How to Hide WhatsApp Profile Picture From Specific Contacts

If you don’t want your specific contact to see your WhatsApp profile picture then this guide is for you.

This guide explains how to hide a WhatsApp profile picture from a specific contact without deleting and blocking it.

I have used Android, iPhone, Desktop, and Web in this guide.

Hide WhatsApp Profile Picture From Certain Contacts

By default, your WhatsApp profile picture is visible to everyone.

But through the privacy settings, you can hide your WhatsApp profile picture from certain contacts.

Here are the steps to do that.

On Android

Open WhatsApp on your Android phone.

Tap on the vertical ellipsis or three vertical dots in the top-right corner.

Tap on “Settings” from the options that appear.

Tap on “Account.”

Tap on “Privacy.”

Tap on the “Profile photo.”

Now you see four options. Select “My contacts” if you only want to show your profile picture to your contacts. Select “My contacts except” if you want to show your profile picture to your specific contacts. Select “Nobody” if you want to hide your profile picture from everyone. In this guide, I’m teaching you how to hide your profile picture from your specific contacts, so I select the “My contacts except” option.

Now just select the contacts you don’t want to show your profile picture. And don’t select the contact from whom you want to show your profile picture. After selecting contacts, tap on the checkmark icon in the bottom right.

On iPhone

Open WhatsApp on your iPhone.

Tap on “Settings” in the bottom-right corner.

Tap on “Account.”

Tap on “Privacy.”

Tap on the “Profile photo.”

Select “My contacts except” from the options that appear.

Now just select the contacts you don’t want to show your profile picture. And don’t select the contact from whom you want to show your profile picture.

On Desktop or Web

Open WhatsApp on your computer or go to the WhatsApp web app.

Click the three horizontal dots in the top-right corner of the left sidebar.

Select “Settings” from the options that appear.

Click on “Privacy” in the left sidebar.

Click on the “Profile photo.”

Select the “My contacts except” option.

Now just select the contacts you don’t want to show your profile picture. And don’t select the contact from whom you want to show your profile picture. After selecting contacts, tap on the checkmark icon.
