Silence Unknown Callers and Privacy Checkup: New WhatsApp Privacy Features
At WhatsApp, we understand that your privacy isn’t just a preference; it's a fundamental need. That's why we're pouring our energy into making sure your messages and calls are kept under tight wraps.
Imagine the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your personal and sensitive conversations are protected by end-to-end encryption. It's like having a private conversation in a room filled with people, yet being confident that nobody else can hear you. We've gone even further, adding additional layers of privacy, including the recent Chat Lock feature to guard those extra-sensitive chats with a password, disappearing messages that fade away, screenshot blocking for one-time viewing, and even the ability to keep your online presence a secret.
Now, we've got more exciting news for you. We're unveiling two brand new features, 'Silence Unknown Callers' and 'Privacy Checkup,' both of which are ready for you to use right away.
'Silence Unknown Callers' is a thoughtful little guardian for your phone. It will take care of screening those pesky spam calls, crafty scams, or any calls from unknown numbers, making sure they don't disrupt your day. Worried you might miss something important? Don't be! Those calls will be quietly waiting in your call list, just in case you need to check them.
Alongside that, we're rolling out 'Privacy Checkup.' Think of it as a friendly guide who takes your hand and walks you through the maze of privacy settings on WhatsApp, helping you tailor the perfect level of protection for your unique needs. Just select 'Start checkup' in your Privacy settings, and you'll be led through a journey that will fortify your messages, calls, and personal information.
Why are we so passionate about these features? Because we believe that having a safe space to communicate is essential for human connections. Starting this week, we're encouraging everyone to reach out and check in with friends and family securely via private messages. It's more than a tool; it's an invitation to open up, share, and foster deeper relationships, knowing that you have a space that is truly yours.
So go ahead, explore these new features, and know that we're always working behind the scenes to make your communication experience both pleasurable and safe.
