Soon You will be Able to Hide Your Online Now Status on WhatsApp

WhatsApp will allow users to completely shield their ‘now online’ status from others.


The ‘now online’ status now appears automatically for every WhatsApp user as soon as they open the app. But WABetaInfo discovered that WhatsApp wants to change that.

Users would soon be able to protect their ‘now online’ status, but on the other hand, they will no longer be able to view the online status of others.

WhatsApp also uses this approach for other privacy options, such as the ‘last seen’ function. There you can already set who sees that info: everyone, your contacts, nobody, or ‘my contacts, except…’.

It is not yet clear when the new privacy option will be introduced. WABetaInfo knows that the feature is not yet included in the beta version of WhatsApp, so it could take a while.
