WhatsApp beta tests screenshot lock on single view photos

WhatsApp beta is getting a new update this Tuesday that brings a feature much requested by users: lock screenshot on single view photos or videos .

The novelty is being distributed in version, and it is part of a set of privacy features promised by Mark Zuckerberg.

After the update, the user will always get a black screen when taking a screenshot. An example you can see below:

Commenting on the matter, the folks at WABetaInfo reinforce some important points of the new feature:

  • When someone takes a screenshot, the owner of the photo is not notified, but the attempt to take a screenshot is immediately blocked.
  • Attempting to record the screen when opening a single-view photo is also blocked by default.
  • You can still take screenshots of conversations, even if they contain some messages that disappear , since the new feature is only limited to images and videos.
  • You cannot forward, export or save single-view images or videos.
  • The recipient can still take a photo using a secondary mobile device, so you should always be careful when sending compromising content.

For now, the novelty is in testing with a small number of users within the beta program, but it is likely that the new feature will start to be activated for everyone within the next few days.
