The era of taking screenshots on WhatsApp is over!


WhatsApp Android Beta Working on a new feature for WhatsApp may restrict taking screenshots on images and videos with a future update.

On August 9, 2022, Mark Zuckerberg announced on Facebook three new privacy features that will come in WhatsApp’s new update: past group participants, choosing who can see when you’re online on WhatsApp, and screenshot blocking.

Screenshot blocking will greatly protect users when they send images and videos using the view once method. In this context, screenshots cannot be taken from the posts selected with the view once option.

This feature was being developed in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS, but it was announced today that it will also be available in the Android app. As you can see in the screenshot above, WhatsApp is working on a new presentation screen that introduces the new version of the skin. With this new version, once you send images and videos with view, it will be impossible to take screenshots. Obviously, the buyer can take pictures using a second phone or camera, so full protection is not possible, but still a good method of protection for the moment.

Once the recipient takes a screenshot to view images and videos, they will see that the screenshot is blocked automatically. However, no notification will be sent to the sender.
