WhatsApp has rolled out a crucial security feature, which will let you block other people with access to your phone, from reading your messages.
Launched last week, this is how you can enable it on the iPhone. To enable the said feature, users must make sure that they have the latest version of the messaging service. Users could check the same by tapping on “settings” and going to “help” option. A screen can be seen below with the version listed on the top – make sure that you have version 2.19.20.However, it must be noted that the additional security feature for Android devices is under development and should be rolled out soon. So far, WhatsApp has only allowed this security feature on Apple devices.
In case, you don’t have the desired version, go to the iOS App Store and update. You will be able to see the version number below “What’s New” in the App store.After you have the latest version of Whatsapp, open the app and go to settings. Tap on the “account” menu option, then go to “privacy” on the new menu.
