New WhatsApp update stops users from taking screenshots of private chats
A new WhatsApp update seems set to stop people screenshotting their private conversations.
It doesn’t appear to block someone taking screengrabs of your chats, perhaps to avoid them being shared with other people, according to WABetaInfo, the blog that first reported on the changes. Instead, it means that you turn on the app’s highest security settings, you won’t be able to take grabs of your own.
The change comes as part of an authentication feature that has been long rumoured but is yet to appear within WhatsApp. That feature allows people to set fingerprint access to conversations, adding a further layer of security so that people can’t get access to your phone and read or send private messages.
However, enabling that fingerprint security feature also turns on the conversation screenshot blocking option, meaning that it isn’t possible to take pictures of your own chats.
It is not clear why the feature works that way, and WABetaInfo expressed confusion about the way it works.
