Every WhatsApp user needs to change three settings for 2022 right now. It’s a new year, so make sure your WhatsApp is in the best possible state for 2022. There are loads of ways to boost your WhatsApp privacy and security – but we’ve chosen three of the most important.
Locking your WhatsApp separately to your iPhone is very important.
It means people who are using your phone can’t read your texts.
To set this up you need to head to your WhatsApp settings.
Then click “Account” and then “Privacy”.
You’ll also be able to pick a duration time for when the ID is required again.
Now whenever you go to open the app, it’ll ask you for your prints or a picture of your face to check it’s really you reading your private chats.
You can still read and quick reply to messages in your notification window, so the tool isn’t foolproof.
You can always disable all message previews in your iPhone settings.
WhatsApp self-deleting texts
WhatsApp also has a recently-added feature that will automatically self-destruct new texts after a day.
You can set Disappearing Messages to automatically turn on for all new chats – without affecting existing conversations.
And two new durations have been added for Disappearing Messages, 24 hours and 90 days.
So now you can choose from four options in total: 24 hours, 7 days, 90 days or Off.
This feature only rolled out a few weeks ago, so make sure you’ve updated WhatsApp to its latest version. eoooooo
