Meta-owned whatsapp is working to roll out a shortcut for whatsapp status privacy update, currently we have to go to whatsapp settings, then accounts, privacy, status and then we are able to update the status privacy settings. Sometimes we forget to change the privacy settings before uploading a confidential status that should not be seen by some of your contacts. As they say prevention is better than cure, So keeping this thing in mind, whatsapp is working on a new whatsapp status privacy shortcut through which you will be able to easily change the whatsapp status privacy.

What is Whatsapp status:

Whatsapp status is a feature in meta owned whatsapp, through which you can share your memories, events and your everyday stories. Everyday, there are millions of stories uploaded on whatsapp by whatsapp users.
