How to read messages on WhatsApp without appearing connected (and without them knowing that we read them)


 The last time we are online on WhatsApp is usually a delicate and interesting piece of information for the gossipiest. That is why if we want to be left alone, but not miss what the messages we receive say, it is useful to know some tricks to read WhatsApp messages and not appear online.


If we are one of those who do not want the rest of the friends we have on WhatsApp, especially those who demand that we answer as soon as we read the messages, leave us alone with the "I've seen you online" or "You didn't want to read my message and reply », etc. etc. We have Android or iPhone we can use a series of settings, in addition to the odd secret to get rid of the problem.


Tricks to read WhatsApp without appearing connected

1.- Make sure that nobody can see your last connection time and deactivate the read confirmation

By default WhatsApp is configured (Settings> Privacy) so that your contacts see your last connection time. If you set this setting to "Nobody", no one will have access to the last time you connected, and if you also delete the read receipt, they will not know if you have read their messages either. You will be a real ghost... the problem is that you will be for everyone.


2.- Use the previous trick but only with those that you do not have in the agenda

He who made the law made the trap. We can configure the last connection time only for "My Contacts", so to make sure that a specific contact does not see the last hour that you have connected, you only have to delete it from your agenda after starting the chat with him or her. . You will be able to continue sending messages without problems but since you are not in your contacts, you will not be able to see that data.


The only "but" of this plan is that to stop seeing the read receipts, you have to completely disable them, so the rest of the people you chat with will not be able to see if you have seen their messages either.


3.- Read and answer the messages from the notifications

In order not to be as radical as in the previous options, a trick that has been available for a couple of years is the ability to respond to WhatsApp messages from notifications. You just have to display the notification center, or respond to the messages on the lock screen, to reply to any contact without appearing online at any time or having that action registered within the last hour that we have been online.


4.- The one with the «airplane mode»

It is the most classic, but still effective. If before opening the application we put the "airplane mode" on the mobile, we can walk quietly through the chats, read the messages and keep our last connection hidden ... yes, we must take certain precautions if we do not want to be caught when we return activate the mobile connection: before removing the airplane mode we have to completely close WhatsApp, that is, remove it from multitasking. If we do not do it and it stays in the background, it will record the connection and the messages read the moment you have an Internet connection again.


5.- Use external apps that make the task easier

Finally, perhaps one of the most effective, is the trick of installing an application that allows us to read the messages without appearing online. Among the most recommended we have some such as " Private Reading for WhatsApp ". The name says it all and what it really does is that it takes advantage of the "failure" of notifications to display messages and reply to them without us appearing online.


Another recommended is Unseen , which is also compatible with other apps in addition to WhatsApp such as Instagram and, in fact, what it does is unify all the messaging trays in a single - another interesting function -. It allows you to hide the double blue check in WhatsApp and other apps, read messages invisibly and incognito and, in addition, customize this presence for some apps or others.


Finally, there is also Unseen : no seen marks , which is quite similar to the previous one since it unifies the inboxes of different messaging apps in addition to hiding both our last connection and whether we have read the messages.


6. WhatsApp widget

Another simple trick but perhaps unknown to some is to use the WhatsApp Widget. A small 4 × 2 window that we can locate on the home screen of our phone and where the messages we receive from any of our contacts will appear. In this way, simply by unlocking the phone and viewing the Widget, we can read the messages without appearing as read and without appearing Online.


To do this, we go to the home screen of our phone, hold down an area of ​​the screen without icons and wait for the options Wallpapers, Widgets, Transitions, Screen Settings, etc. to appear. These options may vary depending on the manufacturer of the phone or the version of Android that we have installed.


We select the Widgets option and we scroll through all the available ones until we find the one for WhatsApp 4 × 2. We select it and place it on the home or apps screen and from that moment on we can see the new messages received there without appearing as read and showing that we are online.
