Meta added a new feature to WhatsApp that gives users’ private conversations an additional level of protection and privacy. By employing a password or biometric authentication, this new feature enables users to lock specific chats, guaranteeing that their contents are private and inaccessible to unauthorized parties. Along with chat lock, Meta has included additional security features like keeping locked chats in a different folder and obscuring the message’s name and content in alerts until the user authenticates their identity.

  • Update or download WhatsApp: Make sure WhatsApp is installed on your smartphone in the most recent version. If not, download or update the app from your local app store.
  • Access the Specific Chat: Navigate to the chat you wish to lock in WhatsApp. It could be a dialogue between two or more people.
  • Select the profile photo: Tap on the contact or group’s profile image at the top of the screen once you have entered the appropriate conversation.
  • Where to find “Chat Lock”: There is a new option named “Chat Lock” in the profile settings that may be found by scrolling down. It’s right below the menu for disappearing messages.
  • Turn on chat lock: You will be asked to verify your identity when you select the “Chat Lock” option. Chat lock can be activated using your phone’s password or biometric authentication (fingerprint or facial recognition).
  • Successfully Locked: Following successful login, the chat will be locked and future access will call for the same authentication procedure.
