  4. 4
    You might ask me why would I make myself invisible, and what's the purpose of that
    ?
    Well, there are two things you achieve by making yourself invisible. First, let me show you an example. Go to chats by clicking the speech bubble icon at the bottom next to the settings icon.

  5. 5
    If you open a chat, a message below the person's name will tell you what time that person was last online
    .
    Also, when a person comes online, you are able to see it. You know that the person is holding their phone at that very moment, probably going through chats, writing responses, or whatever else.

  6. 6
    If you don't want people to see when you logged in to WhatsApp last time, or if you don't want others to see that you are online, you make yourself invisible
    .
    To do this, we need to go to Account.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Next we go to Privacy
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    At the top is Last Seen, so open that
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    You can make yourself invisible for everyone or just for strangers
    .
    Let's say some stranger got your phone number, and since you are saved on his phone, he can see you every time you log in and when you are online. In that case, you make yourself visible just for your contacts. Tap on My Contacts, and a check will appear over on the far right across from Contacts. Now, these are the only people who can see you online or just those other people who know that you are holding your phone.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    If you don't even want your contacts to see you being online, you can tap on Nobody
    .
    The check mark will move to that line. Now, no one can see that you're online.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    Tap on Privacy at the top left to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    There is another way to make yourself invisible
    .
    Go to Status. Status means that you're online or offline.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Right now, everybody can see if I'm online or not
    .
    Like before, I can allow just my contacts to see me online by tapping on that option.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Again, if I tap on Nobody, and then nobody can see me online
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Let's press Privacy again to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    From now, since I set it up for nobody being able to see me typing or being online, I became a WhatsApp invisible man
    .

Why does my video appear without image on WhatsApp?

Hello, every time I try to send a video from my PC to WhatsApp on my iPhone iOS, unfortunately, the video appears black without any image or thumbnail! How can I have my video with a visible image before it plays, in other words, how can I have my video with a thumbnail so that it appears appealing to others before they open the video and play it?! Thanks for your help

Install WhatsApp Plus for the iPhone. I had the same issue on Android and my iOS tablet. WhatsApp Plus corrected the situation and now videos appear normally.

Actually I was looking for an Android guide?

On how can I make my WhatsApp go invisible in Android

Android and iOS have the same function in Settings > Account > Privacy > Blocked > Add New for making yourself invisible.

HI! How can I turn invisible on iOS and not sending blue ticks to the sender?

How can I turn invisible on ios- iPhone 6 and not sending blue ticks to the sender

Under Settings>Accounts>Privacy there is an option to hide Read Receipts. Once you select that then the sender will not know that you viewed their message. The only issue with this option is that you also will not be able to see if someone read your message that you sent. It widely blocks to the server all receipts.

Hi, it seems that it is impossible to be invisible on WhatsApp. i.e. not show that you are online?

Please see above. I don't want to appear as online on WhatsApp. You give instructions on how to be invisible but it doesn't work. Settings privacy, last seen and status even if turned to nobody still show you as online as soon as you open WhatsApp

I have gone all steps as advised and I have turned everything to "nobody" however some people are able to see me online. What should be the problem?

I want to invisible and I have gone through the steps you have mentioned and I have ticked "nobody" for everything but it would appear that I am still online. Why is this so and how can I eliminate this online status. The situation is that my iPhone is still visible despite taking all the steps to invisible
