Personally, I would like to ensure maximum privacy in order to veil my personal account on WhatsApp from unwanted and prying eyes. There’s no specific button for turning your WhatsApp account invisible, unlike that of Google Talk; as a result, follow the instructions if you wish to turn your account invisible from others.
Ensure greater privacy on WhatsApp with the following methods.
Uncheck the last seen
By unchecking this option, you will not be obligated to reply to messages instantly. Go to the settings option for turning it off. Alternate the last seen option to “nobody” and no one will find out when was the last time you were on WhatsApp.
Hide your picture
If you’re afraid of stalkers that may try to download your profile picture, then you could head over to
Settings > Privacy > Profile Photo and check into “Nobody.”
Why should they know if I have read their messages or not?
The purpose of blue ticks is to make the sender of any message aware of others after reading it; however, you’re not entitled to answer to anybody unless you really want to. Therefore, if you want those blue ticks to get vanished entirely, head over to
Account > Privacy > Uncheck
If your mind is on the edge and the constant bombardment of messages in your WhatsApp account is driving your crazy, then there is a proper method to block incoming messages temporarily. To do this, simply go to
Settings > Apps > WhatsApp > Force Stop.
Also remember that all these methods have been integrated into this system to ensure greater privacy on WhatsApp for its users. Be a responsible user and make sure others are also using these social messaging apps responsibly as well.
