How to be completely anonymous in WhatsApp?
The WABetaInfo portal specializes in spreading the news of WhatsApp in its beta version. According to the data, Messenger now has a feature that allows you to hide notifications and guarantee anonymous browsing.
This means that no notification will be sent that you are online or when you last viewed the message. However, the novelty is available only in the beta version of the application – it is reserved for testing new features.
If you want to use this feature then you have to install WhatsApp beta. Otherwise, you still have to wait for some time to become anonymous within the app. Soon, the tool will be rolled out to the entire common user base.
Take this opportunity to look at some alternative ways to achieve anonymity:
There are some websites and apps that hide user status. So it is not possible to show when you are online or sending messages. However, for these software to work, you must provide data from the application and your device. So beware that none of these tools are recommended or approved by the messaging platform.
Still, if you want to risk it, there is the Unseen app, which allows you to read messages from various social networks and WhatsApp. It is possible to make the necessary authorization in the settings.
Another tool available is the Flychat app which has a similar function to the previous one. You can read and reply to the message only through the optional app.
Even if there is no specific configuration within Messenger, it is possible to read messages without going “online”. Incidentally, it is also possible to type and record “hidden” messages.
The first trick to reading a conversation without reporting it online is through notifications. To read the messages available on WhatsApp, simply scroll down the notification bar.
In Airplane Mode you can read all the messages and listen to the audios that have already been downloaded. All this without changing your position. In fact, it is even possible to type and record messages without the contact knowing.
In this case, messages will be sent as soon as the connection is re-established. In other words, anonymity is guaranteed.
