Keeping in Mind the Privacy of the Users, WhatsApp Introduced Three New Features


Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday announced three key privacy features in WhatsApp that give users more control over their conversations and provide additional layers of security when sending messages.

The new features allow WhatsApp Users to Exit Group Chats without notifying everyone. Control who can see when you’re online and prevent screenshots from viewing messages once.

“We will continue to develop new ways to protect your messages and keep them as private and secure as face-to-face conversations,” Zuckerberg said.

WhatsApp Users will Now be Able to Exit A Group Privately Without Informing Anyone

“Now, instead of notifying the entire Group upon exit, only the admin will be notified. The feature will roll out to all users this month,” the social network said.

WhatsApp has also introduced the ability to choose who can and cannot see you when you are online. This feature will start rolling out to all Users this month.

WhatsApp is also enabling screenshot blocking for ‘view once’ messages for an added layer of security.

This Feature is Being Tested and will be Rolled out to the Users Soon

Ami Vora, Head of Product at WhatsApp, said, “Over the years, we’ve added interlocking layers of security to help keep their conversations secure, and new features are one way we continue our commitment to keeping messages private. “

Vora said, “To spread the word about these new features, we are also launching a global campaign, starting in the UK and India, to educate people on how to secure their private conversations on WhatsApp. How to keep working.”
