According to a recent report, the Facebook-owned messaging service has launched a new function to aid users in maintaining their safety.
According to a WABetaInfo report, WhatsApp is developing a new feature that would let users password-protect their desktop.
After enabling the functionality, a password will be needed each time a user wants to access the messaging app. It is important to note that the functionality is optional and that the user must enable it.
According to the article, because WhatsApp always saves passwords locally, user-set passwords won't be shared with WhatsApp.
You must re-login using the multi-device QR code if you forget or lose your password.
Currently in beta, the feature is not accessible to all users. Due to the feature's ongoing development, WhatsApp has not yet made any formal announcements regarding it.
However, it is anticipated that the business would soon disclose the feature to the general public.
