WhatsApp is rolling out screenshot blocking for viewing images and videos available to some beta testers. We clarify that the new version is in test mode and only applies to images and videos that can be viewed once, but will soon be implemented for the general public.

Although WhatsApp offers a lot of security and privacy features, the bad guys are still looking for loopholes so it is also important to protect our WhatsApp account. We recommend that you activate two-step verification, which will allow you to protect your account. As long as two-step verification is active, even if someone manages to steal the 6-digit PIN, they won’t be able to access your account because they’ll be missing the other PIN you’ve configured in two-step verification. To activate it, follow these steps:

  1. in the card CHATStap the 3 dots in the upper right corner More possibilities > settings
  2. press Account > Two-step verification
  3. Activate and set the code and email of your choice.
