The WhatsApp messenger, owned by Meta*, released an update that allows you to hide the “online” status, according to the WABetaInfo portal.
So far, the function is available only to users of gadgets on the platform Android. They will be able to launch the app in stealth mode by choosing among the interlocutors those who can see the “online” status.
There is no information yet about the launch of this option for owners of iOS devices, as well as in the application for computers.
In addition, a court in Moscow fined WhatsApp 18 million rubles for repeatedly refusing to localize the personal data of Russians.
* The Meta company has been recognized as an extremist organization whose activities are prohibited in the Russian Federation.
