How To Hide Your Online Status On WhatsApp

By Daha Tijjani Abdurrahaman, PhD.

Over the last few weeks, WhatsApp has made a number of updates and added a number of new features. One such update was the option to hide your online status from friends or people you don’t want to have access to it.

You can choose whether or not to share your online status on WhatsApp using the new “Who can see when I was online” option. It does, however, function with the last-seen status feature. When you choose the option “Same as the last seen” and choose the “Nobody” option for your last seen, the same settings will be applied to your online status. Here’s how you can use this feature and turn it on for yourself in your WhatsApp settings:

1. Launch WhatsApp on your device, then click the three vertical dots in the top right corner to open the menu.

2. Select the Privacy option from the Settings menu.

3. After that, select Last Seen and Online.

4. In Who Can See My Last Seen Status, select Nobody, My Contacts, or My Contacts Except… as per your choice.

5. Next, select “Same as the last seen” under the “Who can see when online” option.

That’s all there is to it; it’s as easy as ABC.
