If you are one of those who like use messaging and social networking services with more privacy, hiding the last hour of connecting or deactivating the famous double check, for example, you should know that WhatsApp will make it a bit more difficult from now on at least in relation to their states.
The WhatsApp corrected a little trick that allowed one to see the status of someone without the other person discovering and which consisted simply of Turn off read receipts. But that does not mean we can no longer see states without anyone knowing: there are still two tricks that are still working and which we explain below.
Wait 24 hours to re-enable confirmation
So far, if you wanted to check the status of a person (or several) without knowing what you had seen, there was a very simple trick that consisted, as we said, in Turn off read receiptsor what is the same, the double blue check.
To do this, you just need to follow three simple steps:
Within WhatsApp, enter Settings, right from the whole.
Among the different options that appear in the configuration, choose the first one: Privacy.
Underneath everything, uncheck the & # 39;Read settings& # 39;
When you turn off this option, it was not shown to other people that you had seen your states in WhatsApp, just as you would not know who had seen yours as well. Then you can turn it on again without the WhatApp "guess" what you did. Now, however, by enabling read receipt again, WhatsApp sends outgoing notifications, but rather shows how it reads the states you saw while it was off.
But, of course, made the law, made the trap, and the solution is as simple as the completion of a fourth step:
- Now it's imperative Wait 24 hours before re-enabling confirmation because the states disappear after that time. If the state ceases to exist, the notification of your reading will not be sent and no one will ever know that you have seen it.
Use a file browser
To see WhatsApp states without knowing who created them, there is another alternative that is to use a file browser. Of course, keep in mind that this method only works on Android terminals and only allows you to see states that are photos or videos, not those that are just text.
In our case, we will use ES File Explorer, which is one of the most popular, but there are many more. Even some phone manufacturers, like Samsung, have their own pre-installed file browser.
When the ES File Explorer application is open (downloaded and installed earlier, of course), go to the internal phone memory, which is where WhatsApp stores your images, including the states, even if you have a memory card.
Search and open the WhatsApp Pasta.
As the folder that interests us is hidden, you need to display the ES File Explorer options panel (sliding from left to right) and enable the & # 39;Show hidden files& # 39;
After activating the hidden files, a folder called .Statuses this was not before
Inside, he saved photos and videos shared by his friends in the WhatsApp states. You just have to touch any image to see and that WhatsApp status will continue to be marked as unseen on your own WhatsApp; nor will your name appear to the person who created it on the list of people who saw it.
So if you "gossip" the states here, nobody will find out that you saw them, but keep in mind that photos and videos shared in states by your friends will be displayed without any order or ID, so you must deduce who is each to the context.
