Learn how to disable your WhatsApp blue ticks and read receipts feature which is enabled by default. Depend on how you are looking into the features, they can be useful or / and not.

If I am the sender, after sending a message I will see one grey tick which means the message is already sent. When I see double grey ticks, I know the other party already received the message. And when I see double blue ticks, I know the message has been seen (and ignored).

As you can see, the main purpose of the blue ticks and read receipts is to alert the sender that you have seen their message.  But, if you feel like you don’t want the sender to know that you have seen the message without replying, there is a work-around to disable these features.

How to disable WhatsApp blue ticks and read receipts

On Android and IOS

Open your WhatsApp, tap on the three-dot menu in the upper right, go to “Setting” > “Account” > “Privacy”. Here you will find a lot of privacy options. At the “Read receipts” options, you can disable it by unchecking the box. Take note that this setting is not applicable for group conversation.

After making the change, you will notice the tick is no longer visible on any of your messages which means, both parties can’t see the message status.
