WhatsApp is the world’s most popular messaging service. It was launched in 2009 and since then, has become the standard medium of communication. It has been providing users with various features that help make communication more accessible and more secure.
The most recent addition to its feature list is the launch of its ‘lock and privately hide individual chats’ feature. This feature was designed specifically to ensure that users’ private conversations are secure. These will be only viewable by those they choose to share them with.
What it Does
These new WhatsApp features allow users to lock and hide individual chats. This means that users can password-protect specific chats to ensure their privacy. This feature also allows users to hide their private chats, which means they won’t be on their chat list or message notifications.
The feature is completely optional, so users can choose which of their chats they want to keep secure and private. If they do choose to enable this feature, we will ask them to set a password each time they access the chat.
The Benefits of These Whatsapp Features
The ‘lock and hide’ feature is incredibly useful for those who want to protect their conversations from those who shouldn’t be reading them. It allows them to keep their messages secure without the fear of someone else accessing them.
It is beneficial for users who don’t want their private messages to be in their chat list when other people access their phones, as they can easily be hidden.
Unlike other messaging services, WhatsApp has a highly secure end-to-end encryption platform. This means that only the people involved in a conversation can view or access the messages. No one else, even WhatsApp, can decipher or access the messages.
Even if the conversation is backed up, the platform ensures the messages are encrypted. The encryption on its servers allows it to prevent access without the user’s consent.
The ‘lock and hide’ feature is important in providing users with the security they need to keep their conversations safe. Furthermore, the addition of this feature demonstrates WhatsApp’s commitment to providing a secure platform.
This feature is likely to be welcomed by users who want to keep their conversations private and secure. It provides a great way to ensure that only ‘authorised’ people can access your conversations, making it impossible for anyone else to view them.
