Find who is Invisible on Yahoo messenger

Sometimes some of your friends who appear offline in yahoo messenger may not be actually offline, they may in the 'Invisible' mode. This maybe if they are trying to ignore you or are too busy to talk to anyone.

There is this small trick that you can use to find out what the truth is.

Firstly open your yahoo messenger main window and double click on the name of the person whom you want to check. The chat window will open obviously.
Click IMVironment button, select See all IMVironments, select Yahoo! Tools or Interactive Fun, and click on Doodle.
After loading the Doodle imvironment there can be two possibilities


1.If the user is offline Doodle are will show this "waiting for your friend to load Doodle" continuously

2. If the user is online (but in invisible mode), after few seconds (it can take up to one minute, depending on your connection speed), you should get a blank page like in the picture below. So you know that the user is online.

I appear offline in yahoo messenger even If I am online


Yahoo! Messenger gives you the option to make your status appear "online", "busy" or "offline." If you want to appear online all the time you must set the messenger to do so, especially if you changed it to a different setting at any point.

1.Sign On
In order to set your instant messenger to "online" you must sign in to your account. You should use your Yahoo! email address and password to sign in to the account. If you want the program to sign you in automatically, you must check these options on the initial sign in box.

2. Settings
Click your name at the top of the "friends" list and change your setting to "available." Available means you are online at your computer and ready to chat.

3. Changes
No changes are made to your status unless you sign off (which you will then appear offline) or if you physically change your setting. It does not change every time you sign off.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks

in yahoo the chat window text is invisible to me why please solve the problem


  • Download Buddy Spy software through Yahoo!, which will allow you to view users when they are invisible.

  • Open Yahoo! Instant Messenger.

  • Click on your main buddy list.

  • View the user names. When the buddy is offline the name will be gray. When the buddy is invisible, it will read invisible next to their name.

  • Send a message to that user in the message window

    I sign in yahoo messenger as invisible and people still know I am online how can I stop this?


    Hi,

    There is no way one can know if you are online ( Available/invisisble ) or offline as long as the person seated next to you or standing right behind you.

    But there is a catch. There are lot of available websites through which one can easily find out if a person is online or not or if the person is online and is in invisible mode. Try this yourself if you want to know how they find out about you.

    Maybe they know the time you usually get online and if you are in invisible mode, they simply track your yahoo email id and find out if you are online and in invisible model

    As of now there is no known solution to block people from checking your yahoo status but if I find any such, I will inform you.

    The best you can do is to give them reasons like you weren't infront of PC or that your PC screen was frozen or Yahoo was frozen etc. etc.. :) ( hope these reasons works for you and the person who are searching for you online )

    Click on the link below to open the webpage and enter the person's yahoo id you want to know to find the status

    I can't see any sign when my friends log in. Even it appears to be offline when someone log in. What's problem?


    Your friend(s) are probably logging in as invisible. This allows them to log on and use the messenger but others will see them as being offline.

    friends' yahoo messenger ID blocked.Can't add it to my msgr list!


    I have used Zak's nobuddy before - it has been updated to work with yahoo's newest protocols.

    Test: (A) I have 2 yahoo ID's - I added each to the other:
    (B) I use Yahoo Messenger version 9.0.0.2162
    (C) I was invisible mode at all times on each ID

    1 I then got this zak nobuddy to remove one from the other:
    2 It worked (although it left no message - I was simply gone).
    3 I then performed the normal add request - this too worked fine and I was added again as soon as ID2 accepted.

    You say it's blocked from your contact list:
    I would check from messengers menu bar
    messenger/ preferences/ ignore list and see if your friends ID is in there.
