The most annoying thing about WhatsApp Messenger is that you cannot ignore anyone’s message even if you don’t wish to talk to that person at that instance. This is so because that person gets to know that you are online at that time.
This feature was built-in the messenger app to help people to know whether the person is active or available for chat or not, but it has it’s own disadvantages as well.
In it’s latest update, WhatsApp Messenger have provided it’s users an option to hide the Last Seen Timestamp if they wish to. Doing so, no one will be able to see when you were last online but even you won’t be able to see anyone’s last seen timestamp. We think that this is fair enough on the company’s part!
To Hide Last Seen on iPhone, follow these simple steps:
1. Open WhatsApp Messenger on your device and go to Settings.
2. Tap on Chat Settings and go to the Advanced option.
3. Toggle Last Seen Timestamp to OFF.
Please wait for atleast 24 hours for the change to take effect.
And you can easily hide last seen on iPhone!
UPDATE- Now you can easily hide last seen timestamp on your Android phone! This feature was rolled out after WhatsApp Messenger was acquired by Facebook Inc.
Android users with the latest software updated (v2.11.169) can now choose who can see their profile photo, last seen time stamp and status message.
To Hide Last Seen on Android, follow these simple steps:
1. Go to Settings>Account>Privacy.
2. Click on ‘Last seen‘ and change to Nobody. You can also change your profile photo and status settings here.
And you can easily hide last seen on Android!
