Here you’ll find a collection of nearly 40 tips and tricks that iPhone and Android users can use for their WhatsApp account. By reading this comprehensive guide, you will be able to get a clear idea of how WhatsApp works, the hidden options for users and the chat secrets you should be using now.
Hey, guys! It’s your dear friend Frankie who’s here again to give you a new understanding of WhatsApp. In this article we’ll show you the latest tips and tricks for a messaging application (and not just stupid things, as you might think). You can use this message from WhatsApp as a complete ninja once you understand some of these top secret features and tricks.
Below is a selection of serious content, ranging from a few tips and tricks you may have already learned and used, to the most secret strategies such as Secret Chat on WhatsApp, sending a fake location, or even how to use WhatsApp on two devices.
Thanks to this ninja method, WhatsApp won’t keep any more secrets from you. You have unlimited knowledge to master this Facebook messaging application.
Now all you have to do is concentrate on choosing the best weapon and go into battle. Okay, I may have strayed a little from the ninja analogy – but it was a little exciting. What you really need to do is take your smartphone and learn from it together.
I have written over 100 WhatsApp tutorials on my blog, which are handled by over a million users each year. I’ve decided to combine some of these topics and strategies in this mega guide to show you clearly what it takes to master WhatsApp.
Ninja method: 42 WhatsApp Tips and Tricks
In order to make this guide clearer for those looking for specific content, I have decided to divide the information here into three themes:
- General tips
- Tips for chatting
- Privacy Tips
WatsApp General tips
In this category, I have put together a list of tips and tricks that can help you make better use of WhatsApp in general.
This can be advice to help you in your daily life or for special occasions, for example. B. If you are traveling, have problems with the smartphone you are using but still need to use WhatsApp, or are looking for a way to set up two separate WhatsApp accounts on the same device.
Why waste any more time here? Let’s get started.
1. Accessing your WhatsApp account from another device
Because you may be one of the many people who forget everything in the world, you can leave your mobile phone in the car or even at home. Personally, I’ve done it hundreds of times.
You cannot read messages you receive on WhatsApp without accessing your smartphone. However, there are ways to bypass this problem and access your WhatsApp using someone else’s device via WhatsApp Web or Join.
WhatsApp Web is an online service that allows you to access your account through a browser.
Join, on the other hand, is a separate application for Android phones that is able to display notifications received on multiple devices on a single device. When you use this feature, you can view WhatsApp notifications on the second phone and even reply to those messages on the second phone.
If you’d like to learn more about this process, please read my guide on how to access my WhatsApp from another phone.
However, none of these methods is reliable, as you will need to connect the account to a second device before you can use one of these methods. A good ninja is ready to face any opponent, ready to make a strong decision.
2. Saving WhatsApp photos or videos to your phone
It’s incredibly useful knowledge. How many times have you received photos and videos you want to record on your phone with a gallery or camera roll?
Surprisingly, there are actually two ways to do this, one used for Android phones and the other for iOS devices.
Android – Photos downloaded from the WhatsApp folder are stored in the WhatsApp/Media/WhatsApp Pictures folder located in the main storage on the device. Access can be gained via a file management application such as X-Plore File Manager.
iPhone – To save images to the iOS Picture Roller, open a message with the image you want to download and press the Save button (the square with a top arrow) in the lower left corner of the screen. In the new menu that appears, choose Download. The image is copied from the original and stored in the camera roll on the camera.
For more information on how to proceed, see the tutorial I published under the title : To back up WhatsApp media to your phone or PC.
This process can also be useful for freeing up space on WhatsApp and cleaning up the archive.
These methods will only work if you have disabled the automatic download of new media sent or received through WhatsApp. If you haven’t already done so, WhatsApp creates a folder in the Gallery (Android) or Camera Roll (iPhone) application with all the media you get from one of your WhatsApp chats.
3 Sending images without loss of quality
You may not be aware that WhatsApp always compresses images and other media content, which can result in a loss of quality and valuable detail. This reduces the time needed to send the file, but the quality leaves a lot to be desired.
However, on WhatsApp you can send high quality and high resolution images to your contacts. This process varies slightly depending on the type of device.
Android – Open the chat of the person you want to send the photo to. Select the paperclip icon, and then select Documents > Browse Other Documents > Images > Camera.
iPhone – If you use an iPhone, you have one more step in the process. You open the gallery with your photos, select the file you want to send and decide to share it. You can save the image in iBooks, among other things. Creates a PDF file that can be shared via the Staple > Documents icon, etc. so that the recipient receives it in full resolution.
Instructions for performing each step can be found on this link: Send photos to WhatsApp without loss of quality.
This is a tip that can be very useful when you want to print or share an image with other social media such as Instagram or Facebook. Real WhatsApp ninjas leave nothing to chance – the details of the photos are crucial, because it is the differences in resolution that separate a beautiful photo from a large one.
4. Make sure someone has registered your number in theaddress book.
What you may not know is that WhatsApp has a feature that allows you to see which of your contacts have stored a phone number in their contact list.
