Now after doing all that you want on Whatsapp turn on WiFi or Data network, whatever that you use for internet. The message you sent earlier will go through and you will start receiving new message. This way WhatsApp wont update your Last Seen status, Online Status or Message Read status. These info gets updated only when you open WhatsApp application while you are connected to internet.

2-Use Third Part Application To Hide Your WhatsApp Last Seen or Online Status

Well, its more of a hit or miss! Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not. There are so many applications on Google Play Store that you would start thinking which one to use and which one works!
W-Tools is a useful application and during my test run it worked all the time. The application works in the background.
