In the last few hours, various sites in social networks and web portals have published information in which they indicate that WhatsApp will now warn when a user takes a screenshot of a conversation. However, this information is not yet confirmed by an official source and so far there is no evidence to confirm that the courier service works in a similar position.
However, it is possible that there is a new alternative to avoid the screen shots of the chats. According to the WaBetaInfo site, which publishes information about upcoming updates to the messaging service, WhatsApp prevents the recording of messages if they are fingerprint protected, an option that is not yet available on the platform.
At the beginning of January, this specialized site announced that the application will add a new fingerprint authentication feature to provide more protection and privacy within the platform. That is, the messages are blocked once and can only be opened with their fingerprint. Now, according to a new publication, when this authentication function is activated, the screenshots of the calls are blocked.
WaBetaInfo points out that both options are available in the beta version of WhatsApp, but it is not yet known whether they will be officially released to the public.
