Gone are the days when you could see a message and ignore it, later using the excuse that is was never delivered or you just didn’t see it. You cannot sneak out of arrangements so easily these days, if you someone has messaged you on WhatsApp, they know when you have read it and they know when you are online and able to reply.

It can be handy for knowing that your messages are sending and being received, but it has created a whole new kind of social media politics to contend with.

whatsapp last seen mean

You can find a person’s status when you open a conversation with them, their status will be under their name and may say ‘Last Seen’, ‘online’ or ‘typing..’

Online and ‘last seen’ tell you if your contacts are online, or the last time they were actually using WhatsApp. Online means that your contact has WhatsApp open in the foreground on their device and is connected to the Internet.

What does last seen mean?

According to the WhatsApp ‘last seen’ refers to the last time the contact used WhatsApp. Through WhatsApp privacy settings, you have the option to control who can see your ‘last seen’ – but they warn that  you cannot hide if you’re online. However, it does not necessarily mean they have read your message.

To change this, go to ‘Settings,’ click ‘Account’ > ‘Privacy’ > ‘Last Seen.’ Here, you can tweak your settings so only your contacts can see when you were last using the app, or so no one can. These should work for iOS and Android devices.
