WHATSAPP is expected to introduce a long-overdue feature that would allow users to block certain people from seeing when they were last online.
For now, the popular messaging platform only has three options, but a fourth we’ve all been waiting for is currently in the works.
That Last seen feature does what it promises – it shows contacts when you last opened WhatsApp.
Everyone is one of the three current options, which means even those who aren’t with you with approved contacts can see your Last Seen.
“My Contacts” keeps it visible only to friends and family you already have saved on your phone.
And “Nobody” hides the last seen from absolutely everyone.
But for some time now, users have been clamoring for a way to hide last seen from selected contacts only, such as: B. An annoying friend or a stubborn family member who won’t leave you alone.
According to the latest leaked screenshot of WABetaInfoour dreams could finally come true.
Weeks after tests were found on Android, developers at Meta are now trying it on iOS for iPhone as well.
The addition appears as “My contacts except…” in the privacy settings.
There’s a catch, though: if you prevent someone from seeing your recently seen messages, you won’t be able to see theirs either.
If you want to take your privacy a step further, you can also block selected users from seeing your profile photo and description.
As always with beta testing, WhatsApp may well decide not to pursue the idea any further.
But see how they have been look at it for a while Now we can assume the bosses are seriously considering it, and hopefully it will come out for everyone soon.
