Soon, people you didn’t add to your contact list or people who never received a message from you won’t be able to see some details about your access. More specifically, they won’t be able to tell if you’re currently online or the last time you opened the app.
As confirmed by the service support to the user, the novelty applies to both regular contacts and business accounts.
It is a new security feature. I got this reply from support today. If the person did not have your number in their contacts, or you did not send a single message between you, the last seen / online is no longer visible. pic.twitter.com/qLPtC6rPOA
