Recently Whatsapp has begin showing read status on it’s messaging app. According to WhatsApp, the two grey tick marks we see notified that the message has successfully delivered to the recipient’s phone. But now the double grey sign will turn blue when the user has read the message.
This newly launched featured on WhatsApp messenger has surely hurted many users in terms of privacy. This feature tends to pressurize users of having to reply to the user who has sent the message.
If you are worried about this feature too and want to get rid of it here is a short workaround. When you receive a message from another person and want to read the message without sending the read notification, turn off the data or wifi connectivity completely and read the message. Now close the app and reconnect to the internet. This way the double check marks remain grey.
