Hide blue tick
Blue tick is a useful feature. It sends an alert when the message is sent and read by a user. But if you do not answer immediately, blue tick can also become a problem. That is, if you want to tick off the blue to avoid trouble, then offer your read response. For this, you have to turn off the box of Read Receipts by going to Settings> Account> Privacy. Keep in mind that the read response will not be disabled for group chat.
Hide profile picture
There are times when you do not want everyone to see your profile picture. The good thing is that you can hide your WhatsApp DP from people you don’t know personally. For this, you have to go to Settings in WhatsApp. After this, you have to click on Account> Privacy. Now clicking on Profile photo, Everyone, My Contacts, Nobody option will be visible. By choosing the My Contacts option, you can show your profile photo to the people you know. If you do not want your DP to see any, then select the No One option.
