    On WhatsApp, it is possible to hide your profile picture from some contacts. To do this, just follow a few simple steps. The topic of Internet privacy often emerges when it comes to social networks and messaging apps such as WhatsApp.


    When Zuckerberg's team released the Blue Ticks update, it created a bit of a stir. Fortunately (or unfortunately for some), from the WhatsApp settings menu, you can disable the blue check marks and manage other privacy-related options.



    On WhatsApp, there is a way to keep your profile picture hidden for certain contacts or to all your contacts, follow simply these simple steps that we are about to introduce to you in this tutorial.

    And it is in this same menu that you can hide your profile picture from some of your contacts.

    How to hide your WhatsApp profile photo from a particular contact

    If, on the other hand, you want to hide your profile picture only from some of your contacts (your mother, your ex, your colleagues), the procedure is a bit longer because WhatsApp does not allow it. However there is a solution:




    • Open WhatsApp.
    • Click on the three dots at the top right.
    • Select Settings> Accounts> Privacy.
    • Click Profile photo.
    • Select the My Contacts option.
    • Open your phone's address book.
    • Delete the contact you want to deny access to your profile photo (save the contact's phone number in a note to avoid losing it).

    Now you can be sure that this contact will no longer see your WhatsApp profile picture.
