WhatsApp begs to hide online status

WhatsApp recently announced the launch of a new feature that allows hiding online status for some lucky beta testers. Once the feature is publicly available, they can choose from various options to toggle their privacy settings.

Users just need to open WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy and if you see “Last seen and online” then the feature is already available for your account. And if available, you can choose who will see your last seen and online in your contacts list.


However, WhatsApp did not say when it will release the new feature to the public. They have to wait longer and keep a tab on its updates.
