Today we will tell you how to know when someone connects to WhatsApp, without being seen online!

This method will not only help you to check the online status, but also allow you to see the last seen contact, even if it is hidden by the contact.

Later in the article we also mentioned how for a particular contact you can know the online status without reading the message in WhatsApp.

Method 1- Know when someone is online on WhatsApp on Android

The best way to know if someone is online on WhatsApp is to use a third-party app that will do the job for you. The application we present today is called Dasta. It is very similar to the Sotla app, which was previously available on Google Playstore.

Currently, Dasta is one of the best WhatsApp online notifications on Android, which can alert you whether someone you know is online or not, even if you have turned off WhatsApp notifications. You don’t need to root your device because it works even on non-rooted devices.

Dasta app download

Enter Dasta in the Google Play Store and click download. Once you have downloaded it to your device, click “Open” to launch the application. You don’t need to register or login to start using it.

You will be asked to grant permissions when you open the app for the first time. Just click Allow for all questions.

To add contacts you want to keep track of, press the “+” icon located at the top right of the screen.

You will then be able to select the application you are using. Besides WhatsApp, you can also use Dasta with Telegram and, two other social messaging platforms similar to WhatsApp.

Once you have selected the option, you will be asked to enter the WhatsApp number of the person whose online status you want to track. Also be sure to enter the correct country code. Add a name and press OK to finalize it.

You will now be able to see the online status of the person you added to the list. If she logs in or out at any time, you will receive a push notification of her status.

If they are not online, you will see the last time they were active on the application. Please note that active means they have actually done something on the app. In my experience, just opening the app to check messages is not enough for Dasta to consider the other person online.

You can enable and disable tracking by toggling the switch to the right. In the meantime, by pressing the left button, you can either change the name or delete the number from your list.

Check their app usage, even if it’s hidden

Dasta also has a feature that lets you see how much time a specific person on your list has been online.

Simply tap on the contact from the main app dashboard, and you will be taken to a screen with an analog clock. This clock shows the last time this person was online. There’s the amount of time that person has been online, and there’s also the total time spent online.

For example, you can see that the last time the person was online was at 4:52 p.m. He was online between 4:52 p.m. and 4:54 p.m., spending a total of 43 seconds online.

Overall, Dasta is a great app to track a person’s online status on WhatsApp, as well as check their time online. It’s free to try, but after three days you have to pay a $9.99 or $12.99 subscription to continue using it.

Note: Dasta is not a TechUntold product. This is a third-party app available on the Google Play store.

However, if you don’t want to use a third-party app, here is another method to find out someone’s online status on WhatsApp.

Method 2- Steps to know the online status without reading the message in WhatsApp

Suppose someone sent you a message on WhatsApp but you want to reply to that message once the person is offline . If you try to open the chat, the person will know that you read the message but you don’t reply. So it is better to know the online status without reading the message even if blue ticks are enabled. Here’s how?

Note: This function is reserved for Android users, as it is not available for iPhone operating systems.

  • Open your WhatsApp application.
  • In the list of recent chats, tap on the photo of a person whose online status you want to know.
  • A pop-up window will appear on your device with chat, whatsapp call and info icon.
  • Press the info icon, it will display the user information.
  • In the user info screen, under the user name, you can see the last seen/online status.

And when you press the “Back” button, the chat screen with that person will not open, but it will take you to the WhatsApp recent chat list, where you came from.

The pop-up function helps you achieve this goal. Now that you know that person’s online status without reading their message, you can do whatever you want, either send a reply to that message or don’t.


By using the above applications and methods, you can therefore easily know when a person is online or offline on WhatsApp and even check or determine their last visit. If you have any problem, you can let us know through comments. THANKS.
