The reasons may vary depending on each case, but nobody can doubt that it is extremely useful to have at hand techniques to use WhatsApp without appearing online. Yes, although it may seem extreme, the external control some users may have includes that touch of psychosis in surveillance.
Privacy for everyone
This is the most effective solution, since your contacts will not be able to see the time of your last connection or even if you are connected, and they will not have access to the message confirmation either. But when you activate this mode you will also lose these privileges in relation to other users.
To complete this process, you must only open WhatsApp, go to “Settings”, next to “Account” and then to “Privacy”. Once at this point, choose the section “Last Seen”, and select “Nobody” can have access to it. Additionally, there’s also the option to deselect the section “Read Receipts” in “Privacy”.
The airplane mode lands to save the day
This is a highly undervalued functionality for many users, and is at the distance of a couple of taps on the screen. If you access to WhatsApp in airplane mode, you will be able to read all the messages you want without appearing online, and the recipient will get read confirmation when you return and enable your mobile connection.
Emerged notifications: perfect for short cases
This practical tool implemented by the application’s developers is perfect for reading messages without appearing connected. You only have to extend the tab of the emergent notifications every time that a message arrives and, whenever these stay in short extension, you will be able to review them without appearing “online”.
