Whatsapp will soon create a feature that will allow you to block your private conversations.

There’s something new on Whatsapp. The messaging service will soon create a new feature that will further protect your conversations. Its name: “Chat Blocker”.

“We think this feature will be ideal if you share your phone with a family member or when someone else is using your phone at the exact moment you receive a special message,” explains the Whatsapp blog.

Operation will be very simple. To block a conversation, simply press on the name of a person or group and select the block option. The chat will appear in a separate tab from other conversations, and notifications for that chat will be hidden. A password or fingerprint will be required to access it. Also, photos from this conversation will no longer automatically save to your phone’s photo gallery.
