WhatsApp already blocks screenshots of chats that disappear

WhatsApp will not allow users to take screenshots of images and videos that disappear after being viewed once.


WhatsApp has started to block the option to take screenshots of images and videos that are sent only once.

The app is expanding its security options, trying to ensure that users keep their privacy to the fullest in all cases.

A trail of debris

The latest images come from the Southern Astrophysical Research Telescope located in Chile.

In his images, captured from the Andes, you can see how the impact leaves a trail of up to 10 thousand kilometers from the point of collision.

“It’s amazing how clearly we were able to capture the structure and extent of the aftermath in the days after the impact,” says Teddy Kareta, an astronomer at Lowell Observatory who was involved in this observation.

You will no longer be able to take capture in these cases

When the disappearing messages arrived, many users criticized the fact of being able to take a screenshot when viewing (for the only time) the file.

Now, as reported by WaBetaInfo , the messaging service is prohibiting the capture of said images in both the Android and iOS versions.

This tool was first in the beta version of the application, but it will not be deployed on WhatsApp Web yet, because it works in a different way than the mobile version.

WhatsApp ensures privacy

When a person tries to take a screenshot of this type of image that is only seen once, WhatsApp will show a black screen and a message explaining that this action cannot be performed.

If you don’t have this option yet, all you have to do is wait a few days for it to appear on your device.
