At the moment it is impossible to hide the fact that you are online.

All you can do is hide your Last Seen status.

But the sniffer dogs on WABetaInfo have spotted a new feature “in development” that will allow you to hide when you are online.

Evidence of the change was found in WhatsApp’s “beta” test version, which was used to test new features.

The new feature will be available under Settings > Privacy > Last Seen and Online.

WhatsApp has been criticized in the past for not allowing users to hide their online status on the app.

“There can be various reasons why people would want to use WhatsApp in stealth mode,” WABetaInfo said.

“Some users want to use WhatsApp without being disturbed by others.

“Or they feel stalked by someone.”

Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed release date for this new feature.

It’s not even in a proper beta test yet, so it could take weeks or even months before it’s released to the general public.
