WhatsApp gives users a new way to protect their privacy

WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta and is used by a lot of people, keeps adding great new features and changes to make the app better for its users.

WaBetaInfo says that the instant messaging app will soon have a tool that lets iOS users check their privacy settings.

The new update, called “Privacy Checkup,” is only available to a few beta testers right now. In the coming weeks, it will be made available to more people.

Users will be able to quickly check their privacy settings by using this tool. Those who install the latest iOS update might be able to see the new ad right in their privacy settings.

If you can see the new banner, it means you can use this tool. The website for tracking apps says, “This section gives users a detailed overview and lets them change different settings.”

Users can choose who to add to groups, and they can also control who they have banned. They can also choose who can see their personal information on WhatsApp, such as their profile picture, the last time they were online, when they were last seen, and what their “about” text says.

“You can also turn on disappearing messages and end-to-end encrypted backups to give your account an extra layer of privacy and security,” it said.

Users who can’t use this tool still have control over their privacy, since this is just an extra way to quickly check their privacy settings. They can also be looked at by hand.
