WhatsApp users joke new Chat Lock feature is ‘tailored for cheating’
WhatsApp just made getting away with cheating easier and finding out your partner is cheating harder.
The locked chats will be in a protected folder that can only be accessed by passcode or biometrics, such as TouchID or FaceID.
Enabling the feature also means that notifications from these messages won’t appear on the notification screen, hiding the sender and actual message content.
While WhatsApp is known for its end-to-end encrypted message, users are joking that the new privacy feature has “upgraded” cheating.
“Very amazing. Thanks for keeping our relationships safe!” one person commented.
“Awesome, it’s great and useful for cheaters,” another quipped.
“This is so great and wonderful news,” someone wrote. “thanks Mr . Cheating has been upgraded.”
“Good luck and well done mr mark .this is the important feature for more and more divorces and love breakups,” another thanked Zuck.
“Thanks mark, I can now cheat in peace,” a user said.
“Mark working always to make unfaithful boys way less likely to be caught,” one joked.
“We think this feature will be great for people who have reason to share their phones from time to time with a family member or those moments where someone else is holding your phone at the exact moment an extra special chat arrives,” Meta wrote in the blog.
