2. Head over to WhatsApp and open your profile.
3. Under profile, tap on Status to edit it. Long tap and select Paste to get the two characters copied earlier.

With this, you’re done. Here’s how your status will appear to others on your profile.
It is time to get to the second method.
Method 2: Remove/Hide WhatsApp Status(Android & iOS)
This method can be used by both Android and iPhone users. It uses the setting available in the official app to hide WhatsApp status making it appear as empty.
The steps and screenshots are from iOS version but the process remains the same for Android as well.
1. Open WhatsApp and go to Settings.
2. Under Settings select Account.
3. Next, go to Privacy and select Status.
4. Finally, select Nobody.
After setting status to Nobody your status will not be shown. It will also look like a blank or Empty status.
