Do you ever feel uncomfortable saving random phone numbers on your phone because you do not want them to see your WhatsApp profile picture? You are not the only one. It seems like WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will let you hide your profile picture from specific people. This new feature, called ‘Alternative Profile,’ will make your WhatsApp experience more secure and worry free.

Function of This Feature 

A new feature is being worked on that will let you hide your real profile from people you do not want to see. You can use a different picture and name for those people. This means they will not see your real information.

According to Webetainfo, this feature will be in your privacy settings. It allows you to set up a different picture and name that only certain people can see. For example, if only your friends can see your main picture, other people can see the alternate picture you choose. This feature will also be in your profile settings.

Right now, this feature is still being developed, and you cannot try it. But it could be really useful for keeping your information private. You need to wait and see when it becomes available.

How to Use This Alternative Feature

To use the Alternate Profile feature when it’s ready, just do these easy things:

  • Open WhatsApp
  • Go to settings > Privacy > Profile Photo
  • Pick ‘My Contacts’ to show your main profile picture only to people in your contacts
  • Make a new profile with a different picture and name
  • Adjust the settings so only the people you want can see your alternate profile
