It’s easier than you think, the WhatsApp statuses of other users anonymous to watch. All you have to do is make a small change in your account’s privacy settings.
How to Spy WhatsApp Status Secretly
Open the main menu by clicking on the three vertical dots menu that you see on the main screen of the application.
Open the main menu in WhatsApp
Click on Settings (settings) to open WhatsApp settings.
Open WhatsApp settings
In the list of functional areas, click on Account or Account to see all related settings.
See the account options
Go to the privacy section.
Then check if the Read Receipts option is enabled. If that’s the case, tap the slider to turn it off.
Disable read receipts
From now on, when you open a status message, you can watch it anonymously. This means that the user who posted it cannot know that you opened and played it from your phone.
The Consequences of Enabling the Read Receipts Option
- Message acknowledgment remains disabled. However, if you disable the option mentioned in this article, you will no longer be able to see if others have read your messages thanks to the double blue tick.
- Another change in WhatsApp behavior is that other users can no longer see whether you have read their messages.
- If you turn off read receipts, you will also no longer be able to see the full list of users who have opened your status updates. So if you post a video, photo or other content using this feature, you will not receive any information about the views.
With these changes in mind, you should consider whether or not it’s really worth turning off read receipts on WhatsApp.
