Like to keep private chats truly private? WhatsApp has announced a new feature that will help you do so.

Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, took to Facebook to announce the newest update of the social media messaging platform.

The application will now make chats completely private by allowing users to keep chats password protected.

WhatsApp has limited the ability to edit messages on all three platforms — iOS, Android, and Web — to 15 minutes. Apple also applies the same time limit on texts sent via the Messages app. However, while you can only edit an iMessage text up to five times, WhatsApp does not appear to have any limit on the number of times a message can be modified, within the time limit.

How to edit a message in WhatsApp
  • Send a message to a contact or group chat.
  • Within 15 minutes of first sending it, right-click on the message in the thread.
  • Click on Edit message.
  • Edit the message contents and confirm.

According to Zuckerberg, these chats will be hidden in a password protected folder, and won’t appear with the rest of your chats.

Notifications from password-protected chats will not display any message content or even the sender.

Earlier reports said that Truecaller will soon start making its caller identification service available over WhatsApp and other messaging apps to help users spot potential spam calls over the internet.

The feature, currently in beta phase, will be rolled out globally later in May, Truecaller Chief Executive Alan Mamedi said.
