WhatsApp is working on a new “stealth mode” that hides your online status.

This feature will allow users to scroll through the app without their friends or contacts knowing.

“There could be several reasons why people want to use WhatsApp in stealth mode: for example, some users want to use WhatsApp without being bothered by other people, or feel persecuted by someone,”WABetaInfo said.

Stealth Mode will go live in the Privacy section of Settings, directly under the feature that lets you hide ‘Last Seen’ from other users.

WABetaInfo spotted this feature in the beta version of iOS, but claims it will be available for Android and desktop as well.

WABetaInfo wrote in a blog post, ‘Unfortunately, this feature is under development, so we do not know details about when it will be released to the public.

WhatsApp rolled out another feature last month that allows users to take their message history with them when they switch from Android to iPhone.

Earlier it was only possible to transfer WhatsApp data from Apple devices to Google’s Android platform.
