How to hide the WhatsApp profile picture

WhatsApp profile picture

At WhatsApp there’s a way to keep the profile picture hidden for some specific contacts, those curious ones you have stored in your phone, sometimes even if you don’t want to.

To achieve this, you only have to follow a few simple steps.WhatsApp profile picture

The issue of privacy on the Internet, social platforms, and messaging applications like WhatsApp often gets out of hand.

For example, when Zuckerberg’s team launched the triple-check update, a great deal of controversy broke out.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on the point of view) from the WhatsApp configuration menu you can deactivate the indiscreet three blue moths, as well as manage other options dedicated to privacy.

And it’s just from this menu that you can hide your profile picture to whomever you like.

How to hide WhatsApp profile picture for all contacts

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Click on the three dots to the right.
  3. Select Settings > Accounts > Privacy.
  4. Now click on Profile image.
  5. Select the None option.

Now your profile picture will no longer be visible on WhatsApp to any of your contacts. However, if there is a photo on the phone list, it can also be seen on WhatsApp.

If you want the profile picture to be visible to everyone again, follow the same route and select All.

How to hide the WhatsApp profile picture to a specific contact

If you want to hide your profile picture only from a few contacts (your mother, ex-partners, co-workers) you’ll have to try a little harder because WhatsApp doesn’t allow it. However, there is a solution:

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Click on the three dots to the right.
  3. Select Settings> Accounts> Privacy.
  4. Click Profile Image.
  5. Select the My Contacts option.
  6. Open your phone book.
  7. Remove the contact you want to deny access to your profile picture (write down their phone number in a note so as not to lose them or put them on the blacklist).

Now you can be 100% sure that this “uncomfortable” person for you won’t be able to see your WhatsApp profile picture anymore.
