Now it will be.

First, it is worth noting that the application does not have settings to hide the active status, or “Online”. Anyone, even if they are not your contact, can see the message.

Likewise, anyone can see when you are typing a text or recording an audio. There are also no ways to hide messages denouncing your work.

Beware of external programs

There are some websites and apps that hide user status. Thus, it cannot show when you are online or sending a message.

However, for these programs to work, you need to provide data from the app and your device. This requirement does not appear to be very secure. After all, there is really no security or guarantee whatsoever.

WhatsApp does not recommend any third-party software to perform in-app actions. The goal is to ensure the security of each user’s data.
