WhatsApp is introducing a new feature called “Secret Code” to enhance user privacy and help users better secure their private chats. This feature is being provided by Meta. 

According to ‘Wabteinfo,’ the ‘Secret Code’ feature is currently available on the WhatsApp web version. With this update, users can lock their private chats with a unique security code, which provides an extra layer of protection when using WhatsApp on a computer. This means that private conversations will remain secure and unauthorized access can be prevented unless the correct code is entered.

The ‘Secret Code’ feature mirrors the existing ‘Chat Lock’ on smartphones, allowing users to lock specific chats using their thumbprint. This added security measure ensures that crucial and private information remains inaccessible to prying eyes. Notably, this feature was not initially available on the web version, leaving users concerned about maintaining their chat privacy while using laptops or computers for work.

Addressing this concern, ‘Meta’ has now extended the ‘Security Code’ feature to the WhatsApp web version, offering users a reliable means to protect their conversations. As the use of instant messaging apps like WhatsApp continues to surge, ensuring privacy becomes paramount. Regularly updating the app, including the installation of new features like ‘Secret Code,’ is a crucial step in safeguarding your WhatsApp experience.

Meta emphasizes the importance of user vigilance in preserving privacy, encouraging practices such as securing one’s phone with a pin or biometric, refraining from sharing passwords and avoiding interactions with unknown or suspicious numbers. With these updates, WhatsApp remains at the forefront of providing a secure and private communication platform for users of all ages.
