You can also disable this option from privacy settings. If you ever disable it, you won’t also see if your friends read your messages. You will only know that if they have received them. You can always take back those settings and enable read receipts once more.
Basically you should do the following for enable or disable read receipts: Run WhatsApp > Settings > Account > Privacy > Swipe Down > Enable/Disable Read Receipts.
