WhatsApp has announced that it is introducing a new feature called “Chat Lock” that allows users to block access to their conversations.
The new option will create a new folder that can be locked with a password or biometric methods such as a fingerprint.
You can protect your chats by selecting the lock option after tapping a one-on-one or group chat.
It will also automatically hide the locked chat in notifications.
“We believe this feature will be great for people who occasionally share their phones with a family member or when someone else is holding your phone,” the company said.
To view locked chats, gently pull down on your inbox and unlock it with your password or the biometric ID you used to lock the chat.
WhatsApp said it plans to expand its chat lock options. This includes a lock for companion devices and the ability to use a personalized chat password, which can be different from your phone’s password.
