The conversations we hold on WhatsApp will soon be very safe . The company works on a new integrity feature that prevents both us and the recipient of our messages from capturing screenshots of the conversations.
The feature will arrive in the next few weeks on mobile phones with the Android operating system, which is published by the website specialized in WABetaInfo messenger. At least it is not clear whether the technical features of iOS, the operating system for the iPhone, would allow to implement a similar technology.
Screen protectors of WhatsApp are automatically activated when we add our fingerprint to the application . This action has recently been announced as an added security layer to keep our conversations safe.
WhatsApp cannot detect if screenshots are taken with its computer application.
It is not clear how the system works when calls are viewed through WhatsApp's web client, either on a computer or on a tablet. WhatsApp cannot detect in such cases if the user takes screenshots . Nor would it in any case block the physical capture of photographs of the screen with a camera for obvious reasons.
This type of movement should be considered better as security and privacy law that allows us to protect on different put our conversations. None of them is a perfect wall, but as a whole they create various obstacles for peeking relatives, jealousy couples or gossip.
