How to Hide Last Seen on WhatsApp

Last seen refers to the last time people used WhatsApp. By default, everyone can see when was the last time you used WhatsApp.

But through privacy settings, you can hide your last seen status so that no one can see when you used WhatsApp.

This guide explains how to hide your last seen status on WhatsApp. In this guide, I have used Android, iPhone, Desktop, and Web to hide my last seen status.
