Do you want to avoid WhatsApp calls or messages from reaching you? Then you must know the trick that will help you to do it without having to uninstall the app.
Thousands of WhatsApp users have been surprised by a simple trick that has gone viral on social networks. Although it is the favorite app on iOS and Android for millions of users around the world who prefer to use it to receive thousands of messages a day or calls from their friends or family, this situation can be exhausting for those who want to have a moment of tranquility . Fortunately, we can resort to a secret method that allows us to disable the application without having to remove the internet from the mobile. How can we do it? Here we explain it to you.
Step by step to disable WhatsApp
According to the web portal https://larepublica.pe/, thanks to this simple method we can continue using Wi-Fi or mobile data without any problem, but we will not receive any WhatsApp messages. In addition, to those people who wrote to us it will appear that we have not received it.
We are not going to have to install any third-party application on our mobile or anything like that, since it is a function that we can apply with the help of the Android operating system. We just have to follow these steps:
- Go to phone settings
- Select the option that says 'Applications'
- Find the WhatsApp application and select it
- Now a new window will open with details of the application: you must press the button that says 'Stop' or 'Force stop'
- A notice will appear indicating that WhatsApp will stop working if you activate the force stop option, so you have to confirm the action.
- Then, click on 'Accept' and voila, you will stop receiving messages.
It is true that many people choose to disconnect from Wi-Fi or deactivate mobile data and thus prevent WhatsApp messages from reaching them, however this means that we cannot browse the Internet from the phone, check email, open social networks or use an app that requires a connection.
Another alternative widely used by WhatsApp users is to mute the individual and group chats that we use the most. However, this task can be tedious and useless since it will not prevent notifications from reappearing when someone we silenced writes to us again. Fortunately, there is another little-known way to disconnect from the application without having to resort to the aforementioned measures.
