    Whatsapp 'last seen' timestamp

    Hi everyone, can anyone tell me under what circumstances is there no 'last seen' timestamp on a contact's whatsapp profile?

    This person has not blocked me as they don't have my number. I'm aware they could have changed privacy settings to not show a timestamp, but the question I need help with is, is there any other possible reason the timestamp would suddenly disappear?

    This person has an iphone if it makes any difference!

    Thank you!

    They've just changed privacy settings that's all.

    What he said ^ . I think if you turn off your time stamp being viewed then in return you can't see anyone else's time stamp regardless of their setting.

    My stamp can be viewed so it's not that reason. What about if they've turned their data/wifi off??
    Or turned their phone off??

    would either of these two scenarios make the timestamp disappear does anyone know?

    (great guy has given me his number, but just not quite sure why he seems to be on whatsapp at all hours and after messaging thru an app earlier this eve, when I later checked his whatsapp (he does not have my number!) there was suddenly no timestamp!) Hope I'm not being paranoid, but I'm thinking he might be busy chatting up other people now

    How do you know they can view your timestamp? If someone hides their 'last seen' in privacy settings it means they also cannot see other people's 'last seen'; though they can still see if someone is 'online' (has the app open) or 'typing'

    Sometimes that happens with me that the timestamp just disappears and I have been told that mine does it from time to time too and I don't change any of my privacy settings. But it seems to come back.

    I would also say trust your instincts. But good luck!

    he doesn't have my number so I won't even appear on his whatsapp contacts anyway

    actually you're right there - as they don't even have my number I won't even appear in their whatsapp contacts...

    I really hope you're right and I'm just over thinking...perhaps I'm feeling a bit fragile too!

    Hi. I work for o2 and do iPhone launches. The folks here are right. If he turned timestamp off you will only see when he is online but never when he was 'last seen'. Also just because he is on it all the time doesn't mean he actually is - he forgot to close the app that's all it could also be. I do it when I've replied to a message and locked my phone. It still shows I'm online as the app is actively open.

    Locked as in press lock key. Ps privacy settings is the only reason behind timestamps.

    You can also set the last seen to "my contacts"
    So it could also be the fact that your not in his contacts list.

    They've changed privacy settings. It's as simple as that.

    Did they realllllllly change their privacy settings?
    Or could it actually be something much more mysterious and intriguing?

    I smell a scandal....

    (also they might be using the beta version of whatsapp that sometimes is a tiny bit different)

    But no, probably scandalous behaviour of some kind.

    ooh the mystery deepens...timestamp is back with a last seen at 9.40... oO

    idk I have a friend in the usa sometimes his shows sometimes it doesn't. The rest will show all the time though.

    They have changed their setting to not show the last seen, this also means they can't see anyone elses last seen either.

    The words 'bunny' and 'boiler' spring to mind, here.

    Trust female intuition, it's never wrong. And talking at all hours doesn't necessarily mean he's talking to other women, you'd need something more concrete than that - he could have friends, you know

    I was thinking the same lol

    Smartwatch that will display readable messages appear as unread with WhatsApp I noticed. Anyway. Snap chat is the best for messaging on the quiet I thought.
