The most popular and highly used messaging application ‘WhatsApp’ is planning to soon allow its users to hide last seen from a specific user. According to WaBetaInfo, “customers will probably be ready to hide their last seen WhatsApp standing from particular individuals.”
The last seen status is generally found at the top of the conversation, below the person’s name. It let us know when the person was last active. As of now, users are allowed to disable the last seen option for all of their contacts.
Currently, WhatsApp only allows setting the last seen choice to “Everyone,” “My Contacts,” and/or “Nobody”. The change in last seen active status has been seen on the beta model of WhatsApp and would be rolled out for all the users in future.
Currently, when a user disables his/her last seen on WhatsApp from a person; he/she won’t be able to see their last seen status as well. Additionally, there could also be an identical possibility underneath WhatsApp’s privateness settings for profile image and “About” info of a user.
Thus, it can be said that WhatsApp is likely to bring a complete brand new privateness setting for its users. However, sooner or later, hide last seen from a specific user feature will be rolled out.
