In May, WhatsApp introduced a groundbreaking Chat Lock feature, letting users safeguard their conversations with either their device password or biometric ID like fingerprints. This clever feature discreetly tucks away private chats into a specialized “Locked Chats” folder.
Now, raising the bar on security, WhatsApp introduces its latest addition – the Secret Code for Chat Lock.
This nifty function lets users set a unique password exclusive to the locked chats folder. To access this hidden realm, one simply needs to enter the secret code into WhatsApp’s search bar.
Creating the secret code is a breeze, with users having the freedom to choose a mix of letters, numbers, special characters, or even emojis. And for those who prefer transparency, there’s an option to keep locked chats visible in the main chat list.
WhatsApp has simplified the chat security process, making it more user-friendly. Forget the hassle of diving into settings; now, you can lock a chat with a simple long-press.
The Secret Code feature is already rolling out and is set to reach users worldwide in the coming months, promising an extra layer of protection for your cherished conversations.