This can be useful in several ways, for example. B. if the girl or guy you like has made a commitment to keep your number in her or his circle of frequent communication by keeping your number. Although this does not mean that the person will respond to your feelings, it can be a good place to start.
I’m sure it’s some kind of high-level spy technology, right? But it’s really not complicated.
The process is the same for iPhone and Android devices and starts with the WhatsApp menu (three-point for Android or menu on iPhone) and selecting New Broadcast. This feature allows you to send a message to everyone you have added to your contacts.
After opening this section, a list will appear and you will be able to see some numbers that do not have a name because they are not stored in the contact list. These are accounts that you have and have not added.
I have written a step-by-step guide for those who have my number on their contact list.
You’re really starting to turn into a WhatsApp ninja. With this trick you can get important information about others in your contacts and beyond. I’m proud of what you’ve accomplished so far, and we’re just getting started.
5. Spam message Contacts for WhatsApp
This knowledge can help alleviate what can undoubtedly be a considerable neck pain.
A boring contact stored in your address book can send you non-stop messages or advertisements for a company or product all day long. This is an antagonistic behavior that often can only be remedied by marking the account as spam.
The process is quite simple and does not differ much between iPhone and Android.
Android – Press the three-point icon in the upper right corner, select Advanced Options, and then select Report.
iPhone – From the top panel, touch the person’s name or number > Report Contact > Report and Block.
If you want a more detailed description of how to do this, or even what happens to the contact after it is reported, you should consult the tutorial I wrote under : How to report someone as spam on WhatsApp.
Reporting a contact as spam is one of the best tools in the WhatsApp Ninja arsenal. It is important to remember that messages are anonymous, which means that you strike discreetly and secretly, like a ninja.
6. Final removal of contacts
If you need other ways to get rid of stubborn and annoying contacts, you always have the option to completely remove the contact and the available feeds.
Let’s say you broke up with your ex because he cheated on you, and you’re so cheated that you don’t even want to see his picture or information – that solves your problem.
Following these steps, this contact will not only be removed from your WhatsApp contact list, but also from your phone’s contact list.
To complete the removal of a contact, you must lock that user.
That’s what you do:
- Open WhatsApp and go to Settings.
- Account > Privacy > Locked
- Select Add New and select the contact you want to block from the list.
If you need more information or advice on this topic, I have written a detailed article on how to permanently remove a WhatsApp contact.
This is a complete ninja attack maneuver and much more devastating than simply marking a contact as spam or blocking a number in your application. But it may be absolutely necessary, so use this tip responsibly.
7. Find out who blocked you.
It is one of the most demanded WhatsApp things by people who read my blogs. Sometimes it can be useful to know if someone has blocked you, especially if you have tried to contact them and they don’t respond.
My ex-boyfriend blocked me from even saying merry Christmas to her this year. (Honestly, I understand. I haven’t been very nice.)
It’s not hard to find out if someone has blocked you on WhatsApp, but it’s also not as easy as getting a notification. You have to apply a different strategy.
I couldn’t sleep until I knew this question was unanswered, and I finally developed a system of 5 methods to know for sure if you were stuck.
The system works as follows:
In these options RC specifies the reliability factor
- Technology Last visit (RC 45%)
- Profile photo material (RC 65%)
- Single tick technique (RC 55%)
- Almost perfect technique (RC 90 – 99%).
- Group chat technique (RC 100% – But beware!)
I won’t go into detail about these elements of my system here, but you can read about each of them in my How to Find Who Blocked You on WhatsApp guide.
And the WhatsApp Ninja checks his enemies before he goes into action. To find out if you are excluded, follow the steps below. You can now know which contacts you can trust and which you cannot.
8. Use WhatsApp without your phone number
Imagine you have a business and you need to communicate with a customer via WhatsApp, but you don’t want them to know your phone number at home. What are you doing? Buying a new card? No, that would take too long. Are you giving up? Never – giving up is not an option for aspiring WhatsApp ninjas. The solution here is to learn how to use WhatsApp without your mobile phone number.
You read that well. You can use WhatsApp without linking it to your personal phone number. This is one of the expert WhatsApp tricks you can learn here!
There are two ways to do it:
- You can use a temporary phone number
- Use applications such as ChatSim
He is free to use the first method, although freedom often imposes certain restrictions. ChatSim costs a bit of money, but it gives you full access to Messenger as if you were using a separate SIM card.
I explain the two options in a guide that I have drawn up on this subject: How to use WhatsApp without a phone number.
There are a few reasons why you should use this tip, among other things to prevent unwanted contacts from getting your personal number. You can also use this method to fool a friend or send a message to a loved one on the other side of the world if you have lost or abandoned your phone.
9. Using a WhatsApp account on two devices
If you need to use two mobile phones for business and personal purposes, it can get complicated. Wouldn’t it be easier to access a WhatsApp account on both phones, so you only need one?
This trick allows you to use your WhatsApp account on multiple devices.
