WhatsApp is set to roll out a new feature that will ensure the same privacy settings on all linked devices. The feature, which will be included in an upcoming system update, will automatically synchronize blocked contacts across all devices, making it easier for users to protect their privacy and streamline their experience.
This latest addition to the platform follows the introduction of chat blocking security features in October, which allowed users to move conversations to a password-protected or biometric data folder. WhatsApp has offered contact blocking for years, with options to delete or maintain conversations with blocked users, as well as report them for harmful content or spam. This new feature is reversible, allowing users to unblock contacts whenever they need to do so.
With these new changes, WhatsApp continues to prioritize user privacy and convenience. The platform’s multi-device option has been available since April of last year, enabling users to use the same account on up to four devices at once. As technology continues to evolve, WhatsApp remains committed to providing its users with the best possible tools for secure communication and organization.
