With that in mind, here are three ways to chat on WhatsApp and stay hidden forever! How to Chat on WhatsApp and Stay Hidden Forever
A glimpse into the functions of Whatsapp
Whatsapp has more than 700 million users worldwide as of May 2014. In fact, it is one of the largest Internet companies in terms of number of users. There are a variety of reasons for its popularity. It is accessible from almost any device with an Internet connection, from smartphones to computers.
What makes Whatsapp so popular?
Whatsapp is one of most popular messaging apps that have over 1.5 billion active users, making it more popular than even some social media websites such as Twitter! Whatsapp’s popularity stems from its simplicity as a messaging app: it does not require its users to use their real names or phone numbers.
Some less known features of Whatsapp
Everyone knows about Whatsapp but not many people know that it has a few interesting features that you can use in order to stay hidden. If you’re using Whatsapp for any personal purpose, then it’s highly recommended that you follow these steps mentioned below so that no one can see your chats on WhatsApp.
How can I contact hidden users?
By default, if you’re not friends with someone, you can’t contact them via WhatsApp. However, there are ways to chat with hidden users. If you’re a private detective or law enforcement professional, using these methods may be relevant for your job. Otherwise, try not contacting people who aren’t your friends!
Download latest version of Whatsapp
It’s been a while since we last covered how to hide your status on WhatsApp, but a new method has come up in time for Christmas. There’s an easy trick that allows you to stay invisible when communicating with friends and family, no matter what version of WhatsApp you have installed. The ultimate goal is for them not even knowing whether you are online or offline. What’s more – it does not require root access!
Change profile picture when chatting privately with friends
You might want to hide your profile picture when chatting with friends, because if someone can see it, they could possibly recognize you. It is also a good idea to keep your profile picture hidden when chatting with people you have never met before. This way no one will know who you are or what you look like. If someone is being annoying while chatting with you then consider changing your name as well. You don’t need to do that but it is a very useful option in case anyone gets too aggressive online.
Change status message when chatting privately with friends
When you’re chatting with friends privately, there are two ways to keep your chat screen hidden from prying eyes. The first is simple: in your Settings, set Status message to Do not disturb. That way, no one will see what you type when you hit Chat. But that setting isn’t quite private enough for some of us—we don’t want anyone knowing we even have a chat window open at all.
Get it done! (for Android devices)
If you are having issues chatting on WhatsApp without showing your online status all you need to do is get Get it done! from Google Play. Once you install it open up your settings, go into Security and scroll down until you see Get It Done! Add a shortcut by tapping Edit which will bring you directly here: Settings > Security > Device Administrators > Get It Done!. After that select Add Account.
Get it done! (for iPhone users)
iOS has a built-in feature that allows you to hide photos, but not text messages. To hide text chats, simply send yourself a message from your own phone number. This trick is similar to creating fake text messages between two people in order to hide texts from an ex-partner or crush. First, you’ll need a second phone number (ideally one with a local area code). Then, send yourself an iMessage.
