Top 3 WhatsApp Privacy Tricks You Didn't Know About

There are so many WhatsApp tricks out there that you probably didn't know about. From hiding your online status, removing the double tick to freezing your last seen.

In this list, I will show you 3 simple WhatsApp Privacy tricks that you can you use every day to help you stop people from evading your privacy.

Removing The Double Tick

Removing the double tick is one of the ways to make people not know whether you actually received their messages or not. Having them see only a single tick will make dem believe that you didn't even receive their message.

To remove the double tick, you first have to install a WhatsApp GB. WhatsApp GB is a modified version of WhatsApp which gives you more room for settings that do not exist on the original WhatsApp.

To remove the double tick, open your WhatsApp GB and click on the menu at the top right corner. From there, you click on "GB Settings".

From there, click on "Privacy And Security"

After that, click on "Contacts"

Then finally, check the "Hide Second Tick" check box.

That is it. Whenever your contacts send you messages, they will only see a single tick which will indicate that you probably didn't receive their messages.

Hide Online Status

Hiding online status is one of the many things you won't get in the original WhatsApp as well. This is different from hiding your Last Seen. To hide your online Status means even if you are online, the online under your name will not appear on your contact.

To hide it, you still have to use GB WhatsApp. Go to settings>>> GB Settings>>> Privacy And Security>>> Turn on the Last Seen button.

This will freeze your Last Seen. The date you turned this on will always show as your last seen even if you are online.

Hide And Lock Chats With Password

This is key when people like going through your chats especially your husband or wife. You might not be cheating but some of the chats might be so real that you wouldn't want them to see. This is how to hide those chats.

To hide chats, tap and hold to select the chat you want to hide. Click on the menu and select hide chat.

After clicking on "Hide Chats" for the first time, you will be asked to choose Pincode or Password that you will use to lock the chat. If you enter the code or password, the chat will disappear from all the other chats.

To open the chat again, just tap on the Whats App icon. like in the image below.

You will be prompted to enter your Pincode or Password. When you enter, it will open the hidden chats and from there, you can check all the messages from the hidden chats.
