WhatsApp is the most used chat app in the world, and with new advancements it has been able to keep its place even amidst the fiercest of competition. If you are not changing the settings of your app profile, anyone in your contacts will be able to see your last-viewed details, your status, read receipts and profile photo. If you don’t want that to happen, the app provides you options to hide your status on WhatsApp.
Step By Step Guide For Hiding WhatsApp Status
Step 1: The first step would be to open the main screen of WhatsApp where your chat list is shown. You now need to move to the menu button where a list of options is shown. Choose Settings from the list. The menu option is generally shown with the three dots icon.
Step 2: The next step would be to select Account and then move to Privacy.
Step 3: The Privacy setting will have Last Seen, Profile Photo, Status and more. In case of default setting, Everyone is selected. Choose Nobody if you don’t want anyone to see your status, last seen timestamp and your photo. If you want your contacts to get these updates, then just use My Contacts.
It’s quite easy to choose if you want to hide your WhatsApp status or not. The same steps are applicable for iDevices, Android, and Windows phones. WhatsApp brings a whole new world of connectivity and opportunity to its users at a minimum cost. However, every good thing has its own baggage but thankfully in the case of WhatsApp, the baggage can be unloaded.
