WhatsApp announced to roll out three new features to maintain user privacy: check out more

WhatsApp

Mark Zuckerberg, the founder and CEO of Meta, announced three important privacy features for WhatsApp on Tuesday. These features give users more control over their conversations and more protection when messaging. WhatsApp users can now manage who can see when you’re online, leave group chats quietly, and block screenshots on view-once messages, among other features.

WhatsApp users can now leave a group privately without having to notify everyone else. “Instead of notifying the entire group when someone leaves, only the admins will be notified.” “Meta stated that this feature will be available to all users starting this month.”

WhatsApp also added a feature that lets you control who can and cannot see when you’re online. This month, the feature will gradually become available to all users. For an additional layer of security, WhatsApp is also allowing screenshot blocking for “View Once” messages. This feature is currently being tested and will soon be available to users.

According to Mark Zuckerberg,

We’ll keep building new ways to protect your messages and keep them as private and secure as face-to-face conversations.

Ami Vora, WhatsApp’s Head of Product, said

Over the years, we’ve added interlocking layers of protection to help keep their conversations secure, and the new features is one way we continue to deliver on our commitment to keep messages private. To spread the word about these new features, we’re also kicking off a global campaign, starting with the UK and India, to educate people about how we work to protect their private conversations on WhatsApp.
