WhatsApp Chat Lock: Keep Your Secrets Safe[Upcoming]

WhatsApp has a new feature that lets you lock your chats. This means that even if someone else opens your phone, they won’t be able to see your private conversations.

To lock a chat, click on a display picture it and go to the contact info screen. Then, tap on “Chat Lock” and enter your device password or biometric authentication. Once the chat is locked, it will be moved to a separate folder called “Locked Chats.”

The “Locked Chats” folder is hidden from view, so you’ll need to unlock it with your password or biometric authentication before you can access it. This means that even if someone else opens your WhatsApp, they won’t be able to see your locked chats.

Chat Lock is a great way to keep your private conversations safe. If you have any chats that you don’t want anyone else to see, you can lock them with this feature.

So now you can send your sensitive content without worrying about it being saved.
