WhatsApp is an industry leader among end-to-end encrypted messaging services, and has devoted efforts to product innovation launching a number of noteworthy Privacy and Safety features for users in 2022. WhatsApp’s built in layers of protection gives users privacy and control over their conversations while messaging and safeguarding their digital well-being.
Here are the top 6 safety and privacy features WhatsApp launched in 2022 that ensure increased safety and security for users:
- Admin control: With the roll out of ‘Communities on WhatsApp’, admin control has been strengthened, making admins responsible for creating and managing Communities. Group admins have the ability to remove errant or problematic messages from group chats, choose which groups become part of their community or remove groups or individual members.
- Screenshot blocking for view once messages: View Once is already a trendy way to share photos or media that don’t need a permanent digital record. Screenshot blocking for View Once messages now ensures that no one can take a screenshot of the photos and videos
yousent, giving users even more control over their privacy.
- Leave group silently: We love our group chats but some are not forever. WhatsApp allows users to leave a group silently without having to notify everyone. Now, instead of notifying the full group when leaving, only the admins will be notified when a user exits a group.
