Be invisible on WhatsApp Web by disabling read receipts and presence updates
See other people's read receipts and "last seen", but never send yours. This way you can freely explore anyone's chat thread without making it read. And additionally, nobody knows you're online.
+ Adds a new menu in WhatsApp Web that lets you toggle on and off the sending of:
- Read receipts for messages (two blue ticks mark)
- "Last Seen" updates (presence)
+ Lets you set a safety timeout that allows you to automatically send the read
receipts after a certain time from opening the message. During this time you are given a cancel button, which prevents the receipt from being sent.
+ When read receipts are blocked, the unread messages counteres show up transperent, and when you read them they turn red. This helps to tell when you are in invisible mode and it is safe to click on chats.
+ If you want to mark a spesific chat as read anyway, you can open the sub-menu of it and choose "mark as read". A warning will show up and when you confirm, a read receipt will be sent.
