WhatsApp, the popular instant messaging platform, is reportedly developing a new feature that allows users to set a secret code for locked chats. This additional layer of security is separate from the main phone password and grants users greater control over their protected conversations.
According to a report by WABetaInfo, this new feature significantly boosts the privacy of conversations, even in the unlikely event of someone gaining access to your phone. These locked chats will be listed separately and can only be accessed through your phones PIN or biometric authentication.
Thanks to the latest WhatsApp beta for Android 184.108.40.206 update, available on the Google Play Store, it has been discovered that WhatsApp is actively working on new ways to access this section of the app. A screenshot shared in the report revealed WhatsApp’s plan to introduce a feature allowing users to configure a secret code for locked chats.
