For many people, this application is their main work or study tool, maintaining constant, direct and immediate communication with their bosses, clients or classmates or work. In this and other types of cases, the application and the mobile phone never rest … and neither do you. This is where the question arises: What could I do to get some rest?
Disable WhatsApp Messenger temporarily
That is why now you will see a series of tools and functions of your mobile phone that will allow you to deactivate your WhatsApp temporarily, without having to delete your account, much less uninstall the application.
These are the ways to deactivate the application temporarily:
1. Force stop the WhatsApp app
One of the most effective ways to temporarily deactivate your WhatsApp is in the configuration panel of your device. Once you’re in that section, you must follow the following steps:
– Go to the “Settings -> Applications” section of your Smartphone.
– Select “WhatsApp”
– Press the option “Force stop”
In this simple way, WhatsApp will be temporarily disabled. Your phone will remain silent, at least, until you reopen the application.
Meanwhile, you can continue to use the rest of the applications on your device without annoying interruptions of messages that you just don’t want to see.
2. No more notifications
Another way that the application does not continue to interrupt other tasks or activities that you may be doing on your smartphone, is by disabling notifications. This alternative can also be found in the configuration panel of your mobile device.
– Enter the “Configuration (Settings)” panel
– Click on the “Notification option”.
– Disable WhatsApp notifications.
Thus, the application will remain active, but there won’t be notifications of messages arriving. An equally ingenious alternative to relax.
3. Another alternative would be to mute notifications from chats
To mute a specific chat, enter the chat, press the three dots in the upper right corner of your screen and select the option to mute notifications.
You can choose between 8 hours, 1 week or a year. But still you will continue to receive messages from this chat, your online status, blue check, status and other functions will continue to be visible to people you have added, only, you simply will not see when a message arrives from them.
And to rest!
If the reduction of your stress levels happens by temporarily deactivating this app, here you have some ways for it. Now, it’s up to you which method to use to spend time alone or in the company of your loved ones without annoying WhatsApp notifications on your Smartphone.
