5 Mistakes We All Make While Using WhatsApp

WhatsApp is probably one of the most used applications in the world, just a few weeks ago it exceeded the figure of two billion global users. There are many people in the world who use WhatsApp on a daily basis, and the vast majority continue to make very basic mistakes.

For this reason, today we bring you a compilation with a series of errors that many users continue to make on WhatsApp and that can be solved in just a few seconds with a few clicks.

Stop Making These Mistakes On WhatsApp

Yes, we are sure that you make any of these errors but don’t worry, we show you step by step how to fix it.

Do Not Clean Your contact List

All the contacts that we have added to our agenda will be able to see a large amount of our data on WhatsApp such as your photo, your states or if you have recently connected. This can jeopardize our privacy and is resolved very easily.

Why do you keep keeping the number of that colleague that you haven’t seen for years, or the one that you sold your old iPhone to by Wallapop? They can all see a lot about you and shouldn’t. You just have to go to the Contacts application on your iPhone or smartphone and delete all those contacts that you no longer need.

Watch Out For Your Profile Picture

A good idea to keep your privacy safe is not to change your profile picture much, we have already told you that any contact can see it. However, WhatsApp offers the possibility that only whoever you want can see your profile picture, follow these steps:

  • Enter WhatsApp and click on Settings.
  • Go to Account> Privacy> Profile photo.
  • Select who you want your photo to be able to see: Everyone, My Contacts or Nobody.

You Have Not Activated Two-Step Verification

Two-step verification is a tool that most apps and services that ask for identification already use. Thanks to it, it is much more difficult for someone to impersonate you since they will verify that it is you with a 6-digit PIN, or an email, and not just with the SMS they send you. To activate it:

  • Enter WhatsApp and click on Settings.
  • Now go to Account> Verification in two steps.
  • Press Activate.

Anyone Can Add You To A Group

Your phone is private and nobody should share it, however, if you are added to a group anyone can see it. Fortunately, now you can choose who can easily add you to groups and send you a request, you must follow these steps:

  • Again enter WhatsApp and press Settings> Account> Privacy.
  • Now enter Groups.
  • Select who can add you to a group, in case they can’t send you a request.

You Don’t Control Who Can See Your Statuses

in the same way that happens with the rest of the options that we have taught you, the normal thing is that you have your states open to anyone, and that is not good for your privacy. But nothing happens because you can choose who can see them very easily:

  • You know, go to WhatsApp and click on Settings> Account> Privacy.
  • Enter the Status
  • You can choose if all your contacts can see them, all but some or only the ones you want.

By following these tips your privacy will be more protected than ever on WhatsApp and that is something important, do not forget to correctly configure everything that we have told you.
