WhatsApp to Allow Users “Lock Chats” in New Update

WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta, is apparently developing a new feature for its customers. The instant messaging service might add a function that lets users lock chats and make them inaccessible to other users.

The function was discovered in the most recent WhatsApp beta for Android 2.23.8.2, which is accessible through the Google Play Store. With a subsequent update, it will be made available to all users.

According to the source, WhatsApp users will be able to lock particular chats using a passcode or fingerprint once the capability is enabled. This will bolster WhatsApp’s security and enable users to shield private information from prying eyes. In particular, immediately within the chat’s contact or group details, it will be easy to lock your most private discussions.

After locking a chat, it can only be accessed using the phone’s passcode or the user’s fingerprint. Also, once a chat is added to the list of locked chats, it will only be available from this screen. In the event that a user tries to access these locked chats and fails, he or she will be prompted to clear the chat to open it.
