I hate that one, it is usually done for ulterior motives. Fear people who do that and people that don't put profile photo especially when you are in a relationship with them, e get why


Some of us are private. I rarely put my picture as my dp. Instead I use work-related pictures, no ulterior motives.

In this age of unnecessary competition, subtle envy, fake friends & general taste for drama? I'll probably qualify as a potential assassin or worst with your opinions.
A Private life is the best. People can't make moves on you if they don't even know your next step. Especially in Nigeria with their primitive closet mentality & fondness of jumping to conclusions.

That is me, I even go further than that:

1. My WhatsApp number is different from my main number I call people on, if you think because you have my number, you can look me up or chat me...tough luck. I only give it to trusted insiders.

2. Last seen off.

3. DP only contacts.

4. Read Receipt off....Yes, I know I wouldn’t get a read receipt from you, but I dot care.

5. Blocked everyone from adding me to their nonsense WhatsApp group. You have to chat me first, tell me what this new group is all about, if I like it, I join...if I don’t I will skip it. Gone are the days, when I will wake up and are already a member of 5 additional groups.

6. About - Nobody.

7. Location - Nobody

8. Status - Nobody

9. Two steps verification - Enabled.

10. All WhatsApp Notifications - Muted.

11. WhatsApp banner - Muted.

12. Save picture & video to Album - Disabled

If you know any one I miss, let me know and I will add.

I've been noticing a recent trend on whatsapp which more people are adopting day by day, mostly guys

The act of removing last seen and putting off read receipt, it is very rude and disrespectful, last seen can be excused, but you see that read receipt, how will someone know his/her chat has been read? Even if one gets a reply afterward without the ticks turning blue, It still doesn't speak well of whoever does that cos he/she will be seen in a negative kind of way, when the read receipt is on, the person will actually appreciate the fact that his/her chat has been read, then wait for a reply at anytime

Imagine doing that to an elderly person, my brother did it to my Dad(removing read receipt), old man thought his whatsapp had problem, when he explained it to him, my Dad gave him a hella lecture he can't forget in a hurry, then instructed him to put it back on


I actually don't chat with any of my contacts that has its read receipt off, once I notice it, I immediately tune out, I recently asked one why he turned off his own, he gave no tangible reason, I politely told him I won't chat him anymore

So has anyone had same experience? How do you feel about it? I'd like us to share thoughts on it.....
It seems creepy to me, but then it's
meant for privacy reasons.

I'm using the two. I off read receipt because I hate it when you reply read my chats and fail to reply. it's ridiculous for me. the last seen is not to disturb myself when you ignore my chats or I ignore your chats. you will feel low self esteem...IMAGINE YOU CHAT SOMEONE TO DO SOMETHING FOR YHU AND THE SAME PERSON READ YOUR CHAT WITHOUT REPLYING BACK FOR TWO DAYS. IT'S BETTER YHU GIVE AN EXCUSE THAT YHU NEVER READ MY CHAT. I WILL TAKE IT LIKE THAT BCUS THERE'S NO EVIDENCE

Absolutely, I don't see any Biggie both either ways, if you turn on/off your read receipt and others. I don't treat such case as personal, yet I think is base on what the individual want and perhaps the mobile phone belongs to the fellow and a choice or personal decisions for reasons known to them.

Case's in that pool should be less of concerns to anyone, out grow such taught and mind your business, let's discuss "financial intelligence", "how to make money" and do business together.

OP, this thread was unnecessary. Getting irritated over something you have no control over. Repeat after me:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
