WhatsApp New Feature Is Perfect For Keeping Secrets

WhatsApp has added a special “hidden mode” that lets you hide things from contacts.

It’s a great way to keep some of your info secret from very specific people.

WhatsApp revealed the new feature in a tweet

WhatsApp revealed the new feature.

Other apps – including fellow Meta-owned favourite Instagram – offer similar features.

With the new update, you’ll be able to hide your profile picture, Last Seen status, and About page.

And you’ll be able to choose those settings for Everyone, My Contacts, My Contacts Except and Nobody.

So you might want to keep Last Seen on for your partner or family – but turn it off for any nagging friends or colleagues.

It’s a great way to wrest control over your WhatsApp privacy in a more fine-tuned way.

“To further protect your privacy online, we’re rolling out new options to your privacy control settings,” WhatsApp explained.

“Now you can select who from your contact list can see your Profile Photo, About, and Last Seen status.”

Sadly, there is a catch.

When you stop someone from looking at your personal info, you’ll also be blocked from viewing theirs.

Check your Apple App Store or Google Play Store for the latest updates.
