(Pocket-lint) – WhatsApp is a very useful messaging tool that makes it easy to keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues.

However, it does have some features that you think give a lot of information about what you do and when you use the app.

In chats, you’ll often see your friends’ “last seen” time or date, letting you know when they last accessed WhatsApp and if they’ve checked their messages.

If you don’t want this to apply to you, follow these simple steps to turn it off.

How to Hide Online Status on WhatsApp

This process is simple on all devices.

  1. In WhatsApp, go to the Settings menu
  2. Click Accounts
  3. Go to the privacy section
  4. Click last seen
  5. Choose “Person” from the list of options

This is the whole process, and your last seen status will now be completely hidden. As with acknowledgments, the trade-off is that you won’t be able to see other people’s “last seen” status, but this is likely a trade-off you’ll be happy to make.