How is that possible? Use the WhatsApp Web online service. If you have access to this service, you can set up the same account on multiple devices, as long as all phones have access to the Internet. The WhatsApp application must be installed on one of these phones.
You can also view the full tutorial on using WhatsApp on two devices at the same time.
Pay attention: This trick works for smartphones and tablets of all operating systems.
This is a tip that can be useful when you need to manage two phones for work and personal use.
10. Using two WhatsApp accounts on the same device
Do you want real ninja skills? Try having two WhatsApp accounts on the same device (Android or iPhone).
It is now enough to pay attention to the problems that can be solved in this way. You can use one account for your work and the other for your personal business, such as communicating with friends and family.
You can also choose to offer one for spicy love stories and one that you can consult regularly for all your regular discussions. That’s what people will see when they look at your phone.
How do you get more than one WhatsApp account on your device? This question can be answered in two ways:
- Parallel Space is an application created for Android and iPhone that allows you to duplicate applications used on your mobile device.
- Guest mode – this method only works for Android. You can add a guest user to your phone so you can use its features as if it were a brand new device. You can login to WhatsApp with your new details.
If you need more information, you can get detailed information about these options, including setting up parallel storage or using guest mode for your device. Look at my guide: How can I have two WhatsApp accounts for one smartphone?
It’s one of my favorite WhatsApp things I’ve shared. Now you don’t need two different phones for two different bills, saving you money and avoiding the headaches of using two phones.
11. Change your number in WhatsApp
You may not be aware that you can change your information without uninstalling and reinstalling WhatsApp. If you want to change your number but use the same device, there is a solution to this problem.
As part of this service, there is a feature that allows you to transfer your account to a new phone number without missing a single call. The process is simple and works the same on Android and iPhone devices.
Once you have opened WhatsApp, go to Settings > Account > Change Number. Once you’ve checked the new number, you’re ready to go.
All groups to which you join or to which you have been invited will immediately receive a message that you have changed your number. This is more for security reasons, because the application uses end-to-end encryption. Individual chats that you have activated will not receive this notification.
You can learn more about this process in the instructions for changing your WhatsApp number.
With this tip, you don’t have to worry about the headaches that can occur if you change numbers while keeping the same device. This tip can also be useful for those who travel regularly and change their SIM card. You can always keep all calls and contacts active.
12. Data transfer to a new phone without loss of calls
We’ve all become good enough to switch to a new phone model every two or three years. When the time comes to make changes, there is always the concern that transferring information from one device to another, for example, can lead to the loss of account information. B. Manage your WhatsApp contacts and calls.
When you trade in your current smartphone for a new model, you no longer have to worry about losing information. You may not know it, but there are many ways to make this transition without disrupting the conversations.
Being a WhatsApp ninja master myself, I have found 7 methods to transfer information:
- I have two to move WhatsApp from Android to Android.
- 4 ways to transfer an application from one iPhone to another.
- 2 ways to transfer WhatsApp from Android to iPhone (or vice versa).
I don’t want to go into too much detail in this huge guide because it would take a long time. If you need information about this process, you can follow some of the steps I described in another guide – How to transfer WhatsApp to a new phone.
Ninjas aren’t intimidated by anything, so replacing your phone and installing WhatsApp shouldn’t be a difficult task. It is important to protect all your active calls, and having this information available can help you avoid transmission problems.
13. Using WhatsApp on a Mac or PC.
Many of the people who read this content are among those who use a computer on a daily basis. Some people use it for work and others for entertainment, and it’s important to remember that you can use this service on your PC or Mac without limitations.
It’s easy to see how much fun it is not to have to constantly move your phone to answer and read messages sent via WhatsApp. All this can be done via the monitor of the computer used.
There are actually two ways to use WhatsApp on the PC and Mac:
- WhatsApp web site
- WhatsApp application installed on Windows and Mac computers.
For this topic alone, I have created two separate tutorials depending on the operating system. You can refer to the WhatsApp for PC User Guide.
Using WhatsApp on your PC or Mac can be useful when you’re working and can’t access your phone. The real ninjas here know how to deal with any situation they find themselves in. Recording this trick will give you one less problem.
14. Changing the language on WhatsApp
You may not know how to do this, but you may need to change the language of WhatsApp at some point. Perhaps you have recently moved to a new country and would like to dedicate yourself fully to your new environment. I remember when I first moved to Italy and my in-laws and made Italian our main language for a few months.
Although it is not too difficult to change the language, there is a drawback to this approach: you end up changing the language of the whole device.
No matter which device you use, there is a unique process:
If you have an iPhone:
- Go to Settings > General > Language and Region.
- Tap the option to adjust the iPhone’s language settings.
- Select the desired language from the available drop-down list.
- Confirm by clicking on Done in the upper right corner.
If you are using an Android device:
- Open parameters
- Search and select the language and input.
- Select a language
- Select the new desired language
You can read more about this in my detailed guide to WhatsApp local settings: Here’s how to change it.
It won’t be a gadget you need every day, but it can certainly help you learn how to change the language settings in WhatsApp.
