The developers of the WhatsApp messenger have created a new feature that will allow you to hide your information from certain contacts.
This feature was first announced in September and will be available on both Android and iOS. The function will allow platform users to hide their status from a specific contact. If you do not want the person to know this information, you can add him to the new list with restrictions. If you turn off your status information for a specific user, then the restriction will apply to other information, such as profile pictures and general information.
At the moment, this feature has already become available to beta testers of WhatsApp v184.108.40.206 for Android. After installing this version, go to your privacy settings and select the new option “My Contacts Except …”. Here you can add the contacts you want to block from seeing your information.
This option is expected to be available to all WhatsApp users shortly.
