WhatsApp to let you hide profile picture from certain people

WhatsApp is finally working on a new feature, we all have been waiting for. The Facebook-owned messaging app may soon make it easier for you to hide your last seen, and profile picture from selected people. Currently, the “my contacts expect” feature is available only for WhatsApp status. No privacy setting in WhatsApp lets you hide that you are online.

When it comes to hiding blue ticks or profile pictures, WhatsApp offers only 3 options.

1. You can either let everyone see your profile picture and last seen by choosing “Everyone”.

2. You can keep it limited to the contacts in your phonebook via “My contacts”.
3. You can choose “Nobody” and hide your DP and Blue ticks from everyone.

However, there is no option to hide the above-mentioned things from specific people. This is what WhatsApp was spotted working on recently. This is a much-needed feature as there are times when you don’t want to show some of the people when you were last online on WhatsApp.

The feature is currently under development and WhatsApp is yet to announce whether it would be set for stable rollout or not.
