WhatsApp will let you hide your ‘last seen’ status from specific contacts soon.
With the latest update of the iOS app, WhatsApp has added an option that allows users to limit specific individuals from seeing their ‘Last Seen’ status.
The Meta-backed instant messaging platform is looking forward to implementing this overdue feature.
This feature indicates when someone has last checked WhatsApp, which means one can know if a recipient has intentionally chosen not to read the message or read with reading receipts turned off and not replied.
Switching off the last seen status is seen as a privacy feature where you choose to allow your contacts to know when you last used the app.
For a while now, WhatsApp has allowed you to limit who sees your status to only your contacts. You can also disable the feature altogether, but in such case, you won’t be able to see the last seen of your contacts as well and even not the read status with blue ticks.
With the new feature update, the users will have the ability to prevent specific individuals from seeing that information.