15. Adding new contacts to WhatsApp
You have probably noticed that it is impossible to start a conversation with someone on WhatsApp if you have not added them to your directory. There is currently no function for sending messages to subjects that are not saved as contacts.
Although it can sometimes be frustrating, it is actually quite simple and can be done in seconds.
Whether you’re using Android or an iPhone, the process doesn’t change much. Open your cats. Tap the icon to start a new chat, then go to the menu and then to Refresh.
Literally. It’s very easy to do, but if you have any problems, you can take a look at the article I wrote on how to add national and international songs to WhatsApp.
You can’t communicate with them without saving a number in your address book. This can only happen if the unknown caller first sends you an SMS.
16. Free international calls
Everyone has family members or friends who live all over the world, or maybe you have chosen to live abroad. Maybe you’re on vacation.
You may not have realized that you can use WhatsApp for international calls to talk to your loved ones for free. It’s like you’re both in the same country.
Making international calls via the application is the same as making national calls, the only difference is that you keep the correct contact details (with the country code).
I’ve written a whole guide on how to call international toll free numbers abroad on WhatsApp. I suggest you take a look at it.
With WhatsApp, you can easily make calls abroad or to a foreign number, but you can also use it to set up conference calls. It is a valuable tool for work, not just for relationships with friends.
The long process of becoming a WhatsApp ninja involves many more steps, so let’s not waste any time.
In this section of the Maxi-Guide you’ll find tips and tricks designed specifically for WhatsApp cats. Here you will find interesting options, including secret messages, hidden chat and much more.
17. Diagram message
Planning a message is one of the tricks of the ninja experts! Think about the usefulness of reminding your partner to shop at 7pm, but you are engaged in CrossFit or another intense activity? Maybe you should send a message to a customer on the other side of the world, and don’t want to bother him where he is after hours.
There are two ways to accomplish this task:
- WhatsApp web site
- Applications such as SkedIT for Android or planned for iPhone.
If you are using WhatsApp Web, set up automatic reply messages that allow you to reply to the message, even if you do not have access to your device at that time.
Instead, you can use applications such as SkedIT and Scheduled to send messages at specific times via WhatsApp.
I’ll get back to you on this in the instructions: Program a message on WhatsApp.
A real WhatsApp ninja should be able to do more than one thing at a time. Think of all applications! I have a friend who uses this technique to regularly send messages to his partner when he is in the arms of his lover. (And no – I will NEVER tell you his name, even if you torture me for it!)
18. Permanently removing calls
More often than you think, you will encounter unpleasant calls on WhatsApp that are best deleted. By erase, I mean erase all traces of the call.
You can be a man (or a girl) who likes to flirt, even if you have a partner. Or you recently started a conversation with your ex and you don’t want your jealous partner to know that you might back down.
This is what few people know: even if you remove the string from WhatsApp, it will remain on their servers for at least a month and can easily be found by spyware such as mSpy or recovery applications. Before you panic, be aware that you can completely remove these chains by taking the appropriate measures.
The Umat iMyFone is needed to permanently remove these strings from the server. It’s great software for iPhone and Android. iMyPhone Umat eliminates all calls and prevents any chance of recovery to ensure your privacy.
I explain the whole process and the use of the software in the manual: To delete a chat in WhatsApp
Removing all traces of the offending call from WhatsApp and its server can prevent the discovery of the extramarital affair you want to keep private. Cats that are then removed cannot be repaired.
19. Sending secret messages (secret chat on WhatsApp)
Another trick you should learn for WhatsApp is sending secret messages. Of course, there are no standard features in Messenger that allow you to do this, but there are some online applications that can help you.
DataYou can start Wassame. It is software that is free of charge, but also does not need to be installed on the mobile phone. However, this is not without limits. The server is often busy (and by that I mean it’s not working), I’m sure they will improve its functionality in the future.
Another application that makes it possible to send anonymous messages is Secure Text Keyboard, which is available for iPhone and Android.
When you use this application, the messages and conversations you have are only accessible to the person you are talking to. Messages and chats protected by this application exchange the actual text of the conversations for a given common dialogue. The same applies to the notifications you receive and the corresponding text examples.
I have a tutorial that will introduce you to Secure Text Keyboard and other applications like Kibo. Check if any secret messages have been sent via WhatsApp : Final guide.
If you want to send secret messages or make completely secret calls, WhatsApp may not be the best main application for that. If you are a ninja who loves a challenge, this is definitely the one who should test your strength. However, please be aware that the end-to-end encryption used by WhatsApp can cause problems when running secret messaging applications.
20. Archive your cats
Don’t forget that permanently deleting a message or an entire chat can be the safest and most reliable solution, but there are times when archiving the current chat can be sufficient.
Archiving prevents this cat from appearing in the list of active cats on WhatsApp. This conversation is essentially a cover-up.
It’s not a big problem, and I can show you how to do it with an iPhone and an Android device.
Android: On the chat screen, type the conversation you want to archive and hold it. Select the Archive icon at the top of the window.
iPhone: In the chat, walk with your finger over the conversation you want to archive, starting at the right side and then to the left. Tap the Archive option when it appears.
