Summary List Placement
WhatsApp is the mobile messaging app that allows you to send text messages and make phone calls and video calls to friends and family in different countries without paying international fees.
By default, the app has specific privacy settings in place that allow any user to see when you’ve last used the app (last seen), your profile photo, your “about” information, and read receipts. They also allow contacts to see your status updates, and any users can add you to groups.
If you’d like more privacy on the app, these settings can be changed at any time. Here’s how to do it.
How to change your WhatsApp privacy settings
1. Open the WhatsApp app.
2. Tap the gear “Settings” icon in the bottom menu.
3. Tap “Account.”
4. Choose “Privacy.”
5. Tap on the privacy setting you want to change, including Last Seen, Profile Photo, About, Groups, and My Status.
6. Select a group from the list of options for that setting:
- My Contacts
