    How to see statuses on WhatsApp without being seen on Android

    In case you use a device with the mobile operating system of Google and you would like see the statuses of your friends or the person concerned without getting caught, then you just need to follow some simple steps that we list below:


    • Identify the icon of WhatsApp on the main screen or in the drawer and press on it to start the app.
    • Once this is done, tap on 3 dots located at the top right, choose Settings and then tap on Account.
    • Now, press on Privacy and uncheck the box next to Read confirmations. From now on you can view the statuses posted by your contacts without being seen.

    We wanted to clarify that by disabling this functionality of WhatsApp, you will no longer be able to know if contacts are reading your sent messages (except those written on groups). Other than that, you will no longer be able to get to know the people who have seen your states.
