How to Turn Off or Disable WhatsApp Status Feature? With the new developed WhatsApp Status highlight, the world’s greatest texting administration is advancing from “content just” statuses to incorporate pictures and recordings. This component takes off to all clients on February 24, corresponding with WhatsApp’s eighth birthday celebration.

WhatsApp Status is very like contender Snapchat’s prevalent Stories highlight and the vaporous Statuses will be obvious to contacts for 24 hours to contacts contingent upon the client’s security settings. The new element gives clients a chance to share photographs, enlivened GIFs or recordings with illustrations, pictures or inscriptions overlaid. As indicated by WhatsApp, the Statuses will be end-to-end scrambled like other correspondence on the informing administration.

However, many people isn’t liking WhatsApp’s Status feature and they want to turn it off. But, there is not any inbuilt feature in the app to turn off or disable Status feature. My today’s article is on same topic.

Method #1: Using Preferences Manager [Root Required]

Preferences Manager is an Open Source application that allows you to seamlessly edit application’s preferences.

Android provides several options for developers to save application data. The most frequent solution is the Shared Preferences framework. It’s a simple way to store private primitive data in key-value pairs. Unfortunately, this method is not very secure… It consists in a simple XML file stored in the private folder, specific to the app. But in the case of a rooted device, theses files can be read, edited and even deleted.

Preferences Manager allows you to edit these preferences in a simple and easy way. You can for instance increase your highscores, modify your progression, or just debug your application preferences.
