Typically, your online status and last online can be viewed by your friends. You can choose to hide your status now, if you don’t want your friends to know your current status. Due to personal reasons, ranging from just coming online to read messages probably due to a busy work schedule, to wanting to keep people from knowing when you have read their messages, to just wanting to keep privacy online. The following are steps to follow to hide your WhatsApp status:
- Open WhatsApp, you would see three little dots in the top right corner, tap it and select Settings option (in Android supported phones) or tap Settings in the bottom bar on iOS supported products.
- Click on Account and then tap Privacy option
- Select the Last seen entry and then tap the Nobody option.
- Voila! Currently, no one can see when you were last online on Whatsapp. Remember also that with this feature active on your WhatsApp application, you also would not be able to see other people’s online status. If you would wish to know when others are online then they’d also need to know when you’re online, pretty reasonable conditions right?
