WhatsApp is now blocking Screenshots
WhatsApp is now blocking Screenshots Taking From The View Once Mode.
WhatsApp Beta users are now able to ensure that they aren't able to take screenshots of videos or images that are sent using View-once Mode.
This update is made available via WABetaInfo who claims that this change was observed in WhatsApp Beta Android version 220.127.116.11 this week.
It's been in development for both iOS along with Android versions since the beginning of August.
However, Android beta users are enjoying it at present and we anticipate the rollout to occur in the next months.
It is not allowed for users to take pictures of messages that they have seen is essential, or else the entire point of this feature is a sham.
But it is apparent that the feature isn't alerting those on the other end of the spectrum, which could have been beneficial and alert the user about the actions.
WhatsApp recently released an array of new updates that give you additional options. You can make an WhatsApp message to be unsent for up to two days.
This is accessible to iOS and Android users of smartphones across the world. Meta is expected to add additional privacy tools to the messaging app over the next weeks.
