WhatsApp working on screenshot blocking for View Once messages

09 August 2022
That is coming soon. Two features are coming later this month - the option to leave groups silently and to hide your online status from some users.

Sort by:

These days, everyone is made admin in whatsapp groups, so you would still be notifying everyone silently while leaving.. LOL

    All this once view stuff is a joke. Privacy means I should have complete control over everything leaving and coming to my device. When a photo or message comes into my phone. I'm the one who decides when and how it gets deleted, not the person who sends it.

    Just lol

        What about iphone screen recorder?

          when people have another method to bypass screenshot block from View Once.

          - use your backup phone
          - snap it with camera
          - done.

          the privacy matter was a "joke"

            Cah Nglayab, 10 Aug 2022Don't trust random people, be clever, even Chinese peo... moreSo what? I just use Whatsapp to send messages to each other. Even if they copy, sell those images or text. So be it.

            But i never get spammed or scammed on Whatsapp, only sometimes from single users. Their procedure of vetting business in their API is top notch.

            But Telegram is fill with all those crap. Out of the blue, some people / business / group in telegram will add tons of unknown users.. and spam their stocks winner.. or what ever.

            Based on the behaviour, I think Telegram is the bad one here, selling your info to other people so they can scam / spam you. Unlike Whatsapp better.

              They should also allow whatsapp registration on different devices at the same time, not being tied to only one device for every phone number.

                  What sort of privacy is it to not allow WhatsApp users take screenshots of images they have been sent but Suckermountain can look at them and sell them whenever he desires?

                      "WhatsApp regulate their user" then explain why they are so many features that can be used for cheating? And why on hell is the terms of privacy are like disrespecting Asia and Africa users?

                                Hey look even more special features for cheaters and other shady people!

                                Great job Meta!

                                  Uhh, a little too late, people wouldn't use it now.

                                    Then people will just do the screen shot through another phones camera. So yeah, useless. We do that on personal stuff that has been blocked the same way.

                                      But surely you have to give them access to some part of your phone to enable them to do this. Whatsapp literally wants access to everything on your device, people should stop using this along with other facebook products. They are literally not good for you
