It is not easy to get the most out of WhatsApp , and it is that the messaging application can give much more than the average user thinks. However, if you want to learn how to use the application like an expert, you just have to follow some fairly simple tricks. These will allow you, for example, to prevent your contacts from knowing if you have read their messages, stop appearing online or receive messages from that friend who does not leave you alone, and without having to block him. Here are some tips that may be helpful to you.
To prevent them from knowing if I have read the message
You may not want your contacts to know when you use the “app” or have read the messages that have been sent to you. To solve it, open WhatsApp and access the “Settings” menu. Then select the “Account” section and click on “Privacy”. You will see how an option is displayed in which you can read «Read receipts» and, if you deactivate it, the double blue «check» will no longer appear, showing that the message has been seen.
To not go online
There is a method that, without downloading any other application, “hides” that at that moment we have just connected. It is somewhat rudimentary, but it has the advantage of its simplicity. We have to go to ” airplane mode ” (or disable our internet connection) and then open WhatsApp. So we can read the messages without being detected, and even write the reply, which will not be sent until we activate the connection to the network again. Thanks to this, no one will know that we have entered the application.
To not have to read

To not receive messages without blocking it
In WhatsApp it is possible to block messages from a certain contact, but this option causes the receiver to stop receiving certain information such as the last connection time. And of course we avoid being texted.
However, there are times when, for whatever reasons, it is preferable to keep this “heavy” contact close but, apparently, we are ignoring it. The trick is to archive the conversation. To do this, you have to slide the contact window to the left from the chat window. Then the “archive” option will appear. To see the conversation you have to go to “Archived Chats” which is located just below the search function.
To send higher quality photos
This trick only works for devices with the iOS operating system , that is, iPhone. To do this, you have to go through Apple’s “cloud” storage service, iCloud, which saves files with the same quality. Then, you must go to the photo gallery where they are stored, the traditional Reel, and select the image you want to share.
Once chosen it is necessary to open the menu that is displayed and tell it to save in iCloud. After completing this step, you have to open WhatsApp but , instead of clicking to share a photo, go to ” Share document “. This option will allow you to go to iCloud to consult all the files that we have stored in the “cloud”. Then, the photo is selected and it is given to «Send», thus getting the file to be sent as an uncompressed document.
Hide by typing on WhatsApp
There is no way that it does not appear writing on WhatsApp, on its official page, this social network clarifies it, saying the following: There is no option to disable status online or typing
There is also, to this day, no software or application capable of displaying a false message when a person writes or stops writing.
And although applications have previously come out that could somehow hide the message by typing, today they are obsolete. Every time WhatsApp security has new ways to destroy any malicious application that seeks to deceive users.
If you ever find that a person wants to sell you or asks you to install an application to be able to remove and hide the “writing” message, you should give up on the idea, since you could be in danger. Many of these fake applications, the only thing they seek is to infect your mobile terminal or steal your data.
