Share with your friends

The messaging service owned by Meta is working on a new project as it prepares to give its users an additional layer of security.

WhatsApp is developing a feature that will include a screen lock and prevent unauthorised access for devices running the app. The feature is still being developed, and a release date has not yet been announced, claims WebetaInfo.

Screen Lock for WhatsApp

This feature is not available on the web/desktop client but WhatsApp is finally developing a solution by bringing the screen lock option to a future update of WhatsApp Desktop beta

As you can see in this screenshot, a password is required every time the user opens the application and it is useful when you share your PC with other people.

Note that enabling this feature is optional and probably, the user will have more control over it by choosing when the app should require the password.

In addition, the password won’t be shared with WhatsApp: it is always saved locally.

If you forget your password, you’ll need to log out of the app and re-log in to WhatsApp Desktop by scanning the QR code with your mobile smartphone.

Since this feature is currently in development, some interface components in the screenshot might be missing. In addition, WhatsApp may include a feature that, in cases where a fingerprint sensor is available on a Mac, enables users to lock the application using Touch ID.

The new In-chat poll feature was recently released by the instant messaging app for both Android and iOS.
