Tips and Tricks: How to hide the last seen on WhatsApp for iPhone

Hey, friends! Do you use WhatsApp to text your friends? Did you know that you can hide your “Last Seen” status from your contacts and other users? Fortunately, this privacy setting is pretty easy to access within the app.

For those people who are not aware, Last Seen is a feature that’s available on WhatsApp which gives users information on when someone last opened the application or used the service. It shows up right below the contact’s name or phone number in a conversation. Although this is a nice feature to have, privacy buffs would rather want to keep this turned off, so that others have little to no idea regarding their WhatsApp activity.
