WhatsApp is a messaging application that lets you stay connected with your friends and family. This application allows the users to know when a recipient has read their message by showing the “Double Blue Tick.”

The feature is great for the sender, but it doesn’t go well with the receivers. As we all know that when someone sends you any message in WhatsApp, the sender also receives a return notification or delivery report of the message.

Many users don’t want to share that they saw or read the message they received on WhatsApp. So, if you also want to read WhatsApp messages without the sender knowing, you are reading the right article.

Steps To Read Any WhatsApp Message Without The Sender Knowing

In this article, we are going some of the best methods to read messages without opening the WhatsApp application. The methods will be very easy, so let’s check out.

1. Read the Message from the Notification drawer

Well, if you have been using WhatsApp for a while, you might have already utilized this method. If you have a WhatsApp notification enabled, you can read the messages from the notification drawer without opening the app.

In this way, the sender won’t be able to know that you have read the message. However, the notification panel only shows a few characters of WhatsApp’s message. If the text is too long, this method might not help.

2. Using Flight Mode

To remain hidden, next time when you will receive any message, all you need to do first is to put your smartphone into “Flight Mode” or “Airplane Mode” before opening or reading the message on WhatsApp.

After Activating the “Flight Mode”, just open your latest unread message in your WhatsApp and read them as many times as you want to read without knowing the sender.

3. Disable the Read Receipts

Well, WhatsApp allows you to disable/enable the read receipts. Disabling read receipts seems to be the most authentic and easy way to hide your read status. However, the disadvantage of disabling read receipts is that you will also not know if someone has read your messages.

To disable Read receipts, open WhatsApp and head to the Settings > Account > Privacy. Under the Privacy, uncheck the read receipts option.

So, these are the two best methods to read WhatsApp messages without the sender knowing. I hope this article helped you! Please share it with your friends also. If you have any doubts about this, let us know in the comment box below.