If you need additional information, such as B. how to read or remove archived calls from this sublist, read the complete guide to using archived calls in WhatsApp.
Remember, you can easily restore archived chats. So if you’re trying to hide a highly compromised conversation, you’d better delete it. Ninjas prevent problems, they don’t solve them.
21. Voice call
This feature can be very useful on WhatsApp, especially when traveling abroad. Calls to WhatsApp are completely free as long as you are connected to a WiFi network. You can stay in a hotel or restaurant with Internet access and connect with friends and family for free, even if they are on the other side of the world.
It’s very easy to call one of the contacts in your WhatsApp list. Open the chat with the recipient of the call and press the Phone button at the top.
Would you like to know more? I recommend that you read my guide to making voice calls with WhatsApp.
It’s great to use WhatsApp voice calls to stay in touch with distant friends and family. Don’t forget – they can consume a lot of data to make calls, so I recommend WiFi. It’s an absolute necessity if you make a lot of phone calls.
22. Send yourself a WhatsApp message.
Not everyone seems to know you can text each other on WhatsApp. There is no special function for this, so it must be done wisely. After all, mindfulness is a quality of a real ninja.
If you are careless and often forget things, communicating with yourself can be a great way to remember something at the right time.
And how do you do that? You create a group with only one member (you). You can exchange text, images, videos, documents and archives between your smartphone and your PC (or vice versa).
That’s what you have to do:
- Open WhatsApp and tap Menu.
- Create a new group in this drop-down menu.
- Give your group a name and add a random friend.
- Press Create Group
- You have a panel of two members. Delete your random friend, and you are now the only one in the group who can access or view the downloaded messages.
There is still a lot to learn about this topic, so you should check out my How to post posts about yourself on WhatsApp guide.
I like to use this trick to move files from my PC to my phone, or as a constant reminder of things I still have to do.
23. Recording audio without holding down the button
Did you know that you can record a sound without having to hold the microphone?
When I discovered this, I was surprised too! (Don’t be angry.) Especially if the message is long, it’s just uncomfortable to hold the icon all the time. With this tip you can also do something else or even configure your phone and continue recording the message.
You have to follow the same 5 steps for iPhone and Android :
- Open a WhatsApp thread
- Press the microphone button
- Slide your finger on the screen.
- When you release this button, the recording of your message begins.
- If you drag to the same place, the recording stops and you can send it as usual.
If you want to learn more about this feature, you can read my tutorial on recording WhatsApp audio recordings without holding down the button.
When I learned this, it revolutionized my approach to voicemail. Now that I don’t have to hold down the button, I can send more complex audio files, not to mention much longer files.
24 Record WhatsApp calls
Which not everyone knows: Calls made and received via WhatsApp can be recorded.
First, let me tell you that there are no native features to record these calls directly into WhatsApp. To do this, you need to use third party applications that you can find in the respective application repositories for your device, or use spyware as if you were 007.
There may be several reasons why you want to record a call on WhatsApp. Maybe you want to prove your partner’s infidelity and use the phone call as evidence. If this is your motive, I recommend that you consult the guide in which I present three ways to find out if your partner is cheating on you through WhatsApp.
If you use an Android device, recording on WhatsApp is actually quite simple. If you have an iOS device, it gets a little tricky. I have a little jack I can use to record conversations.
I have put together a detailed manual for recording calls on your iOS and Android devices. Take a look at this.
Recording calls is more than possible, even with the complications caused by iPhone’s advanced privacy features. However, I must remind you that recording a call is an invasion of privacy and is punishable in almost all countries. If you want to do it legally, you have to tell the other party online that it is registered.
25. Delete WhatsApp message sent before delivery
Honestly, I would attribute this trick to a WhatsApp hack that could save your life at some point. If you send a message and a few seconds later you realize it was a mistake, you’ve already messed up and all you can do is wait for the consequences. I once accidentally texted my girlfriend’s mother instead of my girlfriend’s mother to tell her she couldn’t wait to see her. Fortunately she reacted well and laughed, but it could have been quite devastating.
Fortunately, if you sent a message to WhatsApp and can immediately assume it was an error, you have a small window to catch up.
You can delete the message, either for yourself or for the sender, but this must be done within seven minutes after sending. How do you do that?
- Open the subject and select the message you want to delete.
- A long press on this message displays a small menu.
- Select Delete and then the shopping cart icon
- Select Delete for all to remove the possibility for other people in the chat to see it.
You can learn more about this impressive WhatsApp savior in my How to Delete a WhatsApp message sent before it is delivered. This gives you all the information you need to delete a trusted text message within seven minutes of it being sent.
This trick is not without limits. If the recipient sees the message, it does not need to be deleted. If you have to face this hard truth, accept defeat with honor, as ninjas are used to do.
26. Sending WhatsApp messages without Internet
This may sound crazy, but did you know that you can send messages via WhatsApp without having to go over the Internet? There is a way. I invented this trick to send messages without appearing online.
