If I delete a message with a single tick, does it just get deleted from my local device, or does it stop the message from being delivered to the recipient?

I posted a message in a group and it just shows a single tick. I don't want a particular person in that group to see the message.


If the message has a single tick it means the message is sent and it's waiting to be seen by the user.

When the message has been seen by the user, the message will show a double tick.

For example : WhatsApp & Viber
