Disable Last Seen feature from WhatsApp

The popularity of WhatsApp as the No.1 messenger app mainly depends on its great features and one such feature is the “Last Seen”, which displays on the chat window of a contact indicating when was he/she available on WhatsApp or used WhatsApp. But there are times you don’t want others to know when you have last visited or if you have checked their messages or not. WhatsApp doesn’t have a built-in feature to “Hide/Disable Last Seen” time for its Android users whereas it does provide this option for iOS devices.
