A Chrome extension that disables read receipts and presence updates on WhatsApp Web

Disable read receipts – WhatsApp is a great messaging, file-sharing application with many users. It is available for android and iPhone devices. If you want to use this WhatsApp application on windows or Mac devices, you can use it through the WhatsApp web.

WhatsApp developers have given more options to the user, but a few individual developers are giving more options through yowhatsapp, gbwhatsapp, etc.

This is the only whats app for android phones that individual developers can release. So in this post, we will see how to use the feature that can be in GB WhatsApp in normal WhatsApp.

Usually, most people use what’s app through whats app web, so we can use more features by installing a simple extension on WhatsApp web.

How it works

This extension works by intercepting the WebSocket frames between chrome and WhatsApp’s servers using a modified WebSocket constructor (see wsHook).

Those frames are then decrypted if needed using local encryption keys, and decoded from their binary XMPP form using a javascript code from WhatsApp’s original implementation.

The resulting “nodes” are then simply checked to see if WhatsApp tries to send out a read or presence action, and if so, the extension blocks it and fakes a failure response from the server.
