In the latest version of WhatsApp there are notable improvements in user privacy. WhatsApp is working on new ways to protect your privacy. In addition to end-to-end encryption, more layers of privacy have been added such as chat blocking to protect sensitive chats with a password, temporary messages disappearing, blocking screenshots for single viewing, and the ability to keep your internet presence private.
In the latest version, two more features have been added to this ever-growing list: muting calls from strangers and quick privacy check, which are now available to users.
Mute calls from strangers in WhatsApp
Muting calls from strangers is designed to give you more privacy and control over your incoming calls. It allows you to automatically remove spam, scams and calls from unknown people to increase protection. These calls will not ring on your phone, but they will be recorded in the call list, in case any turn out to be from someone important.
To spread the information, the privacy quick check has been incorporated, which allows you to make sure that you know all the protection options in WhatsApp. This step-by-step feature guides you through important privacy options to help you choose the right level of protection, all in one place. Select “Start Review” in your privacy settings to see various levels of privacy that strengthen the security of your messages, calls, and personal information.
