Disable WhatsApps Blue Check Mark Message Read Confirmation

WhatsApp is now an essential way of effective communication in human being. This instant messaging app really making many people life easier as well as more emotional. WhatsApp DP not showing issue force developers to introduce manageable privacy settings which is really good thing in this internet world.

Yesterday WhatsApp rollout another set of most demanding update called “Recipient Message Read Checkmarks” using Blue check marks. Which is one of the trending topic in current internet world, from younger to older everyone is in surprise with those BLUE checkmarks. If you are one of those let me explain you why this update mean to be developed.


The only reason is to showcase your message reading activity to sender of message. If you ping X person and on receiving your message at X persons end you will see two gray ✓✓ checkmarks. But now onward if that person open your conversation and read your message  then instead of those gray ticks you will able to see two BLUE ✓✓ marks,which realize that receiver read his/her message. This task work vice a versa.


Though this demanding feature looks interesting, few tight privacy holders like love-birds, official people & corporate teams etc are not happy with this update as they still want to maintain their privacy by keeping their message reading activity undisclosed. Nobody is interested to fight with his/her GF/BF or boss using this technology punch.

  5. I agree with you 100%. I have seen many couples fighting over something like “You saw my message and didn’t reply. Why was that?” and many more. This feature is indeed a handy one but it also finishes privacy.
