Breach of privacy. How to avoid reporting that you have received WhatsApp and Facebook messages?
The WhatsApp and Facebook platforms use message arrival reports to tell the sender and recipient that the message has arrived. But some people don’t like these reports because they are an invasion of privacy, and they force you to respond to these messages even if they come at an inconvenient time. You might want to ignore someone and not let them know that you received the message.
The three platforms rely on different ways of viewing reports, but in the end the report comes to you and tells you that your post has reached the user.
And you can revoke read alert access to the user through these apps, and that’s because they are from the same developer.
How to turn off WhatsApp access reports:
You can cancel incoming message reports in WhatsApp by following these steps:
After opening the WhatsApp app, go to the settings menu by tapping the three dots at the top of the screen.
When you go to settings, click on Account, then click on Privacy, then you will find an option called Reading Reports.
You can turn this feature off from here, but you need to turn it off manually for individual chats as well as groups.
And when you close the Reading Reports, you close them completely across the platform, which means when you switch to a new phone, those reports stay closed.
But after disabling this feature, you won’t get these reports either, which means they won’t get any messages you send.
You can also cancel reading reports through iMessages in the same way.
How to disable reading reports on Facebook Messenger:
There is no way to turn off report reading in Facebook Messenger, but you can hide your online status in the app, which means you don’t appear online and are always turned off.
You can activate this feature by clicking on your profile picture and then deactivating the activity selection.
But there is a solution so that you can read the messages without the other party knowing it, and it takes some extra effort. By activating airplane mode before reading the message, it prevents the app from connecting to the internet or sending an alert to the servers. But make sure you close the app completely before opening it again.
Facebook is expected to integrate its quick messaging apps, which means communication via WhatsApp through the Messenger app, and vice versa.
If this happens, read reports will work on Facebook just like they do on WhatsApp. But until then, read reports work in different ways between WhatsApp and Facebook.
