Learn How to Hide WhatsApp ‘Last seen at’ Time and Profile Picture from Other Users



WhatsApp for Android added most awaited privacy option for all who do not want to display information about when they last used the app.

This is the first impressive update of the WhatsApp after acquisition by Facebookwho has paid a lot of money in cash and stock to acquire it.
The Popular Smartphone messaging application WhatsApp version 2.11.169 will provide you more ability and control over privacy options i.e. Hiding ‘last seen at’ time, Profile picture, status updates from others, which are currently visible for all WhatsApp users.
Currently, these options are set to ‘everyone’ by default, that allows any WhatsApp user to find out exactly when you used WhatsApp for the last time, also reveals your image and Status message. Most of the times we don’t want it to be shown to anyone or to non-contact users.
WhatsApp now allows you to Modify your Privacy settings in three ways:
  1. Show to ‘Everyone’
  2. Show to ‘My Contacts’
  3. Show to ‘Nobody’
To Apply, Open your WhatsApp Settings -> Account -> Privacy and here you can set your Privacy settings as you wish.
So, if you set all the options to ‘My Contacts‘, then only your phone contacts can see your ‘last seen  at’ time, profile picture and Status, and no one else would have these visibility available.


The WhatsApp’s Founder said in a statement:
There would have been no partnership between our two companies (Facebook and Whatsapp) if we had to compromise on the core principles that will always define our company, our vision and our product.

I wish, the company keeps doing great work for the users’ privacy and Security.

WhatsApp is illegal, will soon banned in India : Government

WhatsApp could have accidentally entered into troubled waters here in India by enabling its end-to-end encryption for all. The new security feature by WhatsApp is not what is required by the Indian telecom rules and WhatsApp could face a ban, if the rules are not adhered to. But not yet.
In India, companies need to follow the country’s rules and adhere to specific types of encryption, which WhatsApp does not currently use. WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption on its chat service means that WhatsApp or anyone else won’t be able to crack open its contents.  Only the sender and the recipient are able to read the encrypted data. WhatsApp uses a 256-bit key for encryption of all chat messages, which is only known to the sender and the recipient.
Why is it not possible for WhatsApp to help decrypt users’ messages? "No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us," WhatsApp founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton wrote on their blog. How…

3 Mega Acquisitions in last week affects the Internet Space of India

Qihoo 360 buys Opera in $1.2 Billion Opera Software intends to accept a $1.2 billion acquisition offer from a group of Chinese companies. The Chinese consortium includes Internet security company Qihoo 360, Internet firm Beijing Kunlun (which invested roughly$93 millioninto Grindr earlier in the year) and investment group Golden Brick and Yonglian. According to Opera, the $1.2 billion is a 56 percent premium over Opera's share price during the last 30 trading days. Despiteclaiming350 million users, the company's browser has struggled in the oversaturated Western market. China could be a profitable arena for Opera, in part because Google's Chrome browserdoes not come preinstalled on Android phones in China like it does elsewhere. In addition, doing business in China without local partners is nigh impossible, but Opera could leverage the networks of Kunlun and Qihoo 360 if the deal goes through.
