Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg, announcing the new privacy features for WhatsApp, said this would help keep the app “as private and secure as face-to-face conversations”.
Don’t want to be bothered by pesky relatives and their unending forwards on WhatsApp but cannot quit the group out of respect? Mark Zuckerberg has you covered. In a latest WhatsApp update, you can now exit these groups without alerting anyone – silently. The process is pretty much the same except the exit notification does not pop up on the chat.
The widely used and popular app has a few new updates for its two billion users. You can even hide your online status now – like you could hide your last seen – from your friends. And you can also block screenshots on “view once” messages.
Hiding the online status has been under beta testing last month for iOS, according to many reports.
