WHATSAPP is developing a new way to make your most private chats even more secret.
The change will mean selected conversations will be completely invisible to everyone.New setting will make your chats more secure than ever[/caption]
So the chats won’t even be listed among other conversations to arose suspicion from any prying eyes.
And the only way to make them appear is by entering a secret code.
The secret code is completely different to your phone’s PIN so they’ll be more secure than ever.
Leaked screenshots obtained by WABetaInfo show the feature is still in the works.
To reveal the hidden chats, you apparently need to enter the secret code in the search bar.
At the moment, the clever trick is only available to beta testers who get to try out new WhatsApp additions before anyone else.
It’s not clear when – or indeed if – WhatsApp owner Meta intends to release secret codes to the public at large.
During the testing phase they may decide it’s not useful and pull the idea.
So if you’re desperate to try this feature now, you’ll need to become a beta tester.
