WhatsApp has added new privacy options that let users choose who can see and who can’t see their profile images. Users can determine who can access their ‘last seen’ status, including the ‘About’ area, as part of the privacy restrictions.

Users could previously only restrict certain settings for Everyone, My Contacts, or Nobody. WhatsApp users can now choose to block settings using a new option called “My Contacts Except,” according to the latest privacy upgrades.

Except for the people you omit, your contacts will be able to see your last seen, profile photo, or status.
