CALIFORNIA April 17: In March 2019 WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp is working on an authentication feature for Android that would allow users to natively lock the app using their smartphone’s fingerprint sensor.
Now, a fresh report by the blog suggests that the company is planning to add a functionality to the feature that would block users from taking screenshots in the chats when the feature is enabled.
To put it simply, if you have enabled the authentication feature on your smartphone, you will no longer be able to take screenshots of your chats.
However, same isn’t true for the receiver, which means that they would still be able to save screenshots of your conversation.
The good news is that even if users have enabled the authentication feature on their smartphones, they would be able to respond to messages from the notifications and answer calls on WhatsApp when the app is locked.
This feature, however, is still under development and hence is not available on WhatsApp’s Beta app for Android.
