There’s no such thing as a 100% reliable way of know who is using WhatsApp Plus instead of the traditional WhatsApp, the only thing you can do is keep an eye out and check if you see any signs that could confirm your suspicions, unless your contact admits to using this MOD. In any case, keep an eye out for the following signs:

  • Status: if the person you’re talking to never shows his status in his chats, start suspecting. One of the main features of WhatsApp Plus is that it allows us to hide this information. Therefore, if you’re talking to someone that never appears Online, that can be the first symptom that he’s using a MOD of this nature.
  • Connection time: another one of the main features of WhatsApp Plus is that it allows us to hide the last seen time. If you find an empty field when you check this information, that’s the second sign that he could be using a MOD.
  • Replies with the double blue check: when you send a message on WhatsApp and your contact reads it, it shows a double blue check. If you’re in a conversation and your contact answers you but the messages you’re sending don’t have the double blue check, that’s a third sign to think that that person is using a MOD. If that double blue check only appears when he answers you, even more reasons to be suspicious as it’s a function that has just been added to WhatsApp Plus.
  • Emoticons you can’t see: all MODs offer us loads of additional emoticons that aren’t available in the official version. If you get sent emoticons but you can’t see them on your phone’s screen, and you can only view a tiny square with a question mark inside, there goes another sign to thank he’s using WhatsApp Plus or any other MOD. Only if you’re also using it will you be able to see that content.
