One of the options that most worries WhatsApp users is privacy since, being a messaging service, the person's activity is exposed whenever they open the application

.

For some, letting others know if the other ever read their messages or received them, represents a problem.

Luckily, there are

tricks to read our messages and not appear as connected.

In WhatsApp it

is configured by default so that all contacts can see the last time one has connected.

To modify it, just go to Settings and click on Privacy, where you can select who remains visible.

If one selects 'Nobody', no person will be able to know the status.

Nor will the famous blue 'double check' appear that confirms that the messages were received.

In addition, WhatsApp has a web version, frequently used when working from the computer.

Thus, it is possible to access the application through a QR code.

The web version works in the same way as the one used on the mobile device, that is

, when a message is clicked it is marked as read and if it is active you appear online.

Read unopened

However, it

is possible to read the messages without opening the conversation and without the contacts knowing that one is in online mode.

The WhatsApp Web interface allows you to see on the left a list with all active chats and on the right the conversation that has been selected.

To be able to read the messages in hidden mode,

all you have to do is position the cursor over the conversation that is not read and a small label will appear where you can read what the contact wrote

.

Of course, only the last message can be read.

Another strategy used, always before opening the application,

is to put Airplane Mode on the device.

In this way, connections will be disabled and messages can be checked

without being seen, keeping the last connection time hidden.

Out of line

Another trick with less preparation is the response from the notifications.

This update, available for a couple of years,

allows you to read the latest messages received and reply to those messages simply by displaying the menu that appears with the notification

.

When answering from this lock screen, there is no online status at any time.

WhatsApp gives us the option of being able to use and customize its own widget so that it appears on our Home.

When selected, a small 4x2 box will appear showing those messages that have not been read and without, without appearing online.

To achieve a permanent concealment, third-party applications can be used to facilitate the concealment task.

Among the most popular are Unseen,

a tool that allows you to unify all the messaging trays into one to be able to read them incognito without leaving a trace that we have done it

.

In addition, it is also compatible with other apps, such as Instagram.

Another recommendation is

Private Reading by WhatsApp, which is guided by notifications to display messages, allowing us to respond without registering

our last connection time.
