WhatsApp is a popular messaging application that is available across different mobile platforms such as the iPhone, Android devices, and even Windows Phone.
Although WhatsApp allows iPhone users to send free text messages, audio, and media files to their friends and relatives across the globe for free, the app itself does have some limitations.
While there are many tweaks from Cydia that lets jailbroken users break free from almost all of the restrictions that WhatsApp put on its users, we certainly have a few in mind that will definitely fit for your daily usage.
Instead of having to try out every jailbreak tweaks out there, here are some of the best Cydia tweaks for WhatsApp that you can use on your iOS device.
When talking about WhatsApp Cydia tweaks, no one can deny that Watusi provides the most features for the application. Some users will not believe that they can actually enable or disable a certain functionality on there.
For those of you who concern about your privacy can take advantage of Watusi because you are allowed to hide last seen and disable Read Receipts, which prevent other contacts from knowing that you’ve received and read their messages.
The typing indicator is another feature that some of you may want to get rid off and of course, it’s possible to do so. If you are amazed by the new WhatsApp Web, this tweak will also enable this feature for you.
There are so much I can say about Watusi and its impact on WhatsApp in term of enhancing user’s experience and increase their protection.
Check out some of the notable features below:
- App Protection
- Protect your conversations on WhatsApp
- Lock all Chats: Lock all conversations
- Mute WhatsApp sound of sent/received messages and/or mute keyboard clicks
- Extend status length from 139 to 256 characters
- Get confirmation alert when you tab the Call button
- Call Recorder: Record all incoming and outgoing calls
- Hide timestamps for messages
- and much more
Just like how the developer described Watusi, the All in one tweak for WhatsApp Messenger!, this tweak is definitely worth the description. iPhone users with access to Cydia and grab the latest copy from the BigBoss repo. It supports devices running from iOS 7 to 9.
Do you want to know right away when your contacts are updating their status or images? WARecentsUpdates is a tweak that will send you a notification instantly the minute one of your contact have changed their profile picture or post a new status.
The fun thing is in the notification system where you can pull down and send that person a message that says, “I caught you” or something like that, makes it fun and surprise others. Once you install this tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repo, it will get to work right away, no need to setup.
WhatsApp Stealth Mode
If you are not looking for a one stop shop that provide many improvements to WhatsApp but a simple tweak that increase your privacy, then WhatsApp Stealth Mode is the right option.
All it does is help you hide your online status and freeze last seen time on WhatsApp. In other words, no one in your contacts will know whether you are online or offline and they won’t get an update of your last seen.
Once again, another free package available for download from the BigBoss repo.
Want to keep track of your friends on WhatsApp? Just like WARecentsUpdates, OnlineNotify will notify you whenever your friends are online on WhatsApp through notification. You can even keep track of their progress with the timestamp. For example, what time they get on and off.

Additionally, you will be notified when a contact starts typing a message and it also add an online indicator to your Chat list. OnlineNotify is an interesting tweak that you can purchase for your iPhone on the BigBoss repository.
