Suara.com – WhatsApp has just announced a new feature called “Chat Lock” which allows users to keep certain conversations more private.
This feature lets you lock any conversation, which places it in a special folder that can only be accessed via biometrics, such as a fingerprint or facial scan, or by entering the current password.
It also automatically hides any references to locked chats in the notification feed.
Locking chats seems easy enough. Just tap on the private or group chat name and select the lock option.

Reported by the Engadget page, Thursday (18/5/2023), when you want to read the chat, enter the password or complete the biometric scan.
WhatsApp says it’s a great feature for those who share their phone with family members and want to avoid the snafu when “someone else gets hold of your phone at the exact moment a special chat arrives.”
This new feature also lets you completely lock WhatsApp behind biometric authentication.
The people behind the popular messaging app say they are busy preparing more features for Chat Lock, such as the ability to create custom passwords for each chat and tools to lock chats across multiple devices.
Parent company Meta has been very busy trying to keep WhatsApp safe and reliable, by improving its verification system to keep out would-be fraudsters and adding more options to deal with lost messages.
