To hide any of your chats in WhatsApp, you can archive it and keep it hidden forever. Even if new messages come in, it will remain hidden. Many times such chats are kept in the mail box of WhatsApp which are of no use to us. With this feature of WhatsApp, you can keep such chats hidden as long as you want. Archive folder ignores such chat persons or group chats and there is no need to block them.

Till some time ago, whenever a new message was received in a chat hidden in the archive folder, it would become visible again. That means it would come out of the archive folder. WhatsApp rolled out new Archived Chats settings in July. After its implementation, even if a new message comes in the chat kept in the archive folder, it remains hidden. This means that unless the user himself wants to remove that archived chat from the folder, it will remain hidden.
