Share your love

Mark Zuckerberg recently announced through his social networks that WhatsApp developers have published the “chat lock” tool in the beta program of their instant messaging application. This feature serves to enhance the security and privacy of personal or group conversations, as users will only be able to access the chats by placing their fingerprint or Face ID authentication.

While many users have already been using the “chat blocking” function in the beta version of WhatsApp, some are still left with questions that have not been answered. In this article, we will provide all the answers to the most commonly asked questions about this feature.

Here are all the details about the WhatsApp “Chat Blocking” feature:

1. You can block unlimited conversations

There are no limits to the amount of conversations you can block. Once you block a chat, the folder called “Blocked Chats” will appear at the top of the main WhatsApp interface. This folder cannot be hidden like the “Archived” one.

2. Blocked chats will not generate notifications

You will not receive notifications from any of the chats you have blocked.

3. Multimedia content will not be automatically saved

Any multimedia content that you have sent or received in blocked chats will not be automatically saved in the gallery or internal folders of your smartphone.

4. You can use a password instead of fingerprint or Face ID

If you prefer not to use fingerprint or Face ID authentication, you can create a password to unlock your chats.

5. End-to-end encryption

All blocked chats come with end-to-end encryption, ensuring maximum privacy and security.

6. Locked conversations will not apply to other linked devices

For now, locked conversations will not apply to other devices linked to your WhatsApp account.

7. Forgetting your password may cause chat information loss

If you forget your password, you will lose access to the chat and all associated information. To chat with the user again, you will have to try to unlock the chat. However, after multiple failed attempts, WhatsApp will delete the information for security reasons.

In addition to this, WhatsApp has a minimum age requirement to use the application. If you reside in a country of the European Economic Area, you must be 16 years or older. For countries that do not belong to the European Region, the minimum age is 13 years or older, depending on the country’s legislation.

In conclusion, WhatsApp is constantly updating and releasing new features to enhance user experience when sending or receiving texts, stickers, or multimedia content. To stay updated with the latest WhatsApp news and tricks, make sure you visit our website at Mag and follow us on social media.
