If you do not wish to appear online on WhatsApp yet want to read the received messages, here is the trick that will disable blue ticks and make you appear offline in this popular chatting app. The process works fine if you want to use WhatsApp just to reply to messages and not see photos and videos.

WhatsApp introduced the read receipts or the Blue ticks option in its app to display checkmarks next to each message you send. The feature allows people to see precisely when the message is read. Although it helps you to know whether the message you sent to someone has been read by him or her, it becomes a hindrance when you receive a message from someone but do not want to reply immediately or want to reply back without showing you online.

Apart from the ‘read receipts’ option, the ‘last seen’ notification on WhatsApp is also one of the features that give you no privacy. Now here is a way you can hide from your contacts even while you are online on WhatsApp.

Trick to appear offline
To reply without appearing online you should reply directly from the screen.

 

For iPhone users, slide the new message to the left, tap on the view option and reply

For Android users, tap the message on the home screen. The ‘Mark as read’ & ‘reply’ options will appear, tap on reply to send the message.

The quick reply feature in WhatsApp not only allows you to reply from the notification panel without even opening the app but also hides your online status from other contacts. So only you and your preferred contact can chat now without anyone knowing that you are online.

For the flight mode to appear offline when you send the message, switch the phone to airplane mode. Then open WhatsApp and go to the contact where you want to send the message and open it. Type the message, hit the send button while WhatsApp is running in the background.

Turn off the Airplane mode. The message will be sent to the receiver without you appearing online.
