WhatsApp does not require any introduction. Over the years, WhatsApp has introduced a lot of great features, one of which is status posting. WhatsApp Status allows you to post a status for your contacts to see for 24 hours. Whenever you view someone’s WhatsApp status, it will show who has seen it. In this tutorial, I show you how you can view WhatsApp status secretly without anyone knowing.
1. Official Method
Let’s start to see how you can view WhatsApp status secretly with the official method. This is also one of the easiest methods.
First, open WhatsApp, then tap the icon three dots on the top right corner of the screen and tap on the menu option Settings from the drop-down menu. In Settings ketut Account and then tap Privacy.
On the Privacy page, tap on options Read receipts for deactivate it. This will allow you to view WhatsApp status of your contacts secretly and your name will never appear in your contact view list.
There is one drawback of this method. Once you disable this setting, you will also not see who has viewed your status. This setting will also hide read receipts (blue ticks) in normal messages.
2. Using File Manager
This method requires you to install the File Manager application on your smartphone, especially the File Manager which has an option to view hidden files. There are many File Manager apps in the Play Store that you can install or you can check out the 7 best Android file manager apps.
Here I am using the native File Manager app on a Samsung device. Open the app File Manager and search for the folder WhatsApp in your internal storage, then open the folder named Media.
In the Media folder, tap the icon three dots and open Settings. In the Settings menu, you need activate option Show hidden system files. Once you have done that, you will see a new folder named .Statuses visible in the Media folder. After opening the folder .Statuses, you will find all pre-loaded or viewed WhatsApp statuses.
3. Airplane Mode or Airplane Mode
This is another simple method and does not involve many steps. All you need to do is open the WhatsApp app and head to the Status tab. Once you are there, you need to bring down the notification bar and tap on the icon Airplane Mode to activate it. This will disconnect you from the Internet.
Then tap status that you want to see. Once done, close WhatsApp and delete all tabs. In this way, you will be able to view WhatsApp status secretly without anyone knowing.
4. View Before Expiration
This method requires your brain cells. As you probably already know, WhatsApp status stays active for 24 hours. If you want to secretly view WhatsApp status, you can see the time when the target status was uploaded and before it expires, have a look. Many people don’t bother checking how many people have seen their status late at night. It’s not a completely enduring method, but it’s worth a try.
Note that this is the currently working method for secretly viewing WhatsApp status. Personally, it’s fine if your name appears in the viewer’s contact list, but it can be useful if you want to remain anonymous.
