WHATSAPP is making it possible to be much more stealthy on the chat app.
Two major changes will allow you to navigate through the app unseen.
微信 is known for its encrypted chats that block snoopers from reading messages in transit – but the app isn’t perfect.
There are two big flaws that can be very frustrating for stealthy users.
The first is that fact that you can’t hide your online status.
If you’re online on the app, your contacts can see that’s the case.

The new feature will be available in Settings > Privacy > Last Seen & 在线的.
WhatsApp has been criticised in the past for not allowing users to hide their online statuses on the 应用程序.
“There may be different reasons why people want to use WhatsApp in stealth mode,” said WABetaInfo.
“Some users want to use WhatsApp without being disturbed by other people.
“Or they feel stalked by someone.”
The second problem is that if you leave a group chat, everyone will know.
But WhatsApp is also developing a feature that lets you silently exit groups, as spotted by WABetaInfo.
Maybe it’s a chat that’s old but keeps being revived, one that has too many people, or a conversation that’s very active but you simply don’t care.
With the new change, you can leave groups without an alert appearing.
Only the group admins would be notified, but not normal members of the group.
Sadly neither of these features have confirmed release dates.
So we could be waiting weeks or even months for them to land on the general version of WhatsApp.
If you want to try WhatsApp features before everyone else, follow our guide below to join the beta.
