WhatsApp

WhatsApp is rolling out new security features that let you have more granular control over who can and can’t see certain account details.

The settings affected on your WhatsApp account(opens in new tab) are the Profile Photo, About description, and Last Seen status. You can now decide whom amongst your contacts can see those three details. Control over Last Seen, in particular, is a functionality that has been in the works since November 2021. That level of control is being expanded to the other two settings.

Hidden details

Prior to this security update, you could either let the public see those particular account details, restrict access to just contacts, or prevent everyone from knowing. And you don’t have to worry about the rest of your contacts as everyone not restricted will be to see that information just fine.

With the new update, be aware that when you restrict your Last Seen status to a certain person, you won’t be able to see their status either. This update is arriving on both Android and iOS. You can check if you have the update by going to Settings on WhatsApp, then selecting Account, and then Privacy.
