The privacy settings for WhatsApp status have been altered, so you can now view someone’s status secretly without them knowing!
There are a lot of hidden tricks in WhatsApp that are enticing users to use it. Its status privacy trick allows the user to view another person’s status without letting him know about it, which is loved by every user. How are you able to do that? You’re fine! We have compiled the best ways to remain anonymous when watching others’ statuses here.
View someone’s status anonymously!
There are three ways to make it possible. Let’s go through them one by one!
Module #1: Xposed
- Install the Xposed Module WhatsApp Extensions
- Reboot your device after activating the module
- Now open the module and turn off ‘Read Receipts’
By doing so, you will be able to see the status of any of your friends without them knowing. You can easily find out who has viewed your status, which is interesting.
#2: Read your receipts
- Go to the privacy settings of the ‘WhatsApp’ app. Turn off the option ‘Read Receipts’.
- The contacts whose WhatsApp status story you view will never know that you viewed it
- You will not be able to see who has viewed your status with this feature.
You will need to keep this feature turned off until their status is active. When you turn Read Receipts back on before while their status is active, you will be shown as a viewer on their story. If their status has disappeared, do not turn it back on.
Turn on the ‘See Hidden Files’ option #3
In this case, your agenda would remain to access the hidden files. You can use any file manager to do this, especially ES File Explorer, which offers this feature free of charge. You would then follow these steps:
- Turn on the ‘See Hidden Files’ option
- Go to the internal storage of your device and open the ‘WhatsApp’ folder under the ‘WhatsApp Media’ folder
- Tap on the ‘.Status’ folder
- Access other people’s ‘WhatsApp’ status by using an app like ‘ES Image Browser’
- In this way, your contact will never know that you have viewed their status.
This trick has the drawback that sometimes it does not show up even if it is updated in WhatsApp. Additionally, the status of people does not get updated in real-time, so you have to look for other alternatives, such as a free VPN. Therefore, we choose option 3.
I’m taking it!
