The problem is that whenever you check someone's WhatsApp 'Status', the user gets to know about it. This can often lead to awkward moments. However, there is a WhatsApp trick that can save you from a lot of embarrassment.
There are tricks that let you read WhatsApp messages without letting the receiver know. In fact, you can even send a message without typing and of course, you can check WhatsApp status of users without letting them know.
This trick can be used through 'Read receipt' feature of the messenger. These receipts are the tick marks that appear next to each message sent by you. If the 'Read receipt' feature is disabled, you will only see a double tick next to the message which means your message was sent but not read. A single tick means that the message was not delivered.
