The option to “discard” suggested contacts in your chat list is rolling out to users. We will be making further changes to make suggested contacts more relevant for new users in the future as well, so marking as partially completed. Thanks for your patience with this one.

Add the option to remove/hide a suggested contact, this is IMPORTANT! Like others, the user should have the choice to not see the name of someone who has caused harm to them in the past. Seeing a particular name in a suggested contact list gives me panic attacks and I should have the option of blocking that contact, which is available in most other social media platforms.
