The steps to disable the last seen status in Meta’s messaging app on iPhone are pretty much the same as Android.

Next, move to “Privacy -> Last Seen & Online” under the “Account” settings.

The “Last Seen & Online” setting and the option to hide them is only available in WhatsApp beta versions right now. You will only see the option to disable “Last Seen” on your device.

Step - 4 Hide Online Status on WhatsApp (Android)

On the same settings page as the “Last Seen” status, you will now see a new “Who can see when I’m online” option. You just need to select “Same as last seen” here.

You can also select the “My contacts except..” option if you wish the last seen time to be displayed to select people in your contacts list.
