In the next update of "Whatsapp", users will be able to hide the information that they are online.
It will be possible to hide this information from everyone or only certain people.
For example, the user will be able to hide the fact, that he is currently online, only from people in the contact list or from all Whatsapp users.
Currently, users can hide the information about the last time they were active on the messenger, but it is not yet possible to hide the information that shows that they are online.
The corresponding function is planned to be implemented in the beta version of the messenger for Android, iOS and personal computers.
