WhatsApp Adds Privacy Update to Hide Profile Picture, last seen, about and status from Some Contacts

Meta-owned WhatsApp has launched some new privacy updates for its users. “To further protect your privacy online, we are introducing new options for your privacy management settings,” tweeted WhatsApp.

The new feature allows you to hide your personal information such as profile picture, last seen status and about from specific contacts. “Now you can select who from your contact list can see your profile picture, about, last seen and status,” WhatsApp added.

These updates have been in the news for a while now. Earlier this year, WhatsApp rolled out the same update to beta users.

“Your last seen, profile picture, about or status is available to your contacts from your address book, except those you exclude,” reads WhatsApp’s FAQ section.
