Do you want to protect your instant messaging conversations? Here are some ways to hide your WhatsApp status.


It is difficult to remember when SMS was used in the past. WhatsApp and other messaging services have made it easier to chat with family and friends.

But, this ease of communication comes at a cost. Now, we expect to be able see if the recipient is online so that you can read your messages right away.

WhatsApp makes it easy to disable your online status. However, there is a trade-off we’ll discuss in the article.

Follow these steps to hide your WhatsApp status online:

  1. Open WhatsApp
  2. Click the three vertical dots at the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Click on Settings.
  4. Select Account from the Settings Menu.
  5. Next, click on Privacy.
  6. Select Last Seen in the list.
  7. Choose No One in the pop-up window.

What about the trade-off? You can’t see the online status of other users if you disable your online status. This prevents users from spying on others while simultaneously masking their actions.

Unfortunately, you can’t control the visibility of your online status from a user-by–user basis. It’s not possible to tell your family or friends that you are online, but also stop your boss from seeing this information. You can only do this by blocking them on WhatsApp. However, you won’t have the ability to contact each other.
