Therefore, it is common for us to receive thousands of messages or calls that can be overwhelming when we want a moment of peace and quiet. Happily. There is a secret trick that has gone viral on social networks and that allows you to deactivate the application without having to remove the internet from your phone or install strange apps. How does it work? Here we tell you.

It is true that many people choose to disconnect from Wi-Fi or disable mobile data and thus prevent WhatsApp messages from reaching them, however, this means that we cannot surf the Internet from the phone, check email, open social networks, or use an app that requires a connection.

Another alternative widely used by WhatsApp users is to silence the individual and group chats that we use the most. However, this task can be tedious and useless as it will not prevent notifications from reappearing when someone we mute writes to us again. Fortunately, there is another little-known way to disconnect from the application without having to resort to the aforementioned measures.

Thanks to this simple method, we will be able to continue using Wi-Fi or mobile data without any problem, but we will not receive any WhatsApp messages. In addition, it will appear to those who wrote to us that we have not received it.

  • Find the WhatsApp application and select it
  • Now a new window will open with details of the application: you must press the button that says ‘Stop’ or ‘Force stop’
  • A warning will appear stating that WhatsApp will stop working if you activate the force stop alternative, so you have to confirm the action.
