WhatsApp users are quite familiar with the Read Receipt feature that is depicted by a blue tick. The feature helps you know if the recipient has read your message yet. A lot of people don’t want other users to know whether they have read their messages.
However, if you disable the Read Receipt feature on WhatsApp, then your contacts would not know whether you have read their messages or not. They will get the double grey ticks, which means the message has been delivered. In the article, you’ll learn how to disable blue ticks on WhatsApp.
How To Disable Blue Ticks On WhatsApp
You can enable and disable this feature whenever you feel like it. The steps below are the same on both Android and iOS devices. Beforehand, ensure your WhatsApp is updated to the latest version.
Then, launch WhatsApp on your iPhone or Android device. Next, on Android devices, tap on the three vertical dots on the upper right then tap on ‘Settings’. For iOS devices, simply tap on ‘Settings‘ at the bottom right corner of the page.
Next, tap on ‘Privacy’ and scroll down to ‘Read Receipts’. The feature is enabled by default on the app. To disable it, simply tap on the toggle icon next to it. As we mentioned earlier, if this feature is disabled, you won’t be able to see other people’s read receipts.
