Whatsapp Chat Lock Feature
Whatapp reported that they were working on the chat lock feature in the WhatsApp application, as we shared with you in the past days. With the incoming update, this feature was introduced to the devices and started to be used actively. Thanks to the Whatsapp chat lock feature, you can lock the chats you want. On smartphones with fingerprint feature, you can use the fingerprint reader to open locked chats, as well as unlock your locked chats with faceid, along with the face recognition feature. If it does not recognize your face, you can also open your chats by entering a password from the enter password section at the bottom.
Why do we need Whatsapp chat lock?
When we give your phone to someone for a short time, our private conversations get stuck in our minds and we always remain in doubt. You don’t have to worry about it anymore because you can lock your private chats that you don’t want others to see. When a message comes from locked chats, a notification comes, but the content of the notification does not include who it came from or the message. It is only displayed as a new notification from whatsapp.
How to Lock Whatsapp Chat?
After opening the chat of the group or person you want, tap their name from the top and scroll down and “Chat lock” will appear. See:
To view locked chats, you have to swipe down while in the “chats” tab. When you swipe, the locked chats section opens as in the picture below, and you can log in by clicking and entering your password.
So you can use whatsapp chat lock feature successfully. We think it is a feature that should have come a long time ago, since Wahtsapp is one hand in its field, we say that even though it can delay bringing such nice features as much as it wants, we say it’s not too late and we recommend you to experience this beautiful feature. You can share your experiences and thoughts about this feature with us in the comments section below.
