Hide the WhatsApp profile photo

Are you among those who often use WhatsApp but don't like to show your profile picture to all your contacts? It is strange, but it can happen, especially when we are a bit reserved and even if we use social media, we don't like to share some aspects of our private life to some people. It may happen that you have chosen a particular photo for the WhatsApp profile and we would not like it to appear to all our contacts. We would prefer to exclude someone for a reason that I am not here to explain at the moment. If you find yourself in this situation, maybe you don't know, but there is a way to hide the WhatsApp profile picture to all or only to some specific contacts. The procedure is really very simple and only takes a few seconds. All you need to do is follow the steps that I will show you in this guide.

Even in real life, not all friends are the same, so are social friends. There are always preferences, which of course we carry with us also in virtual life. For some, yes, others not. Even with WhatsApp we may prefer some to the detriment of others, in this case sharing our profile photo. Here are some solutions.

Procedure to hide the WhatsApp profile photo from a specific contact

If instead you want to hide your profile photo only to some "awkward" contacts in your address book, the operation is slightly different, as the WhatsApp app does not provide this type of option.

  1. open WhatsApp.
  2. go toSettings> Account> Privacy.
  3. click onProfile picture.
  4. select the item My contacts.
  5. open your phone's address book.
  6. delete the contact you want to deny access to your profile photo (make sure you save the phone number in a note first if you don't want to lose it).

This procedure is possible because, by selecting the "My contacts",only the people whose number you have saved in the phonebookthey will be able to see your profile picture. Now you can rest assured that your contact will no longer see your profile picture.

If you don't want to delete the contact from the address book to hide the profile photo, there is also a second method even easier to hide the photo from a WhatsApp contact. Follow these steps.

  1. open WhatsApp.
  2. go toSettings> Account> Privacy.
  3. click onProfile picture.
  4. select the item My contacts.hidden WhatsApp profile photo
  5. go to the phone book and change the contact in the phone book to which you don't want to show the picture. Add the prefix in front of the phone number # 31 # as if I wanted to make a private call.

This all. Now you know how to exclude WhatsApp profile images from all contacts or just inconvenient contacts.

With your favorite friends, you can now choose to play group video calls using WhatsApp. If you don't know how to do it, I suggest you read this guide.
