World’s most popular messaging service just got an update today which now sends a confirmation to the other person when a message is read in a conversation. The previously grey tickmarks now turn to blue as soon as a person reads the messages. We found a solution to bypass this!
This is what the new Whatsapp tickmarks are all about :
The social pressure to reply to a message might be greater if someone knows if you have actually read a message or not, making some people uncomfortable so instead of all that, we have found a simple solution to avoid making your tickmarks turning blue!
- When you receive a whatsapp message while you’re online or on your lock screen, don’t open it at first, let it get received with two grey tickmarks
- Switch off all your mobile internet and Wi-Fi
- Open whatsapp and read the conversation
- close the conversation, come back home and turn your Wi-Fi again
That’s it. This will not send any message read confirmation to the other user and you’re not obliged to reply yet 😉
