WhatsApp since its first release has come a long way in providing the perfect alternative to SMS services and may be one of the most popular messenger apps out there in the online social world today. From texting a simple message to your loved ones, to sending important attachments to your office colleagues, to sharing some awesome videos and images with your friends and families. This app does it all. But, with all these amazing features there is still one particular thing about this app which many of us might wish wasn’t there all the time i.e. the feature where others can see your last seen whenever you are connected to the internet.
This feature can sometimes be really annoying since at times you just want to stay online but not want to reply to the other person. It is very obvious actually and there is no need to feel guilty about it. Still, once the other person knows that you are online and sends you a text, it becomes somewhat impolite if you don’t reply to him or her even though you don’t want to. In such cases, it becomes really necessary for a way to show offline. And, hence today I will be showing you such a method which you can use to do that.
Steps to Hide Last Seen on WhatsApp:
This is the simplest and most recommended method you can make use of in order to show yourself offline at all times or whenever you don’t feel like appearing online. There is no need of installing any extra software or make use of any kind of hacks. Installing extra software or making use of cracks and hacks is strongly opposed by WhatsApp and following which may block your WhatsApp account for a life time. Hence, it is advised that you resort to no such options unless it is very important or required.
Anyways, let us start off with the recommended method which we can use to stay offline.
- In the very first step, you will need to go to the 3 dot option menu at the top-right side of the screen as shown below.
- Then we will need to go to the “Settings” option. After which we will need to select the “Account” option.
- Once we are in the Account menu, we will need to go to the “Privacy” option as you can see below.
- Then after getting in the Privacy menu, now we must select on the “Last Seen” option and select the “Nobody” option.
Thus, in this way, no one will be able to know when you came online last and would save you off the unnecessary need to justify your self.
