Soon WhatsApp users will be able to hide ‘last seen status from specific contacts.
According to WABetaInfo the latest beta edition of the app enables test users to know when someone last opened the app and can hint if they have checked the app without responding to a message.
In the present scenario, the “last seen” setting is applicable for everyone, this means you cannot view anyone else either. While the other option available allows you to set ‘last seen’ to your contacts only and you don’t have the option to enable this for specific contact only.
The recent beta release will add “My Contacts Except…” to this list. This will enable you to block certain people from viewing your ‘last seen.’ This feature is available right now with the latest WhatsApp beta release for iOS and Android.
Such is the seriousness of privacy, this feature is bound to be grabbed with both hands. We can wait for it to be rolled onto WhatsApp soon.
