from Hangouts

Hangouts has an option to delete a person from Hangout. But, if you choose that option, Hangout does not delete the person completely. The name still exists in Hangouts and Hangouts is continuously trying to contact that person, even though he is no longer available on Hangout.

– I want to know how do I really delete someone from Hangouts? [ANSWER] You can’t! It’s actually impossible for anyone but Google to permanently remove someone from Hangouts because Hangouts was made so that friends can never be removed or blocked (that includes their number) – “Google Voice” built into “Hangout”. Also, there are various ways by which you can get added back into other people’s Hangout by using this option:

You can’t block Hangouts or Hangout people (no blacklisting) because of the above reasons.

The privacy options in Hangouts even violate the rights of users around the world, especially where there is government surveillance – so it won’t matter whether Hangouts will have any privacy options or not.

Google tracks everything, including your location at every moment if you’re using its services (e.g., GPS on mobile devices), photos and videos taken on mobile devices, user names and passwords used for logging into Google services, almost anything you use while you’re logged into Hangouts on your computer or a mobile device (via the Hangout API), etc.
