WhatsApp has been on a roll for a while now. Giving proper software updates and debugging any issues in relation to security or the app itself, the app has been developing at a steady pace for some time. Even recently, the app has made various new additions to its features, making it more user-friendly and secure.
The app had already introduced its own UPI function for editing chats, disappearing messages, etc.; now it has also released an option to lock certain chats just like its app lock. Unlike the archive option that has existed in the app for many years, WhatsApp now offers the option to lock individual chats, which makes intimate chats more private.
The Meta-owned app always expresses how they are very secure in their messaging function, claiming that all the texts within the app are encrypted and not even the makers of the app can access the chats. This security is what drives the app forward, and the addition of the new feature just makes it more secure. Users can easily access the chat lock by:
Step 1: Open the chat that the user wants to lock> Visit the profile> Scroll down to the Chat Lock option.
Step 2: Tap on either Lock this chat with fingerprint or Lock this chat with Face ID.
As per reports, WhatsApp is also working on various new features. Two of them are expected to be the introduction of usernames and the addition of the function of screen sharing. The introduction of usernames in WhatsApp will let users share their messages with anyone without disclosing their phone number.
The addition of screen sharing will let users share their screens while video calling anyone, which is essentially useful for seminars and conferences.
