If you are a frequent user of WhatsApp, you may have encountered situations where you cannot immediately respond to a message. Whether it’s due to a busy schedule or you simply cannot attend to your phone at the moment, you may still want to know what the other person said without them knowing that you have read their message. Fortunately, there are some tricks you can try to keep your messages private and maintain your privacy, without the need to respond right away. Although there are numerous methods on Android, this guide will focus on options that are available for iOS users.
Deactivate the reading confirmation
One way to prevent others from receiving a double blue check on their message, indicating that it has been read, is to deactivate the reading confirmation feature in your settings. Here’s how you can do it:
1. Open WhatsApp on your iPhone.
2. Navigate to the “Settings” section at the bottom right corner.
3. Go to the “Account” option, followed by “Privacy.”
4. Scroll down until you find the “Read confirmation” option and deactivate it.
Peek and Pop
Another way to read a message without the sender knowing is by using the Peek and Pop function on WhatsApp. Here’s how you can do it:
1. Open the app and locate the chat where you want to read the message.
2. Press down and hold the conversation without entering it.
3. A thumbnail of the conversation will appear, which can be used to read the full message.
4. Once you have read the message, release your hold on the conversation.