You can think about how this might be useful. A jealous partner couldn’t come after you and say I saw you on the line. – Who were you talking to? It may be that your boss doesn’t realise that you communicate informally during working hours.
So let’s stop talking and see how you can do it:
- Start by activating Airplane mode, which disconnects all connections.
- Open WhatsApp
- Write a message to the selected recipient and click Send.
- Close WhatsApp completely
- Deactivating the flight mode
Messages are not displayed as they were sent, but once you leave the application and turn off flight mode, they can be sent to their recipients without you being online.
The best thing is that it really works! Clever, huh? To learn more about this process, read WhatsApp without the Internet: How to send messages.
If you want to avoid being seen online for any reason, this is a great trick to learn. If you are looking for other ways to remain anonymous on WhatsApp, stay here. Many of these ninja techniques are listed in the next section.
27. Write in bold, italic and crossed out on the WhatsAppform.
Are you tired of always using the same layout? There are too many times when you just have to OBSERVATE the things you want to say, don’t you?
You may already know that, but there’s no harm in repeating it. It is possible to change the text formatting in WhatsApp so that you can write bold, italic, and strikethrough.
It’s very simple: just insert the symbol at the beginning and end of the sentence you want to change.
I should be more specific – you should put an asterisk in front of bold, an underscore for italic and a squiggle for strikethrough. It could look like something like *IamaNinja*, _IamaNinja_ or ~IamaNinja~.
If you want to know more, check out my article on text formatting in WhatsApp : To add and mark in bold and italics.
This is of course a nice way to counteract your contributions. But after I’d done it a few times, I stopped completely because it wasn’t as necessary as I thought. Anyway, you’re gonna love it!
28. Send the same message to multiple contacts
Every time you make a date with friends, you create a group and send a mass message that nobody notices, right? Looks like the temp job is for you.
A transmission can send the same message to multiple recipients without anyone knowing. You can get all the answers you need individually without having to wait for a shy or shy answer in a group discussion.
To use this function, you need to go to your settings on the main chat screen. You can then select New Dispatch. Just select the recipients and enter the message you want to send to each of them.
One thing I hate when I’m placed in groups I don’t want to be part of and my phone explodes with a thousand messages and answers. I don’t even know most of these people. Broadcasting is the solution and your contacts will thank you for it.
If you ask me, the tips for increasing your security and privacy on WhatsApp are among my favourites. I spend most of my time with them because I’m a little obsessed with privacy. I hate it when someone knows what I’m doing, where I am, who I’m with and more. I encourage everyone to study this content and use it to prevent spying on your phone.
29. Send a message via WhatsApp without saving the number in your Contacts list.
There is no denying that keeping track of every number in your contact list to send a single message on WhatsApp services causes anxiety and boredom.
You’re lucky to know there’s a way around this painful process.
You can also write people on WhatsApp that you have not yet added to your contact list. I can show you this trick so you can use it when you need it.
To perform this trick, you need to follow a few simple steps. Including:
- Open your phone’s browser, and tap the URL bar at the top of the screen.
- Then enter https://wa.me/, followed by the country code and telephone number of the person you wish to contact with your personal message. (e.g. https://wa.me/1220000000 – this will contact the number 220-000-0000 with the prefix 1).
- On this page you must then click on the REMOVE MESSAGE button, which will appear after entering the text. Select this option to accept the WhatsApp application on your phone. Your device will then generate this chat for you with the number of your choice without you having to record the message.
That’s it! You have done everything necessary to send and deliver this message to the intended recipients.
I have written a detailed guide on how to send WhatsApp messages without saving a number on your Android, iPhone or PC. Here you will find even more useful information on this subject.
Please note that you can send these messages to the number of your choice via WhatsApp without first storing the number on your mobile device, but they can use their trick to detect if you have stored their number for your contacts.
30. Hidden Message Preview
I don’t know about you, but I don’t need anyone to read my texts or know who’s sending me messages. That’s why I disabled the preview of messages on my smartphone.
If you go to dinner with friends and leave your phone on the table, it’s clear when you get a report. All attention is immediately drawn to your screen. Disabling previews prevents others from seeing your messages and knowing who is sending them.
If you really want to ensure maximum privacy and prevent everyone from reading the last message in the preview window on the screen (even if the phone is locked), you can follow the instructions below. Open WhatsApp > Settings > Notifications > Disable Preview.
Whether you use an iPhone, an Android device or a computer, the process is the same. I have also developed a more detailed guide to hiding the WhatsApp message view.
This is a well-known trick that is very often used to protect your privacy. This is one of the many pieces of the puzzle that form the complete protection of your WhatsApp account. Continue learning more tips to complete your ninja transformation.
31. Chat on WhatsApp not yet visible
One of the most important attributes of a ninja is the silent movement, so this is a valuable lesson.
How many times have you wished you were a ghost on WhatsApp? Maybe you don’t need a specific person to know when you’re online, when you last logged in or if you’ve read their messages.
