You can see the exact time your friend read your message
And you thought you only can find out whether your message was read by your friend? The information you can get from the blue ticks are the time you sent the message, the time your message was received by your friend and the time your friend reads the message.

The functions work for group chats too
Yes, the exact same things happen in group chats. So, don’t think of purposely ignoring your group chats from now on. There are eyes watching.

You can turn it off
If you don’t know yet, this will save your life. If you just have the bad habit of reading and not replying, one way to make sure people don’t find out is to switch off the blue tick function. Go to your settings, then accounts and click on privacy to disable it.

Read your messages from the notification bar
This is another small trick to avoid the blue tick situation. When your notifications pop up, simply glance at your messages there before deciding whether you want to go into the chat and reply. If it’s something you don’t want to reply to, make sure you won’t ever click on it.

Do switch off your last seen as well
Yeah, if your blue tick is gone but your last seen is there, it will still be suspicious when people find out you’re online but just not replying them. Not such a great idea, right?
