WhatsApp introduced blueticks in 2014 to help senders know when a recipient reads a message. The bluetick is a double tick at the bottom of your sent WhatsApp texts. The grey delivered ticks turn blue whenever a recipient views your message.
The blue tick informs you when someone opens or reads your message.
Hiding blue ticks in WhatsApp helps you selectively respond to your messages. It also gives time to read and understand long or complex messages, prevents the sender from knowing that you read the message, reduces anxiety stemming from ignored messages, and improves privacy by activating stealth mode for group conversations.
