  • If you don’t share your last seen, you won’t be able to see other people’s last seen.
  • There is no way to hide when you are online or typing.
  • If you turn off read receipts, you won’t be able to see read receipts from other people. Read receipts are always sent for group chats.
  • If a contact has disabled read receipts, you will not be able to see that they have viewed your status update.
