WhatsApp has updated its privacy features. WhatsApp Mod Apps have most of the features rolled out recently by the META owned Company. While the updates might reduce the use of Mod Apps, it is not a guarantee that users will shift back to the original App.
WhatsApp has made it possible for users to be in full control of who sees them on the App. Online Presence, Profile Photo, Status Privacy, Read Receipts have all received an update, offering more privacy to WhatsApp users.
