The feature works in the similar manner for WhatsApp messages as well. Once the read receipt feature is disabled, your contacts will not be able to see blue ticks or know whether you read their message or not. This also works the other way round, in simple words, with read receipt disabled, you will not be able to see if a contact read your message, you sent them on WhatsApp.
So, if you can deal with not knowing who read your messages and viewed your Status, go ahead and disable the read receipt option on WhatsApp now.
