Secret code is a unique password
The team of the popular WhatsApp messenger announced the launch of a useful addition to the private chats function. Closed chats have been available since 2023, and now secret codes have been added to them.
As the developers note, thanks to secret codes, private chats have received another level of protection in case someone gains access to your phone or you use the device with someone else.
WhatsApp now has private chats with a secret access code
The secret code is a unique password. It’s different from the one you use to unlock your phone and gives private chats extra security.
Users can also hide the “Private Chats” folder from the general list: it will only be visible after entering the secret code in the search bar. If you do not want to hide conversations, you can leave them in the general chat list. To move a new chat to the closed category, simply press and hold on it. You no longer need to open chat settings.
The distribution of the innovation has already begun and will gradually become available to WhatsApp users around the world.
