News Tech: Following its testing on iOS, Meta-owned WhatsApp has begun testing screenshot blocking on Android beta, which will stop users from taking screenshots of previously seen images and videos. Recently, three new privacy features for WhatsApp were unveiled by Meta’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. These features provide users more control over their discussions and additional security measures when communicating. One of those features, screenshot blocking, was being worked on in the WhatsApp beta for iOS but has not yet been discovered in the WhatsApp beta for Android.
“WhatsApp is working on a new presentation screen that introduces the new version of view once: thanks to this new version, it is impossible to take screenshots to view once images and videos,” the website said on Thursday. When the recipient tries to take a screenshot to view once images and videos, the screenshot will be automatically blocked but the sender will not receive any notification. However, a user can still take a photo by using a secondary phone or camera.
