On Monday, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder, and CEO of Meta, unveiled a new WhatsApp feature called “Chat Lock” to protect customers’ most private communications further.
At the point when a chat is locked, the thread is eliminated from your inbox and put in a different envelope that must be seen with your gadget’s password or a biometric, like a fingerprint. Furthermore, it consequently conceals that talk’s substance from notifications.
This functionality will be useful for folks who occasionally share their phones with family members or in situations when someone else is holding your phone while an especially important chat arrives.
By squeezing the name of a group or coordinated discussion and picking the lock choice, you can lock that chat. Pull down your inbox gradually to reveal these chats, then enter your password or biometric.
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.
