Hello,
I'm wondering if I have whatsapp installed on my android cell phone but not running, meaning it doesn't show up when I press the recent apps button on my phone, will I show up as "online" to other whatsapp users in my contact list? I ask because a few days ago, a friend sent me a message asking me if I was available because she said she could see that I was online. However, I'm almost certain that I had ended the app about an hour earlier (tapped recent apps key then tapped the X on whatsapp. Also, let's say I do have whatsapp running but I'm using another app for example twitter, would I show up as online then? I'm assuming so considering I have the app open but want to be sure.

May be the app is open in the foreground or background.You have to close it before locking your screen.

No,it won't show online....but in some cases it does show online,you have to clear the app from background of your device.
