WhatsApp introduce Chat Lock

‘Chat Lock,’ a new WhatsApp privacy feature that enables users to prevent others from viewing their most private conversations, is currently being rolled out by Meta.

“Locking a chat takes that thread out of your inbox and puts it behind its own folder that can only be accessed with your device’s password or biometric, like a fingerprint. It also automatically hides the contents of that chat in notifications, too.”

“We believe this feature will be great for people who share their phones from time to time with a family member, or in moments where someone else is holding your phone at the exact moment an extra-special chat arrives.” Said Meta in a post.

A new folder created by Chat Lock can be secured with a password or a biometric feature like a fingerprint. After selecting the name of a one-on-one or group chat, you may choose the lock option to protect the confidentiality of your communications.

In the coming months, Meta will be introducing more Chat Lock features, such as locks for companion devices and the ability to create a custom chat password that is separate from your phone’s. Chat Lock will be made available to WhatsApp users worldwide.
