Courier WhatsApp A new privacy feature has been released for all app users.
Soon, people you haven’t added to your contact list or people who have never received a message from you will no longer be able to see certain details about your reach. More specifically, they won’t be able to see whether you’re currently online or when you last opened the app.
As confirmed by one user of the service’s support, the novelty applies to both normal contacts and commercial accounts.
This is a new security feature. Got this answer from support today. Last seen/online doesn’t show up if that person hasn’t found your number in their contacts, or hasn’t sent a message between you. pic.twitter.com/qLPtC6rPOA

This feature is a new layer of privacy to prevent out-of-time charges, for example, or eavesdropping and stalking. As a result, apps that collect this information almost automatically – and that exist in the Google Play Store, even if they have such a controversial role – will no longer work.
This feature will be enabled by default, i.e. without the need for any configuration by the user. It differs from the system in that, few months ago, was under testing for the desktop version of Messenger. According to the company, nothing will change between the chats you already have with friends and family.
according to website WABetaInfo, In recent days the function for the WhatsApp application has started to be released Android I iOS, which means that the entire community will soon have this protection.
