How to hide your last seen online status in Telegram
Sometimes you need to hide your online status from everyone or from a specific user. To hide your last seen status do this:
- Open the ‘Privacy and Security’ settings and select ‘Last Seen & Online’ tab;
- Here you may choose who can see your ‘last seen’ time;
- If you select only your contact you can add exceptions and choose specific users who won’t be able to see your online status.
Pay attention, Bro! You cannot see Last Seen or online statuses for users with whom you don’t share yours. You will see only approximate times (recently, within a week and so on). Therefore, if you hide your last seen status from everyone you won’t be able to see anyone’s online status.
