WhatsApp makes it easier to get away with cheating and find out your partner is cheating.
Meta’s messaging app launches a “chat lock” feature that allows users to keep their private conversations exactly private.
The locked chats are in a protected folder that can only be accessed via a passcode or biometric data such as TouchID or FaceID.
Enabling the feature also means that notifications of these messages will not appear on the notification screen, hiding the sender and actual message content.
While WhatsApp is known for its end-to-end encrypted messages, users joke that the new privacy feature has “improved” cheating.
“This is amazing and progressive. “The doors of the enhanced scam were opened by Mark Zuckerberg,” one person said noticed.
“This new chat blocking feature on WhatsApp will make life even easier for unfaithful partners,” another wrote.
“Cheating just got easier with this WhatsApp chat blocker feature,” someone said pointed out.
“So there’s a new WhatsApp feature to block chats one by one?” one user called. “These men are taking cheating to a higher level. Mark Zuckerberg is not helping the relationship industry at all.”
“Lol WhatsApp now allows people to block individual chats. Wow. Tailored to cheat,” another tweeted.
Many people also voice their opinions in Mark Zuckerberg’s comments Facebook post about the function.
“Very amazing. Thank you for protecting our relationships!” one person commented.
“Great it’s awesome and useful for scammers,” quipped another.
“This is such great and wonderful news,” one wrote. “Thank you Mr . Fraud has been improved.”
“Good luck and all the best, Mr. Mark. That’s the important hallmark of more and more divorces and breakups,” another Zuck thanked.
“Thanks Mark, I can cheat in peace now,” said one user.
“Mark is always working to reduce the chances of unfaithful boys getting caught,” joked one.
In a blog post titled “Chat Lock: Make your most intimate conversations even more private“Meta revealed that they will add additional options for the lock feature such as B. locking companion devices and creating unique chat-specific passwords instead of the one used for your phone.
“We think this feature will be great for people who have a reason to share their phone with a family member from time to time, or for that moment when someone else is holding your phone at the precise moment in which a very special chat arrives,” Meta wrote in the blog.
