A new feature of WhatsApp allows you to reply to received messages by hiding your status. Here’s how to do it

The arrival of the double blue checkers on WhatsApp broke several friendships and made thousands of people fight.

The warning to read sent messages is a very useful feature, but that allows to understand when a person is online and what he is doing at that time.

The instant messaging application is running for cover by giving users the option to disable the feature and not to show their status (online, last login).

This way the blue double check is not shown, but at the same time, it will not be possible to know if other people have read our messages.

Above all, information about the last access is one of the most user-controlled to know if a person is online. Just enter a moment to reply to a message, which immediately WhatsApp updates the time of the last access.

With a simple trick, however, you can reply to messages received without showing you are online. Here’s how to do it.

How to reply to WhatsApp messages from the lock screen

WhatsApp staff is always working to implement new features. One of the last allows you to respond to messages received directly from the application lock screen.

To do this, however, you need to have one of the latest versions of your mobile operating system (both Android and iOS).

To reply to WhatsApp messages without appearing online, you will have to do it directly from the notification. With the new feature, in addition to the message notification, there is also a key with the word “Reply”.

Pressing it will open a space that allows you to write a reply message. Using this feature, your status on WhatsApp will not be updated and our friend “spy” will not know our last access time.

To make the best use of the functionality, it will be necessary that the lock screen is not active.
