So many of my friends asked me to give a solution to this feature i.e, how to hide or disable last seen status on WhatsApp. We have already been through this How-To guide Guide over WhatsApp using an Application. Although there is another simple method. In this article CodeMink will show you how to avoid getting “last seen” and / or prevent it from being displayed as the last access time to WhatsApp, so that your privacy is respected more.
Procedure for Android users
Android users will not have to download or install any application to prevent the access time is updated online by WhatsApp and made visible to your contacts! All you have to do when you receive a message WhatsApp will be:
- Do not open WhatsApp ;
- Switch Your Device on the Airplane mode on your Android device;
- Enter into WhatsApp and read the message;
- Now you can get out of WhatsApp and re-enable the Airplane mode!
You may be thinking how this method works? Simple! WhatsApp updates the display time whenever it finds recipient online. Enabling Airplane mode means you’re disabling the internet connection but you can still read the message because it will be received in the WhatsApp notification.
Procedure for iPhone users
iPhone users also have this technique to disable the “last seen online” WhatsApp status message. To do this, just start WhatsApp and go to Settings -> Chat Settings -> Advanced Settings and disable the date and time of the last time online . Warning: it may take up to 24 houprs to take effect the setting and another 24 hours to be able to change it again. For a tombstone, I suggest you download the tweak WhatsApp Last Seen TimeStamp (completely free) from the BigBoss repository of Cydia (and therefore you must have a Jailbreak iPhone device). The application, once installed, will allow you to enable, hide, or change the status “Last Seen” of WhatsApp.
Hide Last Seen time Using Not Last Seen App
Hiding whatsapp last seen message can be done more easily by using a app which is still not available in Google play.
