WhatsApp Profile Privacy

For many of us, WhatsApp is much more than just a messaging service. It has evolved into the modern style of living one’s life. Through the application we mark our presence in many communities and groups. People are now much more connected and bound to each other than ever before.

These days, it is difficult for us to retain our privacy because we may be under the observation of others.

 WhatsApp Profile Name Invisible

WhatsApp, the instant messaging service owned by Meta, has been experimenting with a number of new features in recent weeks. WhatsApp has developed many features that make sure that the user’s privacy is safe.

Updates to the cross-platform messaging app are frequently released in order to improve the user experience. The latest development of the application brings out a new feature, where the user could write their name as an invisible text.

The Meta owned messaging application insists the users to add their name. Thus, anyone with the number can find out the user’s name or can find out the number from a group with the help of the name given.
