Your Last Seen status will no longer be leaked by a new WhatsApp feature

Android and iOS devices are presently receiving updates.

WhatsApp is introducing new security features that give you more precise control over which account details other users can and cannot see.

The Profile Photo, About description, and Last Seen status are the settings on your WhatsApp account(opens in new tab) that are affected.

Since November 2021, control over Last Seen in particular has been a planned feature. The other two options will soon have access to the same level of control.
