WhatsApp users should now be able to make themselves completely invisible to others.

One reason is certainly to be able to chat with others more undisturbed.

But stalking also plays a role.

Munich – In the future, users of the world's most popular messenger application, WhatsApp, will be able to make themselves invisible to other users.

As the messenger service WhatsApp announced on Twitter, the new function should be available on WhatsApp users' smartphones later this month.

This allows the user to decide who can see when they are online.

The "stealth mode" should also make it possible to stay online under the radar of visibility.

Apparently, users do not want to be disturbed by other users of the service while chatting.

But stalking also seems to play a role.

Previously, you could only turn off the "last seen" feature for specific groups.

So you had the option between "Everyone", "My Contacts" or "Nobody".

But now that is about to change.

In the future, you should be able to select individual people who may or may not see their own status, as reported by the

DerWesten.de

portal .

So it's no wonder that you can no longer see the activity of others that you switch to invisible.

WhatsApp is developing new ways to increase user privacy and security.

WhatsApp: magic cloak provides more privacy

Anyone who wants to try out the new function directly should be able to control it under their data protection settings, reports the online portal

Wabetainfo.com

.

However, the function does not yet work for everyone.

Should finally be released for all users this month.

It is important to make sure that the version of WhatsApp is up to date.

The new privacy setting gives users more control over who can see when they're using WhatsApp.

If you don't want everyone to be able to see your online presence, you can select the "As Last Seen" option.

But that's not all.

If you are not sure whether a message was a good idea, you will get even more time to think about it from the messenger service.

Previously, users had an hour to delete their messages.

That should also change in the future.
