A person on my WhatsApp contact list profile seems different. I sometimes see their 'online' status but other times it doesn't show anything...
I never see her 'last seen'. Only nothing or 'online'
My understanding is you can turn it off so people cannot see your status, but I can see her 'online' but never last seen. Just 'online' or nothing.

Anyone know WhatsApp? Anyone know what this is all about?

That’s normal, that person probably switched off last seen but for everyone the online stays. Like you can switch it off but the online is always gonna be there, whatsapp doesn’t let you shut that off I think

You can turn off your 'last seen' in the settings, to prevent people seeing when you were last online. However, WhatsApp doesn't allow you to turn off the 'online' notification.
A lot of people turn it off because they can't be bothered with "who were you talking to last night at 11pm?" or "why were you online earlier but you've not replied to my message?".
If you're using the 'last seen' function to keep tabs on someone, that's not healthy.
If they've blocked you then you won't be able to see their profile picture.
