My contacts except ...
In the privacy settings, WhatsApp offers 4 options to adjust somewhat the level of privacy shared by the application: "Seen at" which indicates the time of the last connection at the top of each conversation, "Profile picture "," News "and" Status ". The first three parameters propose to let 3 groups access this information: "Everyone", "My contacts" or "Nobody". The last one is however thinner since it offers three other possibilities: “My contacts”, “My contacts except…” and “Share only with…”. As you can see, here you can choose precisely the people with whom you want or do not want to share your status.
This slightly finer adjustment could partly affect the sharing of the last connection time. WABetaInfo has discovered in the WhatsApp code a new setting option in the “Seen to” menu: “My contacts except…”.

Note that those who decide to hide the last connection time from some of their contacts will no longer be able to see theirs in return. Give and take.
A feature coming soon?
For now, this function has been activated by WABetaInfo by modifying the code of the application and it is therefore not yet available, not even for users of the beta version. We will therefore have to wait a while to choose who can see the time of our last connection on WhatsApp, but we imagine that the function is close to its finalization if it appears here.WhatsApp: Facebook would have access to some private messages, even encrypted
