WhatsApp just announced that it will soon allow you to hide your online status. In simple words, you will soon be able to use WhatsApp without your boss or an annoying friend, or even your boyfriend who stalks you all day knowing that you are online. That’s such a relief. Isn’t it?

Well, as soon as the company announced the feature, some of my colleagues from non-tech beats walked up to me all excited to know more about the feature and its rollout timeline, and how it will actually work. So, not just me, but most WhatsApp users were waiting for this feature.

Until now, WhatsApp did offer some kind of privacy but not so much. It already lets users hide their last seen, blue tick, profile photo, and status from people they find fishy and irritating. But, unfortunately, the main problem was the ‘online’ status. This must have happened to everyone. I am sure. Even though you tried ignoring some people, especially those who spoil your week offs by messaging you random things, they find out that you are active on WhatsApp but ignoring them. With the upcoming online status hiding feature, that problem will be resolved for life.

So, whenever you come online, WhatsApp shows your status as ‘online’. Soon, you will have a way to hide that even when you are online and chatting with your best friend.

Ahead of the official release, WhatsApp detailed how this feature will actually work. So, you will have two options, “everyone” and “same as last seen”. Now that means that you can choose to share your online status either with everyone or hide it from specific people, as you may like. It will work similarly to the last seen setting.

It should be noted that the online status hiding feature will be officially available a month from now. WhatsApp has confirmed that the new privacy feature is currently in the testing stage and will roll out in a phased manner. This means that some users may get the feature before others. So, you will need to wait for some more time. But, I guess it is worth the wait.

WhatsApp already offers privacy features like hiding last seen and status and even profile photos. These features help hide your online presence, but the new online status hiding feature is definitely the one that I have been personally waiting for. And you too, right?
