Preliminary information

Before we get to the heart of the tutorial and actually see how to chat on WhatsApp without being seen, I want to give you some preliminary information that you must necessarily know to get a clearer idea of ​​what to do.

First of all, I want to clarify that, at the time of writing, the only way to prevent other people from seeing your online status on WhatsApp is to block the users in question: this is a drastic measure, since it prevents the person in question from contacting you on WhatsApp (and the same goes for you), but it is the only one that is suitable for the purpose.



Otherwise, you can hide your last login and WhatsApp read receipts, but these measures won't prevent other users from seeing when you're actually online. If everything is clear to you so far, I would say we can proceed!

Hide the last login on WhatsApp

One of the first things you can do to prevent other people from tracking your WhatsApp activity is hide the last login to the service: by doing so, your contacts will not be able to know when was the last time you used the messaging platform. Before explaining how to proceed, I would like to tell you that, by hiding your last access on WhatsApp, not even you will be able to see that of your contacts. Clear? Well, then let's proceed.

If you are using a smartphone Android, go to the card Chat of WhatsApp, tap the button with i three dots posto in alto a destra and selects the voice Settings from the menu that opens. In the screen that is subsequently shown to you, presses on the items Account> Privacy, then up Last access e seleziona l'opzione Nobody.



I use a iPhone? To proceed, tap on the item Settings located at the bottom right, select the items Account> Privacy from the screen that opens, select the item Last access e seleziona l'opzione Nobody.

To restore the setting you just changed, go to Settings> Account> Privacy> Last Accessed e seleziona l'opzione My contacts to make the last access visible only to your contacts, or select the option All to make the last login visible to anyone.

By blocking a contact, in fact, you will prevent the latter from communicating with you on the famous messaging app and from seeing some of your activities, such as the last access and, above all, your online status. Let me explain how to proceed on both mobile and computer.
