WhatsApp, the most famous and used instant messaging app in the world, would be implementing some new features regarding the platform’s much-talked about privacy. According to the well-known WABetainfo site, WhatsApp is updating some old settings for both iOS and Android. The novelty concerns the “last access”, that is the function that allows you to see at what time a particular user entered the app for the last time. Currently the privacy settings of this feature include 3 possibilities: “all”, “my contacts” and “none”.
WhatsApp: you can choose who to show “the last access” However, a fourth option will soon be added which will read “My contacts except …”. This will make the function more flexible and the user can choose to hide data from specific contacts. On the other hand, however, the price to pay remains the same: if the user decides to hide the last access to a person, consequently he will not be able to see the last access of the latter.
WhatsApp could expand this possibility of privacy also with regard to the profile image and information (bio). These are updates that are still under development but that we may soon see on our devices. In this period the Facebook-owned messaging app continues to work to offer new features to its users, both for privacy issues and for competition with Telegram.
