WhatsApp introduces Chat Lock, a new feature to enhance privacy

Chat Lock allows users to protect their intimate conversations with an additional layer of security

The feature locks a chat thread and moves it out of the inbox into a separate folder

This locked chat folder can only be accessed with the device’s password or biometric data, like a fingerprint

The contents of the locked chat are automatically hidden in notifications

Chat Lock is ideal for those who occasionally share their phones with family members

To lock a chat, users can tap the name of a one-to-one or group chat and select the lock option

To reveal these chats, users can pull down on their inbox and enter their phone password or biometric

WhatsApp plans to add more options for Chat Lock, including locking for companion devices and creating a custom password for chats

The Chat Lock feature is rolling out globally on WhatsApp
