hide your WhatsApp account

You probably have a WhatsApp audience that you would rather not have. As soon as you create a WhatsApp account with your number, anyone who already has your number can send you a message through this application. You also have the right to decide who may or may not be able to access you in order to protect your privacy.

If you want to hide your unwanted contacts from your WhatsApp account, you need to turn off the ability to block this messenger. Blocking a contact in WhatsApp assures you that the contact will no longer be able to message you or view updates from you.

Follow these steps to block your unwanted WhatsApp contacts:

1. First, open the WhatsApp app and click on the Settings option in the lower right corner of the screen.

If WhatsApp opens on a chat page, first tap the Back button in the upper left corner of the screen.

3. In the new window that opens, click on Privacy.

4. Tap the Blocked option near the bottom of the Privacy page to see a list of WhatsApp blocks.

5. Click Add New at the top of this page. If you have already blocked a contact, Add New will appear at the bottom of the contact name.

6. Now select a contact to block to add to this list.
