There is no introduction needed, and everyone knows what Truecaller is and for what purpose it is being used. Even though it is a caller id application, we can use the same app as a messaging app like WhatsApp and Telegram. However, the number of users using Truecaller as a messaging app is less. One common question arises for those using it as the primary or secondary messaging application: how to hide the last seen option on Truecaller.
One great advantage of Truecaller, while you hide the last seen option, is that the other person won’t even know once you are online. The option hides your last seen and the current availability, which is a great feature that offers Privacy. However, if you type any message to users, at that moment, they can see the typing indication (not online status).

Disabling the last seen option of Truecaller is easy, but the main issue here is the labeling or the naming. The Last Seen option is listed in the settings as the Availability, which is meaningful, but it might not be very clear for regular users. So those looking to hide the last seen option were looking for an option in the settings with the same name as Last Seen. This made this tricky, and still, many people ask why the last seen option is not available and why I can disable the last seen option on Truecaller, etc.
While disabling or hiding the TrueCaller Last seen option, you need to know one more thing. Once you disable the Availability option on Truecaller, the other person won’t know when you are last online. But, at the same time, you also can’t find when the other person was last online.
It is a two-way option; Once you hide your last seen option on Truecaller, you also can’t see the last seen of other Truecaller users.
