Meta-owned instant messaging app WhatsApp is developing a new feature that would allow users to hide their online status, according to WABetainfo. According to the WhatsApp news tracker, the platform is working on the ability to hide the online status.

Following a beta rollout in April, the Whatsapp released an update that added a “My Contacts Except” setting, allowing for more control over who can see when you last checked the app. The problem with WhatsApp’s Last Seen status was that it gave contacts a way to find out if you had seen their message even if you turned off read receipts.

WABetaInfo shared screenshot, the new online status feature will allow users to hide online status the same people who you don’t want to see your Last Seen Status. It’s surprising it has taken this long for WhatsApp to start work on such a basic privacy feature, Now that's finally on the way, it’s something many users sure to appreciate.
