And even if you manage to avoid coming online, there are these constant alerts and stupid forwards. Annoying yeah?
So here are those five little hacks you can choose from to go invisible on WhatsApp. Read on!
Use a silent clip as WhatsApp notification tone
What is a silent notification tone? Hmm…. So a tone that is silent is a silent notification tone. Was that lame? Excuse me for that. Let’s get into the details.
All you have to do is record silence on your phone. Just go somewhere quiet with pin-drop silence in the air and simply record it. Now save it under a proper file name so that you can easily find it.
Next step. Open WhatsApp, go to the settings, notifications and then select your silent ringtone as your notification and call ringtone.
Now you’re all set. Next time you get a notification, you won’t even hear it. Why, because your ringtone is pure, golden silence! Now check your phone only when you want to, not because your WhatsApp is going crazy.
Disable WhatsApp notifications
Oh yes, you can do that as well. Simply turn off the notifications for WhatsApp. Go to settings, select WhatsApp, tap on ‘Notifications’ and disable all notifications, vibrations and pop-ups as well.
Now you will be getting the LED notifications. You can turn them off as well. That way you won’t be distracted by WhatsApp at all.
Open WhatsApp, go to notifications, pick ‘Light’, then select ‘None’.
Next, you can even delete WhatsApp shortcut from your home screen. That way you won’t see alerts unless you choose to.
Turn off the mobile data for WhatsApp
Turning off the mobile data seems like an option, but you can’t do that if you wish to continue using your data for some other purpose.
In this case, you can simply turn off the mobile data for WhatsApp.
Go to the phone settings, open Apps, select WhatsApp and click on ‘Force Stop’. That should work for you now.
Disable background data for WhatsApp
Pretty simple, yes. Now, this is only for Android users.
Go to Phone Settings, then click on the Data option and disable background data for WhatsApp.
Doing this means you have killed the app without uninstalling or deleting it – as long as you don’t open it. The moment you open the app again, it will again start working as usual.
Do not open WhatsApp after hitting ‘Force Stop’ button
Now, don’t end up opening WhatsApp on your device after you have force stopped it.
As soon as you open the WhatsApp, the sender will automatically get notified with a double tick of the delivery of their message.
So these were the five hacks for you to disappear from WhatsApp. You can undo all these steps as and when you want or need.
Happy invisible days! Until next time!
