Have you ever received a WhatsApp message and you’re a bit scared to let the sender know you’ve read it?
HERE IS HOW TO READ WHATSAPP MESSAGES WITHOUT NOTIFYING SENDER
There’s actually a quick and easy solution to that. Whether you have some pestering you for a reply, trying to avoid someone or you want to send your bestie some screenshots before responding – this is an easy ‘hack’.
The trick to opening a message without the sender seeing those dreaded double blue ticks or turning your blue ticks off is actually quite simple.
FOUR STEPS TO READ MESSAGES WITHOUT SENDER KNOWING
CapitalFM provides just four easy steps so you can read a message (even take a screenshot if you want) and the sender will never know a thing!
When that notification pops up, DO NOT open it – well, obviously.No matter how long the message is and how curious you are, just hold on!
Slide down on your shortcuts or click on your settings and look for ‘aeroplane mode’ or ‘flight mode’. Turn this option on ASAP! This simple setting temporarily suspends all signals on your smartphone.
Now you’re in the all-clear. Open up that long message that’s wrecking your nerves and comfortably read it without the sender knowing.If you want, you can even take a screenshot at this point and send it to whoever (or save it for the future).
Once you’ve read the message and taken your screenshot CLOSE the app and we mean, close it properly! Now all you have to do is swipe down again and turn your ‘aeroplane mode’ or ‘flight mode’ off and Bob’s your uncle.
