WhatsApp already allows you to hide the “Online” status

Users of the beta version of WhatsApp can now hide this status of the messaging application

WhatsApp began rolling out to some beta users a new feature that allows them to hide their “Online” connection status within the instant messaging app.

The CEO of Meta Platforms, Mark Zuckerberg, announced last August the arrival of new functions to the app. Among these, the possibility of selecting who can and who cannot see when a user is connected was announced.

Now, several specialized portals have confirmed the deployment of this new feature among certain participants in the beta of the instant messaging application for Android, in versions 2.22.20.9 and 2.22.20.7.

Thanks to it, users will be able to configure from the app Settings which contacts they give access to, both at the time of their last connection and whether they are online or not.

Both permissions go hand in hand, and it is the user’s decision to create a list with those contacts to whom they want to grant this permission to further protect their privacy.
