Screenshots are one of the most used resources by smartphone users when they want to save any element they see on screen (photos, text, video…) to store or share it for different reasons.
Whatsapp prepares an imminent change that will prevent those captures whenever the new fingerprint protection system is used. This is what WABetaInfo, the website specialized in filtering all the new features of the application, says.
Any user who chooses to protect his chats with fingerprint will not be able to make screenshots in Whatsapp. “When the authentication function is enabled, which requires the fingerprint to open Whatsapp, the chat screenshots are blocked”, is detailed in the first filtered description of this biometric security feature.
Among other new features, Whatsapp is already working on improvements to edit photos, share files and other multimedia features, as well as new stickers.
