Whatsapp has slowly taken over the instant messaging world. In order to facilitate people, it has introduced a number of features, like the various types of ticks that indicate the status of a message that you have sent or the ability for others to see when you last logged onto WhatsApp to use it.
In order to facilitate people, it has introduced a number of features, like the various types of ticks that indicate the status of a message that you have sent or the ability for others to see when you last logged onto WhatsApp to use it.
But all of these features have also turned into a source of annoyance for those who are constantly stalked and nagged by others. If you are one of those unlucky ones, here is a way you can get rid of the “last seen time” on WhatsApp.
WhatsApp on iOS
The latest version of WhatsApp for the iOS has already been updated so that users have the choice to switch this feature on or off.
If you are using a device with an iOS and fail to see this feature on WhatsApp, it’s probably because your version has not updated automatically, make sure you are using the latest version before you start worrying needlessly.
Once you open WhatsApp, you have to enter into the settings panel which can be accessed from the menu option. You then need to press the option labeled ‘Advanced’ and from there on you can switch off the “last seen timestamp”.
WhatsApp on Android
This feature was made available for updated versions on android also, far earlier than it was made available for iOS. Whatsapp versions 2.11.169 and those after them all come with the innate ability to have their last seen timestamp hidden.
You need to open the settings menu on your WhatsApp and then navigate onto the tab labeled accounts. From there you need to go to the labeled marked Privacy and from there you can easily switch off the last seen on the time stamp option.
To manually switch off the WhatsApp last seen on time you can disable your wifi or data packet before you open the WhatsApp page. This hack will ascertain that the last seen on time does not get updated.
There you have it, ways for you to use WhatsApp without being needlessly stalked by others.
