WhatsApp, the most popular instant messaging application in the world, or at least the one with the most users, without any chat. After its acquisition by Facebook, its future was tinged with gray, however, the constant improvements and features made WhatsApp the world’s leading communication tool.
However, sometimes we want to be able to access your content without being monitored by others, so We will teach you how to read and respond to WhatsApps without anyone knowing you are online, a series of tricks and features that will make your life easier on your iPhone and help you get rid of heavy stuff.
Recently in WhatsApp, “reactions” have been integrated, a feature inherited from Facebook and its messaging application that has integrated rather well, but this does not solve a small problem, that of being able to read and reply to WhatsApps without appearing “in line”. , or at least without people knowing that we have been logged into the application. We are going to tell you about all these little Things.
Enable Display in Notification Center
The notification center gives us a brief summary of the WhatsApp messages we have received, however, it will natively appear as a “message” and will not show us the content, at least not when the device is locked. To be able to access these messages more quickly and see them from the Notification Center, all you have to do is enter WhatsApp and follow these instructions: Settings > Notifications > Overview > On.
In this way, the messages received will be fully displayed in the notification center, but we will still have a parameter to customize, which is the following: Settings > Notifications > WhatsApp > Show previews > Always.
This is how the previews will be displayed whether our iPhone is locked or not, which will make our task much easier.
We can also use Siri to comment on all the WhatsApp messages we have received and thus read them one by one, knowing who sent them to us. To do this, we must follow the following configuration path: Settings > Siri & Search > WhatsApp Consult Siri > Enable.
Once we’ve made sure this setup is done right, we’ll just give it the precise instruction: Hey Siri, read me my WhatsApp messages.
In this way, it will read us the WhatsApp messages that we have pending, first it will inform us of the sender of said message, then it will read us the content one by one. This is undoubtedly one of the best ways to read WhatsApp messages without anyone knowing.
Reply from notifications
The interaction with notifications is something that has been integrated into the different versions of iOS and iPadOS for some time, so in principle we should already know that, but we remind you how easy it is.
This way you will respond to a specific message without having to enter the application, therefore, you will not appear “online” or connected and the last time you were connected will not appear even if you were able to read and reply to said message, one of the fastest and most interesting ways to interact with messages without anyone knowing.
Disable your last login
Remember that you can still perform the classic task of disabling last seen and even blue verification of having read a message. This is the most common measure to remain completely “anonymous” when entering and exiting WhatsApp, thus avoiding the prying eyes of those who know when you last entered the application or replied to a message. Personally, I haven’t adjusted this setting, but I can understand why it matters to some users.
To enable/disable read receipts, i.e. the blue tick, just enter WhatsApp > Settings > Account > Privacy > Read receipts. At this point, it is important to know that if you disable read receipts, you will also not be able to see those of others. Group chats, yes, will still receive read receipts, whether or not we have enabled this feature.
In the case of the last connection, we must follow the route WhatsApp > Settings > Account > Last. time and once inside, personalize the experience:
- All: Any user whose number is listed in the phonebook will be able to see your last connection to WhatsApp.
- My contacts: Only contacts you’ve added to your address book will be able to see your last WhatsApp login.
- My contacts, except: Exactly the same as the previous function, but we will be able to add specific exceptions, that is, certain users that we do not want to see our last connection on WhatsApp.
- Nobody: In this case, no user will be able to see our last connection to WhatsApp.
And these are all the tricks that we have brought you so that you can reply to WhatsApp messages and read them without anyone knowing that you have logged in or that you have been in the application, which offers a “plus” of privacy and tranquility in your daily life and which can make your life easier. We remind you that our Discord channel is available for all users where you can find these tips and many more.
