WhatsApp is reportedly working on a new “Lock chat” feature for Android beta which will enable users to lock chats and keep them hidden.

This new feature will enhance the users’ privacy as it will help them to lock their most private chats within the chat’s contact or group info, WABetaInfo.

When a chat is locked, it can only be opened by using the user’s fingerprint or passcode, making it almost impossible for anyone else to access the chat.

If someone attempts to access the user’s phone and fails to provide the needed authentication, they will be asked to clear the chat to open it.

Furthermore, WhatsApp is working to provide users with 15 new duration options to select from regarding disappearing messages.

Disappearing messages is a WhatsApp privacy, by which you can set a message to disappear 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days after the message is sent.

According to WABetaInfo, the new durations are in addition to the existing ones.
