WhatsApp: How to use Private Read to stay 'hidden' in Messenger | Social networks

Private Read is a free application for Android phones that lets you read WhatsApp messages without the sender finding out. The tool works through notifications, being able to view only new messages received, including photos, videos and voice messages. On the other hand, the app does not allow you to view old conversations or send replies. The ideal resource for those who need more time to reply to a message and want to prevent your friend from knowing that you have viewed the content.

In the following tutorial, check out how to use the Private Read app to view incoming messages on "hidden" WhatsApp. The procedure was performed on a Moto E5 Plus with Android 8.0 Oreo, but the tips also apply to other devices with the Google system. It is noteworthy that the application does not have iPhone back (iOS).
