In case you are wondering how to hide your Profile Picture and status from one person, here is a tutorial on that. After reading this you can easily hide your WhatsApp DP from a specific contact or a bunch of contacts. Read and follow and do let me know how it goes in the comment’s section down bellow. You will get the thing you want for sure.
This will be a short tutorial and I will post two methods of doing it. Both of them are no-root methods, however there are more methods available for rooted devices online. For the sake of the non-rooted users, we are going to keep it unroot-friendly and completely usable.
Hide WhatsApp Profile Picture and Status From One Person
This first method requires no software or anything like that. You just need to follow a few steps inside the app and outside it and you are done ! Let us have a look on how to do that.
1) click on th dotted icon at the top right corner and select settings
2) In that list, you can see many options but you need to go to “Account”.
3) Now, select privacy from the Account panel
4) Click on profile picture and select My contacts on the pop up list
5) Now remove the number of the person whom you dont want to share the profile picture from the contact list. In android devices, WhatsApp itself creates a additional contact of a person make sure you delete that too.
Here is a simpler one involving a third-party application. You can use it without rooting your phone and its completely free. Now, keep this in mind that some people have reported that it had’t worked for them properly.
- Go to Playstore, search for “WhatsNot” and install it.
- Open it and search for the contact from which you wanna hide your Status and DP
- That is it !
After following any of those methods, you will be able to send and receive messages from those contacts but they will not be able to see your DP or status. I have installed this application and found that it literally pulls out the contact from phone’s memory and makes you able to call and text them from it only. What it does basically is trick whatsapp that the contact is not there. You will be able to receive the messages from them but they won’t gonna see your DP and status.
