How to Hide Your WhatsApp Profile Picture

By default, anyone can see your WhatsApp profile picture.

Let’s see the steps to show your profile picture to your WhatsApp contacts only or hide it for everyone on WhatsApp.

Here are the essential things to note before proceeding with the steps:

  • The WhatsApp app doesn’t provide the option to hide your profile picture from specific contacts. However, you can complete this task by following these steps: Choose My Contacts from these steps, and remove the contact from whom you want to hide your display picture (DP) from your device.
  • You can’t do the above task on WhatsApp Web.

I use Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), Windows 11 PC, and iPhone X. Let’s begin with the iPhone.
