How do I find out who has seen my WhatsApp status?

WhatsApp Status Messages are a great way to share photos, texts and videos with all your contacts. You probably use this feature every day to send short-lived content that disappears after 24 hours. Do you want to know which users see your status messages on WhatsApp? Stay tuned to this guide because we will show you.

First, open the status tab and post a new status. Then wait a bit for your contacts to see the content. Next, click on the three dots next to your post.

On the next page you see all still active slides, ie all status messages that you posted less than 24 hours ago. Next to the status thumbnail you will find a counter that shows you how many people have seen the content.
