When you are chatting on WhatsApp you may have noticed that in some chats the double blue check appears and in others it does not. That appears after the person has seen your message, but…why don’t you see it sometimes? Well let’s see…
Why doesn’t the double blue ckeck appear to you?
This usually appears after the person you are talking to has seen your messagebut if you have already seen it and it does not appear, it can be due to two options.
The person you’re talking to has read receipts turned off
The first option is that WhatsApp allows all its users disable read receipt (double blue check) in the settings. If a person has that option turned off, he won’t be able to see when someone else reads her messages, but her contacts won’t see when she reads them either.
So if you have read receipt turned on, but the person you’re chatting with doesn’t, you will not see the double blue check after you read the message. However, the same will happen to her.
You have deactivated the read confirmation and you had not noticed it
The second option is that you you turned off the read receipt setting by mistake. If that has happened to you, the same situation applies as in the previous point: you will not be able to see the blue check of others nor will others be able to see yours.
How to activate/deactivate the double blue check (read confirmation) in WhatsApp?
To activate or deactivate this configuration you must follow the following steps:
- Enter to WhatsApp.
- go to 3 points verticals on the right.
- Click on “Settings”.
- Go to the “Bill”.
- Choose “Privacy”.
- There, you must check the option “read confirmation” if you want to have the double check enabled, or uncheck it if you want to have the option disabled.
Although if you do not want to disable the read confirmation, but you also do not want the double check to skip when you see a message, you can achieve that by viewing the messages without entering WhatsApp.
How can you see the double blue check in WhatsApp groups?
Even when you or someone else has the read confirmation option disabled, in WhatsApp groups it is possible see if any member has seen the messages what did you send.
After everyone in the group has seen the message, the blue double check will jump. However, there is another way to check if your message has been seen. doyou know how to check? Follow the steps below to do so:
