WhatsApp’s privacy settings allow us to decide who can see our last login timeour profile picture or our informationbut until now, the options it gave us were to show this information to everyone, only to our contacts or to no one.
With the latest WhatsApp beta, that finally changed after a four-month wait. now finally we can hide from certain contacts
Here are the new WhatsApp privacy options
From version WhatsApp 22.214.171.124 (currently only available through the Google Play beta program, we’ll find a new option when configuring our privacy. It’s about ‘My contacts, except…’
In this way WhatsApp gives us more control over the personal information our contacts can seewhich now lets you manually hide yourself from those contacts you don’t want them to know when you were last online or see your profile picture.
With WhatsApp updated to version 126.96.36.199 (APK), just go to Menu > Settings > Account > Privacy
Now that this feature is available for all WhatsApp Beta users, it’s already a few weeks before the “My contacts, except…” option will finally reach everyone via the stable version of WhatsApp, which it receives the news a month later.
