​Tips To Read WhatsApp Messages Without the Sender Noticing

Everyone uses WhatsApp nowadays as it has an incredible user-friendly system for messaging. However, many are unhappy with the fact that it displays the two blue ticks when they read the message that’s been sent to them, and one can even tap on the information option of the message to see the specific minute and second the message was read.

There are ways, though, to read the received message without the sender knowing you’ve seen it

One of the methods to read the message in secret, without leaving a trail is to turn off read receipts. This option is, however, two-sided: if you disable it, others won’t see when you read the message, but it won’t let you know when they’ve read yours as well.

  5. Disable the ‘Read receipts’ option

If you’ve disabled the read receipts, you should also ensure to turn off Last Seen or it’s not going to really do much.
