In their latest update WhatsApp introduced an option to turn off read receipts (two blue ticks) from WhatsApp settings. This update is currently not available in any of the App Stores like Google Playstore or Apple iTunes.
In my last post, I discussed two methods to do the same : Disable WhatsApp Read Receipts.
Although the option turns off read receipts in personal chats, they will still be enabled in WhatsApp groups. Which means others in the group can still check their message info to see if you have viewed the message.
The option has been introduced in their latest WhatsApp version which is 2.11.44.
Turn OFF WhatsApp Read Receipts.
These are the steps to turn off read receipts in WhatsApp.
Step 1. Download the latest WhatsApp application from their website : WhatsApp
Step 2. Transfer the downloaded application to your phone.
Step 3. Install the latest WhatsApp over the already installed one. (Your data will be intact)
Step 4. Open WhatsApp and click on the menu button (3 square dots on top right corner) > Choose the Settings option.
Step 5. Click on Accounts > Privacy option.
Step 6. Scroll down and untick the Read receipts checkbox.
Now your read receipts are disabled on WhatsApp.
