How to Hide Visit Time on WhatsApp for Everyone or Only Selected Contacts

The “was” status in WhatsApp lets people know when you were last active on the messenger. If you do not want people to know when you were last online, for privacy reasons or for any other reason, then in this guide we will show you how to hide the time of visiting in WhatsApp on iPhone.

How to hide visit time on Whatsapp from everyone

You can share your WhatsApp visit status with everyone, just your contacts, or no one.

Follow these steps to hide your WhatsApp status:

  1. Open WhatsApp and tap on Settings.
  2. Select Account.
  3. Select Privacy.
  4. Here, click ” Was(-s)”  and select  “No one “.

Now no one will be able to see when you were last online.

However, keep in mind that people will see the word “online” below your name when you are actually online. The above steps just hide your last online status, not that you are currently online.

Also, once you hide the last seen status of WhatsApp, you will also not be able to see the last seen status of other contacts, even if they have the last seen status for everyone enabled.

Hide Visit Time on WhatsApp only from selected contacts

As of April 2022, WhatsApp is still testing the ability to hide last seen time from certain contacts. There are no special settings to prevent only one or a few selected people from seeing your last seen status.

If you want to hide your WhatsApp last seen status from a specific person, you can select “My Contacts” in the instructions in step 4, this will ensure that your last seen is only visible to people in your contacts. Then save the phone number for example in the Notes app on iPhone and delete the contact. It’s not perfect, but it’s the only available way so far.

Also, if you block someone on WhatsApp, they won’t be able to see your last seen time.
