How to view status of others in Whatsapp without letting them know

To view a WhatsApp contact's status but secretly, without letting them know that you actually have seen their status before it disappeared? Whatsapp and photo-sharing app Instagram, that have the feature of uploading stories for a period of 24 hours, the popular messaging app too has the status update feature enabled for its users.

There are instances where you might want to check someone’s status and not let them know - just as it might happen on Facebook or Instagram. And there is a simple way to do it.

All you need to do to keep your profile from popping up on someone’s status checked-list os by turning off the Read receipt.

Go to Settings, click on ‘Privacy’ and turn off the Read receipts.

Now if you check someone’s status, he/she will not be able to see your name on the list of people. Easy.

Like it is with turning off Read receipts that removes the double blue tick from your messages, it also disappears for all your chats and you don’t get to know if others have read your messages or now - the same also happens for the WhatsApp status.

If you turn Read receipts off, you will also not be able to see who all have checked your status.

So you need to decide what’s important to you and then take the plunge. Of course it’s as easy to undo it as it is to do it. You can always go back into your settings and turn on Read receipts for things to return to normal.
