WhatsApp Privacy

It is quite difficult to have a moment of privacy when it comes to the internet. A lot of people are often heard saying that internet security is a myth. However, the locked chats feature that WhatsApp has offered does have a slight intrigue to it. It can allow people to lock their chats, and it can be either locked with a password or a fingerprint. While the password option is certainly more secure, the fingerprint one is slightly less.

If anyone else gets access to your phone and adds their fingerprint to it, it is bound to let them access any locked chats as well. However, that is the only way the locked chats can be accessed by anyone other than you. To access this feature, simply head to the chat and then to the settings of the chat. Scroll down and you will see the option to lock the chat.
