Since 2017, you can post temporary content on WhatsApp. Just like Instagram and Facebook Stories, WhatsApp Status is only usable for 24 hours, after that it disappears. Another element in common with Instagram, is that also in the messaging app a user can see all the contacts who have seen his Status.
And here comes the fun: the person you are interested in posts a lot of temporary content and you would like to look at all of them without being discovered? Does your arch-enemy throw you a few barbs via statuses and you don't want to give them the satisfaction of finding you among the contacts they've viewed? The messaging app has thought of you and everyone else who wants to see a WhatsApp status without being seen. The procedure to act undisturbed is really easy and can be performed on both iPhone and Android smartphones. It only takes a few taps to peek at WhatsApp statuses without being seen.
