Three Ways to Protect WhatsApp 

WhatsApp can protect itself from being hacked. WhatsApp has given users three ways to keep their accounts safe and said that the number of people who can follow them will prevent them from being hacked.

Through a series of tweets on Twitter, WhatsApp told users that if they use two-step verification, end-to-end encryption, and block/report, the account will always be under their control. The company said the account’s first layer of protection is two-step verification, a feature that requires entering a secret code to use the account on another phone.

Another feature of WhatsApp’s security feature is end-to-end encryption, whereby no one but the user can see the messages sent by one user to another friend. The last and main layer of WhatsApp security is called Kombo, which allows the user to report or block any suspicious number. By following all these steps, the user will be able to use WhatsApp without fear.

WhatsApp, on the other hand, has started testing a feature to stop recording sent videos, photos, and audio files for one-time viewing. Under the said feature, any user will no longer be able to take a screenshot or record any ‘Single View’ image, video, or audio file.

Under this feature, if a person tries to take a screenshot of the received ‘Single View’ video, audio, and image, they will receive a notification instead of the screenshot, informing them that under the security features they cannot take a screenshot.
