WhatsApp has become a very popular communication app in today’s world. Many large business organizations are relying on WhatsApp communication. You can even get the business version of what’s app account and use it on your desktop computer. But this doesn’t mean normal users can’t use the WhatsApp app on their windows computers.

At times, we face some critical issues which force us to hide recent WhatsApp calls. This can be done very easily on the android phone but for the iPhone user, it might be a little bit challenging. To make things easier, we are going to teach you the exact way to hide your WhatsApp call on your iPhone.

Can We Hide Recent Whatsapp Call?

To be honest, there is no way to hide the recent WhatsApp call on iPhone other than using third-party software. Finding the best third-party software for this purpose is a bit more challenging and it often makes the user frustrated. Above all, this third-party software doesn’t come with a cheap price tag.

Can we delete the recent calls?

The obvious answer is YES. If you know the process, you can delete the recent WhatsApp calls in less than 30 seconds. While doing so, you need to pay special attention as a minor mistake can cause you to delete the contact number or other important call details.

Clearing call log

Clearing the call log in your WhatsApp is the safest method as you will no longer have the recent call details. Here’s how it’s done:

Step 1: Open your WhatsApp and try to find the ‘Calls‘ tab. The calls tab should be located at the bottom right corner of the app near status tab.

If you are trying to delete the call log for security purposes, we strongly suggest using a VPN. A VPN will protect your data from hackers and encrypt your vital data over the net. You may rely on Wireguard for basic safety. WireGuard is fast VPN protocol and it secures the data that you transmit over the internet. Even if you make a call or chat using WhatsApp, there is no way the hackers are going to learn about your locations. So, may you try it and see what changes it brings to your user experience.

Deleting individual call list

Some people might not prefer the idea of deleting the entire call log. In such cases, you may delete individual call lists by following these steps:

Step 1: You need to gain access to the call log. Repeat the above method still step 2.

Step 2: Tap on the ‘Minus‘ sign of the contact which you want to delete.

Step 3: When you tap it a slide tab will appear on the right of that contact marked as ‘Delete‘.

Step 4: Click on the Delete tab and the recent call from that contact number will be deleted.

Step 5: Don’t forget to press the ‘Done‘ tab on the top left side to end the task.

Note: This process is much safer but it will take time. But make sure you scroll to the bottom and see if the desired number is deleted from the entire call log. Let’s say person XYZ called you 10 times in the morning. So, you should have 10 entries for person XYZ in your call log. So, you have to delete the 10 entries manually.

Now, even in lock screen or when unlocked, if a Whatsapp notification will appear it will not show the content.

Buying expensive third-party apps

To delete the recent call list you may also buy expensive third-party apps. If you are lucky you might get a cheap one in the apple store. Most third-party apps allow you to delete calls based on a certain time frame. You can even delete call logs for a certain individual. Once you install such third-party apps, you need to understand that you have to always use this app to manage your recent contacts on WhatsApp. Unless you frequently need to delete specific numbers from your call logs, the third-party apps might not be a good solution.

In some cases, you might get premium third-party apps that will allow you to hide recent calls on WhatsApp. The call logs will remain hidden as long as the third-party apps work perfectly. If for any reason the third-party apps stop working, the hidden contact details will be visible in your WhatsApp call log and you might be in a big mess. So, consider this factor while using third-party apps.
