WhatsApp beta has some good news to entice users to send encrypted instant messages whereby the messenger app has heightened its security system for the sake of privacy. The beta extension of the green app introduces “Chat Lock” which features hiding threads of conversation from other lists of chats on the green app.
Chat Lock will feature on WhatsApp Messenger – this feature is added to the various layers of the security system the green app parent company has embedded. Chat Lock security system does not delete nor added to an archive chat folder, yet it is developed to create a standalone folder to house hidden chats.
Meta – WhatsApp parent company confirmed the new privacy options tweaked in the green app Settings. “New locked chats in WhatsApp make your conversations more private. They’re hidden in a password-protected folder and notifications won’t show sender or message content,” Meta CEO, Mark Zuckerberg said.
According to the WhatsApp report, the new feature under development in the beta landscape has the typical security standards that require users’ password or biometric profiles such as fingerprints or facial recognition profiles saved on the device.
Tech enthusiasts are familiar with the next feature to the flagship WhatsApp security layers called the Chat Lock security system — “the intimate conversation vault” designed to be optimal for couples and compatible with interesting relationships with partners who cheat.
WhatsApp’s parent company will be adding a secretive security system to protect “your most intimate conversations” and hide notifications from friends, spouses, family, etc. Aside from gadgets users confiding documents in their devices, this feature now makes users to confide with the green app without needing a third-party vault to hide secrets in threads of chats.
The Chat Lock security system is new to the social media market, yet another significant form of encryption in general. This form of data encryption is globally used, yet the European regulatory system bids against in-depth encryption such as the WhatsApp upcoming feature that hides chats.
For instance, the UK online safety policy bids against in-depth encryption such as the Chat Lock WhatsApp has in its beta programs to sway users’ interest in concealing specific chat threads. This denotes that the WhatsApp messaging encryption service will encounter regulatory scolds thus releasing this feature for UK users.
The Chat Lock security system currently on WhatsApp beta is an impressive privacy system that allows users to encrypt their backups, block the ability to screenshot, and make their messages disappear automatically. Still, the green app developers are yet to disclose when the privacy settings will be tweaked for global users.
