Most of you might already know how to turn the last seen timestamp off in Whatsapp, but Whatsapp makes you wait 24 hours every-time you want to switch back the last seen timestamp. In this tutorial I’m going to share a very simple trick that will help you turn on/off your last seen without waiting 24 hours.

Here’s how:

  1.  You’re gonna need to download iBackupBot on your MAC/PC.
  2. Connect your iPhone to your Mac/Pc.
  3. Open iBackupBot, wait till it reads your phone.
  4. Under the devices sections go to your mobile, then go to User Applications and click on Whatsapp
  5. Whatsapp will show on the right column with its files, navigate to Library, then Preferences
  6. right click on net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist and choose to edit it with built in editor
  7. Search for “<key>LastSeenDisabled</key>”


If you want to enable last seen, “<key>LastSeenDisabled</key>” should be followed by  “<false/>” , if you want to disable the last seen it should be followed by “<true/>” , each “key” should have one condition so make sure you replace the current condition with the new one.
