Similar to the stories of Facebook and Instagram, WeChat Allow users to upload status. However, contrary to others, it allows you to view status updates privately without worrying about your name appearing in front of people. Since you are looking for the same content, here are three quick ways to check someone’s WhatsApp status without letting them know on your Android or iPhone.
Check someone’s WhatsApp status on Android or iPhone without letting them know
Once you check someone’s WhatsApp status, they will know that you have viewed it. If you want to keep a low profile or don’t want to appear in the status viewer list, this is not what you want.
You can check the status of your friends, family, or any contacts by disabling read receipts, offline or checking the hidden WhatsApp status folder without letting them know. All methods are detailed below.
1. Turn off read receipts (Android, iOS)
In our guide Read WhatsApp messages privately, We told you that disabling read receipts will hide the double blue check mark of the message. For WhatsApp status, it works similarly.
To disable read receipts:
- Open WhatsApp on your iPhone or Android phone.
- Click on the three-dot menu in the upper right corner-select set up.
- Click on account And choose privacy.
- Here, disable toggle Read receipt.
You can now check your WhatsApp status without letting others know that you have checked them-they won’t see your name at all. When you are done, you can reopen it.
Please note that disabling read receipts also means that you will not be able to see viewers in your WhatsApp status.
2. Offline (Android, iOS)
Another way is to turn off your mobile data or disconnect from Wifi. You can then view the status of any contact without letting them know that you have seen it.
However, you will only hide when you are offline. Once you are online, other people will see that you have seen their status.
It is best to use this method a few minutes before the status is about to expire. This way you don’t have to stay offline for a long time. Or, Android users can force WhatsApp to stop-even if you go online, you will not appear in the viewer’s list.
3. From the file manager (Android)
When you open the “Status” tab, WhatsApp will automatically download status images and videos to speed up access. These files are saved in a hidden folder stored in the phone. You can access it as follows:
- Open the file manager on your Android phone.
- navigation Internal memory > WeChat > media.
- Here, open the file named “.state”.
Here, you can see all the status images and videos shared by your contacts on WhatsApp. Since you did not open them directly in WhatsApp, others will never know that you have seen their status.
Can’t find the folder? If you can’t see the folder, go to the file manager settings and enable “Show hidden files”.
On phones running Android 11, you will be Internal storage> Android> media> com.WhatsApp> WhatsApp> media.
