WhatsApp is the world’s largest and most widely used instant messaging service. It is the default messaging service in many countries and has 14 percent of all people worldwide as monthly active users.

If you own an iPhone and prefer WhatsApp to iMessage, here are ten settings you should modify to enhance your privacy and messaging experience.

A) Privacy settings you must change

As a user, you have complete control over what personal data is collected, activity status, and so on that, you share with other WhatsApp users.

You can control who can see your Last Seen and Online Profile Photo, About, Status, and even add you to WhatsApp Groups. You can choose between Everyone, My Contacts, Nobody, or My Contacts Except.

The “My Contacts Except…” feature is helpful because it allows you to restrict contacts without blocking them. To change these privacy settings, follow the steps outlined below.

Let us use Last Seen & Online as an example, and you can replicate the process to make the remaining changes.
