If you write and send a WhatsApp message with your Samsung Galaxy S8, you will see two blue ticks when the contact has read this message. Conversely, your contact also sees, of course, whether you have read his message or not.
There are situations where you do not want the contact to see you read your WhatsApp message. In this case, you now have the following options on the Samsung Galaxy S8:
- Deactivate read receipts
To do this, please open WhatsApp on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and tap in the overview on the three-dot icon and in the menu on "Settings". Continue to the entry "Account" and from here to "Privacy". Scroll now down to "read receipts".
Disables the option by unchecking the checkbox. Keep in mind that by implication this means that you will no longer receive a read report from your contacts!
- Turn off the Internet before reading
If you do not want to send a reading report immediately in very special situations, then you can do the following on the Samsung Galaxy S8 before reading the WhatsApp message:
Turn off your mobile Internet or W-Lan. This will allow you to read the message first and a read report will not be sent.
You now know two ways to fool the reading report on WhatsApp News on your Samsung Galaxy S8.
