This has been a bone of contention with a majority of my friends and they find it confusing but this post on the Lukastech blog will show us how to disable the “Message Seen” blue ticks on WhatsApp.

This tick will let you/other people know that you’ve read their message on WhatsApp … Know that it is impossible to disable this feature for group chats.

Let’s see how this can be done on iPhone and Android respectively.

Using An iPhone

 


1.
Open WhatsApp. It’s the green app with a white phone and chat bubble icon.

If this is your first time opening WhatsApp, you’ll need to set up WhatsApp.

2. Tap Settings. It’s in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
If WhatsApp opens a conversation, first tap the back button in the top-left corner of the screen.

3. Tap Account. It’s near the top of the page.

4. Tap Privacy. This option is at the top of the “Account” page.

5. Slide Read Receipts to the “Off” (left) position. This green switch is at the bottom of the screen; sliding it left will disable read receipts in non-group conversations, which will, in turn, prevent the blue “Message Seen” ticks from appearing in your chats.

If the switch is white, read receipts are already disabled.
