WhatsApp has unveiled its latest feature called Chat Lock. This new feature enables users to safeguard their most personal and sensitive chats by adding an extra layer of security.

With Chat Lock, conversations can be placed in a separate folder that can only be accessed through the device’s password or biometric authentication, such as fingerprint recognition. Additionally, this feature ensures that the contents of locked chats remain hidden in notification previews.

This innovative addition to WhatsApp’s arsenal is aimed at individuals who occasionally share their devices with family members or encounter situations where someone else temporarily handles their phone precisely when confidential conversations occur.

Here’s how to lock a chat on WhatsApp:

  1. Open the WhatsApp app.
  2. Tap the name of a person or group chat.
  3. Select Lock.

Here’s how to reveal your locked chats on WhatsApp:
