Hide Last seen in Android

If you are an Android OS user then there are two methods by which you can hide your last seen status.

Method 1 - Using Not Last Seen app

This is an app of android which disables the network packet data when you wish to hide your last seen status. But the drawback of app is that you can not hide your status while you wish to chat with someone for long time. Because this app basically disconnects your handset from packet data when you enter whatsapp, so servers of whatsapp dont get your status that you are using it and then after reading the messages when you close the whatsapp , it again enables the internet active automatically so in this way you get to read the messages from your contacts without being noticed by whatsapp servers and hence your last seen status is not updated.

Method 2 - Manually

1. Go to settings and Disable your cellphone’s Interent and Wifi.
2. Open Whatsapp. Read and send messages.
3. Close Whatsapp, now enable Internet and Wifi.

As soon as the Internet connectivity re-initialized , Whatsapp will synchronize with the servers and the messages will be sent without the server getting to know your last online status update.
