How to Keep Your Name Invisible on WhatsApp


GBWhatsApp introduces new features and tricks every now and then which almost leaves us surprised. WhatsApp is all about the privacy and security that one wants. We get connected to many people and can share our messages, documents, and media, and we can send and receive money also.


We also want to maintain our privacy like to keep our name confidential or don’t want to show our name to unknown people and want to keep our name hidden or invisible so WhatsApp has bought a new trick to keep your name invisible.

With the meta version, GBWhatsApp will not allow you to hide your name or make it invisible but now with this trick. Like its other features including Do not disturb mode or changing the color of the WhatsApp icon, it cannot be done directly.

You need to make changes through settings. If someone adds you to a chatting group or stalks your profile after saving your name in their list they will not be able to see your name, just a blank space will be shown. This is the best trick ever one can use to hide their name and with this, their privacy is also maintained.



Note: Reset GBWhatsApp settings if it is not as per the requirements.
