Here’s how you can get rid of it by simply hiding the time you were last seen on WhatsApp!
I only believe that WhatsApp is one of the best creations of the modern world. It is Application which has changed our lives forever and for every good reason, but we need to swallow one thing that it hasn’t done anything yet to maintain our privacy.
WhatsApp last seenis the unique and very useful feature of messanger, but at the same time, it disturbs your privacy which you need to hide sometimes from your friends or family. Surely we as human beings don’t like being noticed every time.

This method can also be used smartly to prank your friends, them would be easy and fun. GBWhatsApp is commendable for the bunch of exciting features.
Hide WhatsApp Last Seen Time on Android
How does this app work ?
After you’ve configured the application, the app starts to work. When you open WhatsApp, Not Last Seen app automatically disables your WiFi connection and when you close the WhatsApp window, it automatically starts WiFi. Its accurate and doesn’t keep you waiting. So calling it an automatic WiFi on-off app is justified.
We don’t have a Google Play Store link since the app no longer exists there. It violated some Google policie
Launch the app. You’ll see three options – Block Last Seen at Boot Phone, Block Last Seen, Always Recover WiFi.
Tick ‘Block Last Seen’.
Since the app is no longer updated, simply ticking the first one didn’t work for me so I had to tick the second one i.e Block Last Seen at Boot Phone too.
If your WiFi connection doesn’t start automatically when you leave the WhatsApp window, tick ‘Always Recover WiFi’.
When the app runs you’ll see a message in your notifications area. You can tap it to change the settings if required or leave it as it is or tap clear to hide it from your notifications bar. I however recommend it to stay there so you’re aware your last seen is hidden.
Disable your phone’s WiFi or data network.
Open WhatsApp. Read messages if any. Send messages if you want to.
Close WhatsApp. Enable WiFi or data network.
The messages will be sent as soon as your phone connect’s to the internet without anybody coming to know the last time you accessed WhatsApp! The last seen they’ll see will be the time you last opened WhatsApp with your internet connection on.
Hide WhatsApp Last Seen Time on iPhone
(We assume that you’ve installed WhatsApp on your iPhone. If not you can download WhatsApp and then come back to this page.)
Hiding the last seen time on iOS is relatively easier than doing the same on Android phone. WhatsApp for iPhone comes with an option which lets you hide your last seen time easily. To do the same time in Android, you either have to install additional apps or play with your device settings. Anyways let’s bring our focus back on iPhone.
Upon launching WhatsApp, go to Settings.
Then Last Seen Timestamp.
Turn it off.
The only disadvantage is that it takes around 24 hours if not more for your new settings to go live. Fortunately this isn’t the case with Android. And if you ever decide to change your settings again, make sure you can wait for twenty-four more hours!
