WhatsApp introduces a new way to protect your important conversations

WhatsApp, the messaging app owned by Meta, is introducing a new feature that allows you to hide your important conversations behind a secret code of your choice. This feature brings more privacy and security to the app users.

Until now, password-protected conversations were visible in the general conversation list. With the new feature, they can be hidden and accessed just by entering a secret code in the WhatsApp search bar. The secret code can contain letters, numbers, special characters and even emoji.

This feature is supposed to prevent other people from knowing that you have a protected chat folder if they happen to take a look at your phone.

WhatsApp also mentions that you can choose to have your protected conversations appear in your chat list at any time. The Meta-owned chat app first introduced Secret Chats in May, which let you protect your chats in a folder that you can only open using your fingerprint, face scan or password. In addition to the new passcode feature, WhatsApp says you can now lock a conversation by long-pressing the conversation instead of going into the chat’s settings.

Meta started rolling out the feature, which allows you to hide your important conversations, from November 30th and will be available globally in the coming months. So, WhatsApp users can expect more security and privacy when it comes to managing their secret conversations.
