In this article, we will list out 3 ways by which you can avoid letting the other person know that you have read the message.
1. Aeroplane Mode:
Airplane mode cuts off all connected between Whatsapp and its server. How is that going to help us you may ask? If the app cannot contact its server, it cannot communicate with the server to say that the message has been opened. Once the message is read, make sure that the app is closed and even removed from the background before going back online. This is very important. Failure close the app will trigger the communication between the server and the app.
