WhatsApp notification icon for 2 seconds

After every few minutes, i see the Whatsapp notification icon for 1-2 seconds (I think it is when app checks for new messages).

If there anyway to disable this category of notification icon? Because it makes me feel that i have received a new message.

issue faced since ____?

issue faced on (official app, modded app)?

if on official app, can try migrating to the Whatsapp Business app.

Unless some recent changes have been made there is no such feature in whatsapp that it creates a temporary notification up top or pings their server on specific cues.

If it is vanishing so fast, are you able to see it when actively using? Can you capture the screen and check or share here.
I suspect it to be some other notification, maybe like update available or something.. from some other app that might be using a similar icon.

Possibility of data collection (audio/video) for fb to show you relevant ads in Facebook/Instagram/threads as whatsapp has permissions to access everything.

And policies of whatsapp mention that they can share data with meta i.e fb/insta/threads.

Android 13 gives you option to restrict a particular type of notification for apps. So you will still receive notification for your friend messages but you will not ever see this "Checking new messages" thing. I had faced same issue, then I blocked those notifications from mobile setting. But if you are using  android version below13 then there is no way.
