WhatsApp has announced plans to roll out a new security feature for WhatsApp Web and Desktop.
The new WhatsApp Security Feature is described as a face and fingerprint unlock when linking devices.
According to a tweet by the Management of WhatsApp, the app does not see the user’s face or fingerprint data.
Earlier, Everyevery.ng had reported that neither WhatsApp nor Facebook could read user’s messages or hear their calls on WhatsApp.
Also, WhatsApp doesn’t keep logs of who everyone is messaging or calling; WhatsApp stated that keeping call and message records for two billion users would be both a privacy and security risk.
WhatsApp Security Feature
According to WhatsApp, when you share your location with someone on the platform, no one can see your site except the people you share it with.
Users can set their messages to disappear or choose to put such chats to disappear from conversations after it has been sent.
Furthermore, users can download and see what WhatsApp has on their account right from within the app (read more here).
