How to Filter Who Sees Your WhatsApp Profile Picture: Everything You Need to Know.

 WhatsApp has got a huge user community all over the world. The application helps to send text, images, videos, audios etc. easily with anyone. As the number of users increased, the application became much more serious with the user’s privacy policies too. Anyone can send you a WhatsApp message if they have your number. If you are not vigilant, they could even get some of your personal information as well.

 For example, if your profile picture is not hidden, then anyone with a WhatsApp can get a glance of your WhatsApp DP. Thus, it will be a concern to your privacy.

 Imagine that you got a message from an unknown number mentioning your DP. It could be so irritating. Most of the time girls face this problem and due to this the majority tends to keep some other pictures as their DP.

No need to get worried or upset with this. The application itself has a provision to hide your personal information from unknown contacts. Previously there was a download option included in the WhatsApp DP and people were able to download display pictures of others. Later this download feature was taken off by WhatsApp.

 WhatsApp has a provision to hide your profile picture from unknown contacts or even from everyone. Through this article you can learn how this is done.

Steps to hide your WhatsApp DP.

 This is a simple process and anyone can do this within a short span of time.

  1. Open WhatsApp.
  2. Tap on the three dots on the top right corner of the home screen.
  3. From the menu, select ‘Settings’
  4. Tap on the ‘account’ option.
  5. Select ‘Privacy’
  6. Choose the ‘Profile Photo’ option.
  7. Now you can see three options. ‘Everyone’, ‘My Contact’ and ‘Nobody’
  8. By default, it will be selected as Everyone

      Everyone :  which means that everyone can see your DP.

      My Contacts:  which means your DP will be visible only to those on your contact list.

      Nobody : which means your DP won’t be visible to anyone.

Just like this you can hide your DP from unknown contacts. Thinking of the privacy concerns, it will be better to turn off your DP visibility to unknown contacts.

 Even Though WhatsApp doesn’t allow others to download your DP, they can still take screenshots of your DP. Hope that this problem will be addressed in future updates.
