WhatsApp can now hide your IP address during calls

The latest version of WhatsApp for Android and iOS now supports hiding your IP address. The feature will hide your IP address from the other party on your call through WhatsApp servers and your real-world location. WhatsApp is also adding another new privacy feature which allows users to silence unknown callers. This feature will block even more sophisticated cyber-attacks on users’ data.
