Hiding the last seen on WhatsApp is an option present precisely since it is possible to show it. In this way, the application gives you a tool to protect your privacy by preventing your contacts from knowing when you last opened WhatsApp, although you won’t be able to see when they did it either.
However, hiding the date and time of your last seen on WhatsApp doesn’t mean you’re hiding your online status. If you’re connected, everyone will be able to see that you’re online, although once you close the app no one will be able to know when it was the last time you had it open. We explain how to hide your last seen on WhatsApp.
How to Hide your Last Seen on WhatsApp
- Open WhatsApp;
- Select the Menu and Settings;
- Go to the Account > Privacy section;
- Select Last Seen, you’ll see different options;
- To hide your last seen status, select nobody.
Now, only you can see your last seen on WhatsApp but you won’t see others last seen. It is a fair trade off.
