WhatsApp Web: how to reply to a message without appearing ‘online’?

WhatsApp Web is a great tool to keep in touch with your friends, family and co-workers, since in a matter of moments you can share audios, photos, files, texts and more. However, at the end of the day, you may want to take a break and not all of your contacts know when you are ‘online’ so that you can review and respond to only a few chats. How to do it? Here we explain it to you.

Fortunately, there is a trick called ‘incognito mode’ or ‘ninja mode’ that allows you to chat with your contacts without appearing ‘online’. It is through a completely safe and easy-to-use Google Chrome extension. Here we explain how it works.

Although for this method of WhatsApp Web it is necessary to use a third-party program, you should not worry about your privacy, since the extension you have to use does not present invasive advertising and it will not have access to your data either. Just follow these instructions:

That’s how simple you will go to the ‘incognito mode’ of WhatsApp Web. If you want to one day disable or remove the tool WAIncognito just click on the extension icon and click delete from Chrome.

In addition to being able to read the messages from the PC and answer only the chat you want, without the need for your contacts to see that you are connected, with this extension you can also see the statuses of your friends without them knowing.
