Telegram has grown over the years to become a very popular social messaging app. Apart from being more secure, it offers exciting features that are missing from WhatsApp and other apps, such as stickers, GIFs, channels, bots, and much more.
With telegram, you can send and receive messages, photos, videos, and files, as well as place a voice call. Telegram also has a read receipts feature which shows a double tick next to messages which have been read by the other person. Unfortunately, you cannot disable read receipts in Telegram, but there is a way to hide your last seen status so that no one knows when you ignore their messages.
Here’s how to disable the last seen timestamp in Telegram on iPhone.
How to Disable Last Seen in Telegram for iPhone
Step 1: Open Telegram on iPhone.
Step 2: Tap on the Settings tab.
Step 3: Go to Privacy and Security.
Step 4: Tap on Last Seen.
Step 5: Here you can select who can view your last seen timestamp. To hide it from everyone, select the ‘Nobody’ option. Moreover, you can selectively choose the contacts from whom you want to hide your last seen timestamp.
Once you disable this feature, none of your contacts can view your last seen timestamp. Instead, the timestamp will be replaced with another text that says ‘Last seen recently’. It’s important to note that by disabling this feature, you won’t be able to view the last seen timestamp of anyone.
