How To Stay Offline on WhatsApp Despite Being Online?

WhatsApp is the world’s most used messaging application.

If you want the phone to appear offline on the WhatsApp even when Wi-Fi or data is on, this is now possible.

First, open the WhatsApp application and go to Settings and select the Account option.
From there go to Privacy and open the ‘Last Seen’ option and select ‘Online Status’ then three options will appear in front of you.

The first is EVeryone, the second is Contacts Only and the third is Nobody. From here, if you select No Body, your status will be offline for everyone.

The quick reply feature in WhatsApp not only allows you to reply from the notification panel without even opening the app but also hides your online status from other contacts. So, only you and your preferred contact can chat now without anyone knowing that you are online.

Now, there is a little tedious process that involves the flight mode to appear offline when you send the message.
