Whatsapp for iOS may soon let you hide your online status

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a feature that would let users disguise their online status.

The issue with WhatsApp's Last Seen status is that it informs contacts if you have read their messages even if read receipts have been disabled.

Given how long it took WhatsApp to begin developing such a fundamental security feature, it's encouraging that it is now available. Many users will undoubtedly value it.
