WhatsApp likely to allow users to hide online status soon

- Advertisement -

San Francisco, Sep 7, 2021 – Facebook-owned WhatsApp will reportedly let users hide their online status from anyone who can’t be trusted.

As spotted by WABetaInfo, new privacy tools are in development to allow control over exactly who can see parts of a user’s profile, reports Android Police.

Currently, “Last Seen,” “Profile Picture” and “About” can either be seen by everyone, contacts, or no one at all. There are no customisable options, the report said.

Those limitations will be lifted soon, as WhatsApp is currently testing the ability to exclude specific contacts from seeing your status, it added.

With this option, users will be able to hide their “Last Seen” time from a handful of people without disabling it altogether.

This option will also support profile photos and bios, providing much more control over privacy than previously offered.

Disabling “Last Seen” will remain a two-way street — if a user hides it from a group of people in their contacts list, WhatsApp will hide their information in return.

Although the feature was spotted on iOS, it’s slated to come to all smartphones whenever it’s ready for primetime.

Earlier, the popular messaging application had stated that it is working on view once messages that would disappear forever after just being viewed once.  (Agency)

This AI tech may spot unseen signs of heart failure

New York, Oct 19, 2021- US researchers have developed an electrocardiogram-reading algorithm that can detect subtle signs of heart failure. Heart failure, or congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart pumps less blood than the body normally needs. For years, doctors have relied heavily on an imaging technique called an echocardiogram to assess whether a patient may be experiencing heart...
