New update from WhatsApp.. Hide your information from specific people

WhatsApp has added a special "Hidden mode" that lets you hide your information from contacts, a new way to keep some of your information private from very specific people.

Other apps, including Instagram at Meta, offer similar features. With the new update, you will be able to hide your profile picture and last seen status.

And you'll be able to choose these settings for everyone, my contacts, my contacts except and nobody. So you may want to keep your partner or family's last seen - but turn it off for any annoying friends or colleagues. The new method aims to maintain the privacy of WhatsApp in a more accurate way.

WhatsApp explained: “To further protect your privacy online, we are introducing new options for your privacy control settings.” "You can now decide who from your contacts list can see your profile picture, about, and last seen status."

But when you prevent someone from seeing your personal information, you will also be prevented from seeing their information.

The new feature is being rolled out in the public version of the app at the moment.

Check the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for the latest updates.
