How to Hide Online Status On WhatsApp (2022)

WhatsApp usually shows your contacts when you use its platform. It may cause your contacts to start chatting with you even when you do not want to chat. For example, when you are reading some messages on WhatsApp and one of your contacts assumes you are available for chatting.

Such instances are common and are likely to annoy you. Luckily, there are ways to stop getting into such situations. WhatsApp lets you hide your online status from specific people. You can even make your online status invisible from all of your contacts.

I will show you how you can hide your online status on WhatsApp.

Step7: Decide who can see and know about your online presence on WhatsApp. For instance, you can choose Everyone, My contacts, Nobody, etc.

If you want to hide your WhatsApp presence from everyone, select the Nobody option. On the other hand, if you only want to hide your online status from selected people, choose “My contacts except…”. Then select the names of people from whom you want to hide your online status. 

Please note that when you hide your online presence from someone, you also become unable to see their online presence. Disabling online status on WhatsApp works in both directions.
