WhatsApp’s new privacy measures stop stalkers from seeing your last seen

A new WhatsApp security update has been rolled out for users. WhatsApp privacy policy is all about ensuring end-to-end encryption for users’ chats and also to provide ways to hide status, profile picture and more. In one such privacy-driven development, meta-owned instant messaging app has now enabled a new privacy feature for its users.

The new measure will ensure that an unknown WhatsApp contact, with whom you have never chatted, will not be able to see your last seen and online status.

The information comes from WABetaInfo, which shared an email response from the WhatsApp customer support. The email confirms that the new privacy features are now effective for all WhatsApp contacts – including business accounts, “making it harder for people you don’t know and haven’t chatted with from seeing your last seen and online presence on WhatsApp.”

Unlike many other WhatsApp features that can be turned on and off by users, these new privacy settings that affect who can see or cannot see a user’s online status are supposed to work automatically. What this means is that WhatsApp will rollout the feature on the backend side of the app and that users, at least according to information available right now, will not have to do anything.

Given that this is a backend change, it is also not clear when WhatsApp will fully roll it out. In a way, it is a little confusing for users at the moment. So don’t go looking into WhatsApp settings to change anything at the moment.
