Almost all of us have WhatsApp on our smartphones. But do we really use its full potential? You don’t want anybody to see your chats? You want to become invisible to your contact list? You can learn these and many more interesting hacks by just having a look at your Settings tab.
If you don’t want everybody to see you online or check your status, pics, or account info, use the following trick:
- For Android: Go to Menu > Settings > Account > Privacy. Change the settings of personal data visibility.
- For iOS: Go to Settings, and open the Privacy tab. Then change your settings there.
Add a chat link to your home screen (contact shortcuts)
If you are texting somebody pretty much all day or have a favorite chat that you need quick access to, you can easily add a link to it in your home screen (it works only for Android devices).
All you need to do is tap and hold on a chat and then click on three vertical dots on the top right of your screen and choose “Add Shortcut”. That way you won’t have to go through all your chats to find the one you need. It will be already on your home screen!
As you probably already know whatsapp automatically saves every picture and video that are sent to you, so if you are sick and tired of constantly deleting unnecessary photos that your contacts message you, you can turn the auto saving off.
Go to Setting then select “Chats” and turn off “Save to Camera Roll”.
