You can’t take screenshots on WhatsApp anymore.
An update to the well-known texting service WhatsApp will destroy friendships. The platform will forbid capturing screenshots or recordings of communications that can be opened only once in order to improve security in the application and ensure better protection of personal data. This will stop screen recording from being used to capture sensitive data or images. Here are the details.
You Can’t take screenshots when WhatsApp “View once” feature is active
Privacy-focused features are beginning to roll out to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s chat platforms, which he first announced in August. The Android version of WhatsApp is now at version 188.8.131.52. The most well-liked of these is still being tested. This version states that saving screenshots and videos of media marked as “View once” will not be possible.
WhatsApp will notify you when you attempt to save media with “View once” selected, saying “Cannot capture screenshots due to security rules.” Users’ reactions to this adjustment, which was being tested among beta users, were conflicting.
The information provided by WABetaInfo indicates that third-party applications can be used to take screenshots or record videos. But it was obvious that the image or video that was captured was black. It is important to keep in mind, though, that the other party is not informed even if you attempt to snap a screenshot.
A secondary phone or tablet can be used to take a photo or a video as a traditional technique. Additionally, we believe that users of WhatsApp Web can employ recording apps to get around this security safeguard. When this feature will be included in the stable version is not yet known. The Android beta of WhatsApp now has access to it.
