WhatsApp Stalkers exists in everyone’s Contacts. You simply can’t ignore the fact that you will always need to stay private from some people, no matter who they are. In case you are wondering how to hide your Profile Picture and status from one person Or perhaps you just fancy being a little mysterious for the day.

Send a public message privately
If you’ve got a generic announcement to make – an invite to a weekend BBQ or an intervention about your friend’s unhealthy obsession with KFC – and you don’t want to do it on the loudmouth platform that is Facebook, this feature works much the same way as BCC-ing people in an email.
Your recipients will get the message as if it was a privately composed one, oblivious to the fact that you’ve sent the exact same invite to 342 other people. Great for saving time, terrible if they all reply yes.
How: On the top-left-hand corner of your WhatsApp Chats window, just below the search bar, you’ll notice a Broadcast Lists. Tap on it for the option to create a new list of contacts you want your message to go out to, and message away like you would normally.
Tag people in WhatsApp
It is possible to tag other members of WhatsApp group message in order to get their attention, even if they mute the conversation on WhatsApp. To notify any member of a group message that you’re trying to get their attention simply type @; when you do this, a list of group members will appear above and select them from the list that appears.
There may be some contacts that you want to know instantly if they are calling you or sending you messages. To ensure that they do not blend in the crowd, you can change your specific alert tone, so you recognize when that particular person has sent you a message or is WhatsApp calling you.
How: Go to Chats > Specific chat > Tap on contact name at top > Custom Notifications
Stop people seeing your messages
Ever passed your phone to a friend and instantly panicked about the messages they might see come through? Yeah, we haven’t either. For those that have, you can turn off message preview on iOS so only the contact’s name will appear, rather than their life story.
How: Go to Settings > Notifications > Toggle off Show Preview
Backup your WhatsApp Data
How: iPhone users get the option of backing their chat history to iCloud automatically on a daily/weekly/monthly schedule. If it’s only selected chat histories you desire, click on the chat you want, then the user’s name and finally email conversation to yourself.
How: Android users can go to ‘Settings’, ‘Chats and calls’, and select the ‘Chat backup’ option, which will let you setup an automatic Google Drive backup.
Recover Deleted Chats
WhatsApp backs up all your chats every day at 2 AM in the morning (if you have not manually changed this). So, if you have deleted anything dated prior to 2 AM the same day, you can easily recover them.
To recover the deleted chats, you need to uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp. After reinstalling, while setting up the app, you will get an option to ‘Restore’ the messages. Simply tap on it and WhatsApp will restore all your messages. Please keep in mind that any message that you received after the backup time cannot be recovered!