I’ve come up with an effective way to make you look like a ghost on WhatsApp: the slimming method. It has six levels:
- Using the flight mode
- Locking the contacts
- Stop time stamp
- Deselect icons for playback
- Hide your status
- Hide your profile picture
I won’t go into too much detail, because that would make this already long guide unbearably long. Instead, check out my slimming blog: Stay invisible on WhatsApp during the call.
I’m actually very proud of it. This has allowed many people to communicate on WhatsApp without revealing that they are online. Try and let me know what you think.
32. Sending messages without appearing online
Ninjas can crawl through the shadows without being seen. Ninja WhatsApp should also have the same discretion and send messages without appearing online.
Imagine all the ways you can send a message without appearing online. Snoopy husbands can’t bother you because they’ve seen you online but never sent you a message. Your boss won’t know you’re chatting on WhatsApp during working hours.
You may think it’s impossible, but, surprisingly, I have three different ways to do it:
- Appearance in autonomous mode with flight mode
- Direct response via the notification banner
- Invisible Android application
The first two methods are real tricks that manipulate errors in the WhatsApp system. Invisible, on the other hand, is an application for Android phones that allows you to browse WhatsApp and other applications such as Instagram, Messenger and Telegram privately.
For more information, see my guide to the 3 ways to send WhatsApp messages without appearing online.
Sending messages to WhatsApp without appearing online is one of the secrets of the application that you don’t want to share with anyone. I advise you never to tell anyone, otherwise it will be of no use to you for a long time.
33. Check if a contact is online
It was Sun Tzu who said in The Art of War:
If you know your opponent’s movements, you can tilt the balance to your side.
In today’s world, it’s just as important to know when your contact is online to make sure the message you want to send is read.
I hate to send messages and the recipient doesn’t read them or for some reason forgets to reply to me.
I have collected three methods that can help you here, one exclusive for Android, one for iPhone, and finally a method that works on each of them.
- OnlineNotify (Jailbroken iPhone) [70% reliability].
- WhatsApp Tracker (Android) [30% reliability].
- mSpy WhatsApp Monitoring (i.e.) [100% reliable].
Read all about it in my How to Know When Certain Contacts Appear in WhatsApp guide.
Knowing when a contact is addressing the network ensures that your messages are read and answered. If you can guarantee a contact person that they will see you online, they will see you and be more likely to respond. Apologies like the fact that I couldn’t get into WhatsApp don’t exist – you know they do.
34. Incorrect background noise
The next thing I’m gonna talk about is serious ninja business. If you want me to be proud of you, do it.
Imagine you’re not supposed to be at home and your partner asks you why you’re not at home. What are you doing? If you are a seasoned WhatsApp ninja, you can send a voicemail message with background music that is the perfect alibi. Suppose you stay at the office to talk to your boss and you need a clip of people talking in the background. It’s perfect.
To add false background noise to your WhatsApp messages, simply follow the steps below:
- Use your computer or someone else’s smartphone to play the video with the sound you want to mimic. You can use this background sound generator and also just select the background sound.
- Adjust the volume of the speaker to achieve the desired level of background noise. They can’t be too low or too high.
- Record a voicemail message on your smartphone when you are near the speakers of your computer.
In my How to add fake background sounds in WhatsApp voicemail tutorial, I have collected a large selection of background sounds to choose from.
I’d be careful here, it can be addictive to see what scenarios you can make with the background noise you have.
35. Fake cats
Now that you have collected a voice message with fake background sounds, the next step to prove your alibi is to take a screenshot of the fake call.
To return to the above example, you can send your partner a screenshot of a fake conversation you had with your boss and ask him to stay for the meeting.
You should know that WhatsApp does not really have many ways to legitimize false messages. Instead, you can use one of the many great applications such as FakeWhats.
FakeWhats is a fantastic application and is rated quite well. You can create a call that appears to come directly from WhatsApp, and you can change settings such as B. Send status when someone is online, type, stop, change the time of your chat messages, choose the background you use on WhatsApp, and so on. It’s easy to use.
I can tell you a lot more about the use of these and other applications in my more detailed description, which can be found in my How to Create Fake Cats for WhatsApp guide.
Believe me, these fake cats fool everyone because they look completely authentic. You can even choose your phone provider, battery level, background, etc. Maybe after that, you’re not even a ninja, but a criminal if you run this scam.
36. WhatsApp Tasks: What do they mean? A Complete manual
Understanding the WhatsApp tick-tock is an important step if you want to become a famous ninja of this world famous messaging application.
There are three tick marks that are often used, namely
– A single gray check mark indicates that the message has been delivered to the server.
✓✓ – two grey check marks indicate that the message has been sent to the recipient’s device.
✓✓ – Two blue ticks may indicate that the recipient has read the sent message.
If you need more information, feel free to check out my guide – WhatsApp Ticks : What do they mean? A complete guide.
Read this article to learn more about tapping, as well as a tip to find out if someone has read your message, even if the reading vouchers are disabled.
