At the moment it is impossible to hide the fact that you are online.

All you can do is hide your Last Seen status.

But the detectives at WABetaInfo have spotted a new feature “in development” that will allow you to hide when you’re online.

Evidence of the change was found in WhatsApp’s “beta” test version, which was used to test new features.

The new feature will be available under Settings > Privacy > Last Seen and Online.

WhatsApp has been criticized in the past for not allowing users to hide their online status on the app.

“There can be various reasons why people would want to use WhatsApp in stealth mode,” WABetaInfo said.

“Some users want to use WhatsApp without being disturbed by others.

“Or they feel stalked by someone.”

Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed release date for this new feature.

But keep checking your WhatsApp for updates in the coming weeks as it might give you the new feature.

Luckily, there’s another option for those who really want to try it before everyone else.

If you’d like to try it out before it’s widely rolled out, follow our guide below to join the WhatsApp beta.

How to get WhatsApp beta

To download WhatsApp Beta for your smartphone, you need to go to Google Play on your Android and search for WhatsApp.

Scroll down the page until you see “Become a Beta Tester”.

Tap the “I’m in” button, then tap “Join” to confirm.

Now all you have to do is wait for the update to the beta version of the app.

Participation in the WhatsApp Beta on iOS for iPhone is more difficult and has a limited capacity.
