You Will Soon Be Able To Choose Who Can View Your “Last Seen” On WhatsApp
One of the most requested features on WhatsApp will soon be available for users! The messaging platform is reportedly working on improving its privacy settings, which will allow users to hide their “Last Seen” status from selected contacts.
According to Wabetainfo, WhatsApp is working on giving users the choice to choose which contacts will and will not be able to see their “Last Seen” status, which in fact shows when a user was last active on the app as well as profile picture and “About” information.
Apparently, WhatsApp may be adding a “My contacts except…” option, which will enable users to pick contacts they want to share this information with. According to screenshots shared by Wabetainfo, the feature is currently being tested on the iOS version of WhatsApp, but it should be rolled out to Android users as well.
We don’t know when WhatsApp decides to release this new update, but it is definitely a good step up for their privacy settings.