37. Backup of your WhatsApp account
A good mantra for a ninja is to avoid lightning attacks from your opponent by staying alert. You can install a similar firewall to protect the privacy of your WhatsApp account.
It is very important to know how to protect your WhatsApp account. For example, if your mobile phone is stolen, chances are that messages or photos you’ve shared with your friends will be noticed.
I have developed an 8-step method to protect your WhatsApp profile. That’s what you have to do:
- Password Lock WhatsApp
- Prevent WhatsApp from keeping the media in the gallery
- Hide the information from the latest overview
- Prevent access to your profile picture
- Stay away from the scam.
- Turn off WhatsApp if your phone is lost or stolen.
- Pay attention to communication
- Logout from WhatsApp Web
I have described all of these steps in a detailed WhatsApp Privacy Guide: How to protect your account.
If you follow all these steps carefully and follow the advice in my guide, you can achieve a high level of security for your account. You could practically become a thief and a spy.
38. Enabling/disabling two-step verification on WhatsApp
You should be aware that the two-step verification is an additional protection measure for your WhatsApp account for those who wish to spy on your account.
When this feature is enabled, anyone who wants to log in to your WhatsApp account on your new device must enter the six-digit PIN code you created.
That’s a bit clever, isn’t it? It is very easy to activate.
- Open WhatsApp
- Settings > Account > Two-step authentication > Enable
- Choose a six-digit PIN code and add a recovery email address
To further improve your privacy when using WhatsApp, please read my guide on enabling two-step authentication with WhatsApp.
I advise everyone to activate the two-step check. This is a free additional layer of security for your WhatsApp account.
39. Lock WhatsApp with password
Another way to increase the security of your WhatsApp account is to rely on external applications designed solely to prevent unauthorized access to WhatsApp.
This software allows the user to create an installation code, without which you cannot connect to this or any other application. If you have a controversial conversation with someone and you want to keep it private, you can safely leave your phone at home. If your partner cannot find the unlock code, he will not have access to WhatsApp.
The best applications I’ve seen so far to do this:
- Norton App Lock
- Avast Mobile Security
I will discuss these two options and an additional method if you look at my guide: How to lock your WhatsApp with a password on Android and iPhone.
This tip maximises the level of confidentiality of the application. If you don’t know the code you create, you won’t have access to the application – it’s that simple.
40. Permanently uninstalling WhatsApp Media
Many people do not realize that all media (photos, video and audio) sent and received through WhatsApp are stored both on their servers and on your device.
Again, I’m explaining a trick that anyone can use to instantly and permanently delete all files stored on their phone from their WhatsApp account.
This will help you to completely erase all media stored on your phone by following two important steps: Forbid WhatsApp to record new content and remove media from WhatsApp and phone memory.
You really need to follow all the steps I have outlined in the detailed guide on how to permanently remove all media (photos, videos, audio) from WhatsApp.
Deleting all media stored on your phone and account is absolutely necessary if you have something to hide. Everyone has skeletons in the closet that they have to hide from prying eyes, and that is precious to all of us.
41. Hide WhatsApp profile picture of a specific contact
This is a WhatsApp trick that raises real privacy issues. Why should everyone be able to see your profile picture?
You may not even know that WhatsApp is set by default to show someone with your number your profile picture.
Although this does not concern you personally, know that there are funders who use your photo to create a profile on a dating site or a sexual partner. I personally took photos of WhatsApp and discovered it was a fake Badoo profile (dating application).
You can avoid all this inconvenience by going to Settings > Account > Privacy and profile picture. You can choose who sees them by selecting All, My Contacts or None.
I suggest that everyone change this feature in his or her account. It costs you nothing and prevents your personal photographs from falling into the hands of criminals.
42. Environmental espionageApp
Ninjas have been used throughout history as spies, murderers and specially trained fighters. The life of ninjas may seem old-fashioned today, but the principles and methods of their clandestine and secret presence are still relevant to anyone looking for a little spying and cheating in their diet.
There are several methods to spy on WhatsApp.
It’s a trick you have to keep to yourself. This is the Holy Grail of all the information I’ve given you. If you want to become a WhatsApp ninja, privacy should be your specialty.
If you want to know how to spy on your WhatsApp contacts and read their conversations, there are three ways to find this information.
- WhatsApp hacking with Mac spoofing technology
- Using WhatsApp web service to become James Bond
- Spying on someone’s cell phone with mSpy.
The first method is simply not for everyone, because it requires unmistakable computer skills. The second uses WhatsApp Web. It’s simple, but not always effective, and you can expose yourself to discovery. The third option is by far the best. With mSpy, you can implement an invisible application on the target’s phone and read all their calls, view their photos and videos, and much more.
If you’d like to learn more about these methods, you can read my guide on how to spy on WhatsApp messages from your PC or phone.
I advise you to do it only when you really need it. Mobile phone espionage is illegal in many countries, so trade wisely and intelligently.
Once you’ve mastered the content I’ve given you, your transition to the ninja is now complete. You’ve seen 42 tips and tricks from WhatsApp to help you get the most out of the chat and the application itself.
