How To Use Privacy - WhatsApp

WhatsApp will automatically set your Privacy Settings to allow any WhatsApp user to view your read receipts, last seen, profile photo and status. If you don’t share your last seen, you won’t be able to see other people’s last seen. Please note there is no way to hide your online status.
