By Sneha Saha: WhatsApp has launched many new features for users this year. Some are great, and then there are some that are not so useful. One of the best features that the instant messaging platform introduced this year is the option to hide its online status.

The hide online status feature is now available for all users, including iOS as well as Android. The feature lets users hide their WhatsApp online status from anyone they want. One can disable and enable the feature when one want. Now, if you wish to stay online on WhatsApp, but do not want anyone to know about it, there’s a way. The following are some steps that you can follow:

Step 1 : First, update the WhatsApp app

Step 2 : Open WhatsApp and go to the Setting tab

Step 3 : Go to privacy

Step 4 : Next, click on Last Seen and Online Status option

Step 5 : To hide your online presence from a specific someone, simply click on Nobody option.

So, you can click on the Nobody option that comes under Last Seen tab and then click on "Same as Last Seen" option shown on the same screen.

The good thing is, there are four options – Everyone, My contacts, Nobody and My contacts except. What do these options mean for users? Let’s explain

--So, if you click on the "Everyone" option, your online status will not be hidden from anyone.

--The "My contacts" option will hide your online status from everyone who is not on your contact list.

--The "Nobody" option will basically hide your online status from everyone and nobody will be able to see when you come online or chat with someone else and ignore someone else.

--Lastly, the "My contacts except" option will let users hide their online status from specific people while others will be able to see when they come online.

With the hide online status feature, users will be easily able to stay online without anyone knowing about it. This feature mainly helps in situation when you are trying to ignore someone’s message on WhatsApp.

This year, WhatsApp has focused a lot on the privacy of users. The company introduced several new privacy-oriented features including – leave groups silently, screenshot blocking for view once messages, accidentally delete, and more. The recently launched accidentally delete feature lets users undo the messages that they have deleted accidentally. The instant messaging platform also launched features like Communities, avatars, emoji reactions, and more. (India Today)
