WhatsApp is one of the most popular messenger services around the world. One new feature follows the next in the app. At least as far as the beta version is concerned. After WhatsApp recently announced that it wanted to introduce a global player for voice messages, something new is coming to data protection.

According to the blog WABetaInfo The new beta version for Android shows a new function that is primarily intended to further strengthen data protection. If the user goes to data protection in the beta version for Android in the settings, he should discover a new window when selecting “Info” or “About”. Up to now it was only possible to display the information of your own WhatsApp account for everyone, your own contacts or nobody. In the beta version there is now “My contacts, except …”.

The text that is displayed as info can be seen by your contacts under your profile information on WhatsApp. The user can add up to 139 characters to the info. Don’t you want to share personal texts with all contacts? With “All contacts, except …”, targeted contacts can soon be excluded. So you don’t have to block every contact just so that they don’t see your information.

Hide info from specific contacts

Hiding information from certain people is something we already know on WhatsApp from the status setting. This has also been excluded from certain contacts for some time. Because not everyone necessarily wants distant contacts to see every holiday experience that is posted, for example. Or in this case a confidential text that is not everyone’s business.

It is not yet clear when the update to the final version of Android and iOS will be available. You should be almost certain that the feature will come when you consider how much WhatsApp currently attaches importance to data protection and advertises it again and again.
