As we all know Whatsapp recently ticked us off with their new feature of notifying read reciepts with those annoying ‘blue ticks’. But as a jailbreaker we’re always ready to counter attack. So if you’re jailbroken, head over to Cydia and look for ‘whatsapp read receipts disabler’ tweak. Install the tweak and you’re done. Tested it on my iPhone 5, works flawlessly. Another cool feature in the tweak is that it still allows us to get the blue tick read receipts for the messages we have sent to others! It is that simple to disable Whatsapp read receipts on iPhone.
However, if you’re not jailbroken there is a workaround which is not as effective as the one above, but it should work in some cases. Whenever you receive a message on Whatsapp, don’t open the app! Pull down the notification center from the top and try to find the message there. You’ll be able to read the first five words of the message and the sender won’t get the blue ticks! And this how we disable whatsapp read receipts on iPhone
