How to disable or enable read receipts for Messages

<div id="link_wrapped_content">
<body><section class="wp-block-bigbite-multi-title"><div class="container"></div></section><p>Read receipts in iMessage within Messages lets you allow other people to know when you&rsquo;ve read a message they sent you. You can turn the feature on globally in iOS or iPadOS at Settings &gt; Messages or in macOS in Messages at&nbsp;Messages &gt; Preferences &gt; iMessage.</p>

<p>While the global setting affects both everyone in your contacts list and all other iMessages interactions, you can override it on a person-by-person basis. Strangely, you don&rsquo;t use Contacts to control this setting. Instead, you have to start with a conversation in Messages in iOS/iPadOS or macOS.</p>

<p>In Messages in iOS or iPadOS, select a conversation and tap the person&rsquo;s avatar. Swipe down to find the Send Read Receipts switch. You can enable or disable it.</p>

<p>In macOS, launch Messages and select a conversation. Click the i info button in the upper-right corner of the window and then scroll to find the Send Read Receipts checkbox.</p>
