WhatsApp is known to periodically release new features that help users keep their privacy in check easily. A new update for the instant messaging app now brings a new way to hide your profile picture, status updates and some other information from people.

The new update adds more granular control over who is able to see information that you may not want everyone to see. Generally, you can choose between showing your profile picture, last seen details and status updates to everyone, all your contacts or nobody at all. The new update adds a new “My contacts except…” option here.

With the new option, WhatsApp users can now set their Profile Picture, Last Seen and other contact details to show to all contacts except a few pre-selected ones who will not be able to see these elements despite being contacts.

With the new option, WhatsApp now has a total of four privacy control settings. These are as follows.
