Hiding your WhatsApp profile photo for a specific contact is possible with a simple hint. The messenger does not have a native option to hide the image of just a friend without having to block it. In privacy settings, the user can choose to disable the photo view for unknown people - those who do not have the number saved on the phone. Therefore, to hide from only one contact, you must activate the feature and delete the phonebook number.
In the following tutorial, check out how to hide your profile photo for specific WhatsApp people. The procedures were performed on an E4 Moto with Android 7.1.1 Nougat and on an iPhone 8 running iOS 12.
