You might have probably heard the news of facebook acquiring whatsapp for a huge sum of 19 Billion Dollars. WhatsApp is a very popular and widely used social messaging application for android, windows and iOS.
Previously, users were not satisfied with the privacy in whatsapp usage. It use to show the last seen timestamp to everyone. Even strangers can see status and profile picture. This was a privacy concern for most of the users. Many apps came into market which promised to hide the last seen timestamp of whatsapp, but some worked and some didn’t.
Now Whatsapp has a good news for its users. They have a new update of whatsapp where they have added a privacy option in whatsapp settings. With this option you can hide your status, profile picture and last seen timestamp from strangers, or from everyone.
