WhatsApp’s New Screen-Lock Feature is Out

In an ongoing effort to bolster user privacy, WhatsApp has taken a crucial step by introducing the long-awaited Screen Lock feature for its web version for beta users. This new addition is designed to provide users with the ability to thwart unauthorized access to their WhatsApp conversations, ensuring the utmost confidentiality.

The Screen Lock feature empowers users to lock the app with a screen lock, significantly minimizing the risk of unauthorized individuals gaining access to their messages.

Once activated, users will be prompted to set up a password for the Screen Lock feature. Subsequently, this password must be entered each time the app is accessed to view notifications and chats. This extra layer of security adds an additional shield against potential breaches. The Screen Lock feature is currently accessible in the WhatsApp Beta 2.2333.11 version for the web.
