This is something every person does, trying to pretend offline, but in reality, they are online and invisible. Hence, I decided to post on the same. This guide will show you, how to detect invisible user on Yahoo. Obviously, everyone would be interested or eager know how to detect people status, i.e. Offline or pretending to be offline.Most people pretend to be offline using invisible option in Yahoo’s messenger.

There are some software too, which will check Yahoo user id Status. It’s always better to use online services instead of installing software. However, we are listing some of the popular software for the same.
1. Buddy Spy – this is not an online service. Buddy Spy is a little program that you can download and install on your computer. It detects multiple user-id, but I don’t recommend this because you have to login using yahoo-id and its a third-party software which you need to install in your PC. It always a risk of malware or spyware when installing unknown third-party software

2. BuddyCheck – Another program that you can download and install, which will show you exactly who is online and who is offline, But it’s not free. You have to pay for this about $20.

So, think twice before you try to pretend yourself as offline, or you can reveal some of your friends status who are pretending to be offline.
