WhatsApp has become the most used service in our daily lives. It does, however, have some features that may irritate some users. When you connect in the app, you appear online, and if you write a message, the platform notifies the recipient. As a result, you must be aware of the trick that allows you to conceal the ‘online’ and ‘writing’ statuses. How are you going to do it? Here’s an example.
WhatsApp’s ‘online’ status indicates that you are connected and have the app open in the foreground. As a result, your contacts may believe you are responding to messages or conversing with someone. Fortunately, there are several methods for concealing it.
Mode of flight
You will be able to use this function to review and respond to only a subset of your contacts’ chats while the rest of your contacts are unaware. Simply follow these steps to avoid appearing ‘online’ in WhatsApp:
Activate the aeroplane mode option in your phone’s settings, whether it’s an iPhone or an Android.
Enter WhatsApp and read and respond to the messages that interest you. This will ensure that the words “writing” and “online” do not appear.
When you’re finished, exit the app.
Return to your phone’s settings and deactivate the aeroplane mode.
When you reconnect to the internet, your message will be sent automatically, without the need for you to open WhatsApp.
From the notification window
Responding from notifications is a slightly easier option. That is, instead of opening the app when a message arrives, simply swipe down and a text box will appear from which you can follow the conversation without having to enter the app and show everyone that you are online.
With WhatsApp’s widget
You should be aware that the WhatsApp widget is only available on Android phones. To do so, follow these steps:
Navigate to the phone’s home screen.
Go to a place where nothing exists.
Keep your finger on the screen.
In the bottom menu, select the widgets option.
Search for the WhatsApp 4 2 widget.
Long press on this widget to activate it
Put it on your home screen.
After that, you can read and respond to messages.

How do you export your WhatsApp contact list to an Excel spreadsheet?

Simply keep your finger on the WhatsApp message you want to highlight until it is highlighted in blue. At that point, various options will be available at the top of the interface, one of which is the star icon.
How to Start a Conversation with Yourself?
The trick is to use WhatsApp groups. To do so, launch the application and select the three-dot icon to access the options menu. Select “New Group” to create one, then add a trusted contact and finally give the chat a name.
When the WhatsApp group is successfully created, it is only necessary to remove the contact you previously added. Now, there will be a chat in which you will be the only participant and in which you will be able to send messages to yourself.
Leave groups without informing anyone.
If you are tired of being a member of a WhatsApp group but are too embarrassed to leave, you should know that there is a secret trick that will allow you to say goodbye to that annoying group chat without anyone noticing.
