WhatsApp users are encouraged to verify two settings

Users of the WhatsApp messenger who fear that strangers can read their correspondence have been urged to pay attention to two points in the application’s settings. According to The Sun, they can be used to make messaging more secure.

First of all, users have been advised to check if they have enabled additional screen lock in WhatsApp. This feature will make it impossible to use the messenger for someone who is holding someone else’s unlocked phone, since you will need to unlock the screen again to access WhatsApp.

To enable this feature in the iPhone version of Messenger, you need to open the app, go to Settings and select “Account” and then “Privacy”. After that, you need to go to the “Lock screen” tab and select the option “Require Touch ID” or “Require Face ID”.

Another useful feature in the publication was self-destruct notifications. If you activate it, old correspondence will be deleted automatically. You can enable this option if you select the “Timer” line in the “Privacy” tab and set the desired time: 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days.

In early September, it was announced that WhatsApp Messenger will have a new feature that allows users to create personalized avatars and make sticker packs to go with them. In addition, avatars can be used as masks during video calls. So far, this feature only works in the beta version of Android Messenger. There is no word on when exactly it will be available to all WhatsApp users.
