How to Hide Last Seen on WhatsApp [Amazing tips]

The timestamp in WhatsApp which tells whether the user is Online or was Last Seen at a particular date and time can now be hidden from all users or from all unknown users. This option to hide the last seen time by the instant messaging service provider has been categorized in three types so you can show information to:
 Hide Last Seen on WhatsApp
Everyone
When the information will be visible to all WhatsApp users.
 Hide Last Seen on WhatsApp
My contacts
When the information will only be visible to users added in your WhatsApp contact list.

Nobody

When the information cannot be seen by any WhatsApp user and neither can you see their Last Seen information. Unfortunately when you are Online then the information will be visible to all.
First, decide what you want to set the option to, then use the following steps to change the setting, depending upon your platform.
