Official! WhatsApp Users Can No Longer Take Screenshots of Profile Photos

In February 2024, WhatsApp tested a new privacy feature in the beta version to help protect user profile photos from criminal acts.

Now this feature has been officially rolled out to the regular version of WhatsApp, namely the ability to prevent users from taking screenshots or screenshots of profile photos.

This will provide better security for users and greater control over who can access their content.

In beta testing, attempts to take a screenshot would give a black screen along with the words ‘unable to take screenshot due to app restrictions.

Now on the stable version of WhatsApp, users who want to make this effort will get the same message.

When TechViral tries to take a screenshot of the profile photo, WhatsApp does not display a black screen but still gives a pop-up saying ‘This application does not allow screenshots’

We also noted that while we couldn’t screenshot individual profile pictures, when we tried to take a profile picture in a group chat, WhatsApp still allowed it to be taken. However, to take profile photos of each member of the WhatsApp group, permission is not given.

While this feature was launched, there is no further detailed information such as whether this feature is optional or not so there is no way to disable it if users still allow other people to take screenshots of their profile picture.

This is not the first feature to help protect user privacy on WhatsApp, previously there were options such as changing profile photo privacy settings, one-view media, and status privacy settings.

However, this is a step forward in helping provide users with a more secure messaging app, and it’s likely that more users will start seeing this feature on their devices in the coming weeks.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra was photographed from outer space, this is the result

Samsung shows off the capabilities of the Galaxy S24 Ultra camera in a unique way. The latest flagship cellphone from Samsung was flown into the stratosphere to take photos from extreme heights.

Techviral reports Samsung installed four Galaxy S24 Ultras into specially designed carbon fiber cages, which were then placed in four different helium-powered balloons.

These balloons were flown from the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains to capture the diverse landscape of the west coast of the United States.

The balloons carried the Galaxy S24 Ultra to a height of 120,000 feet or around 36 km. Technically, the Galaxy S24 Ultra does not reach outer space, the limit of which is 100 km, but the distance reached is quite high because you can already see the curvature or curvature of the Earth.

The hydrogen that powered the balloons gradually ran out, and after a few days the four Galaxy S24 Ultra slowly descended to Earth with the help of a parachute, as quoted from Android Authority, Thursday (7/3/2024).

Currently, The Samsung Galaxy S24 Cellphone Camera Is The Best

During several days in the stratosphere, the Galaxy S24 Ultra took more than 150 photos using the ultrawide camera and main camera at 1x, 3x and 5x zoom. The resulting photos can be seen below:

The Galaxy S24 Ultra camera managed to clearly capture the darkness of outer space and the curvature of the Earth. This cellphone can also take photos of various geographic features on the Earth’s surface, such as rivers, canyons and snow-covered mountains.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra is the most expensive and most sophisticated cellphone in the latest Galaxy S line. This cellphone is equipped with a 200 MP main camera and optical zoom of up to 5x.

The Galaxy S24 Ultra also supports Space Zoom 100x which has been part of the Galaxy S line since it was first introduced on the Galaxy S20 Ultra. If this feature is usually used to photograph the Moon, this time the Galaxy S24 Ultra was used to photograph the Earth from a height.

WhatsApp Will Sync Locked Chats Across Devices

The WhatsApp messaging platform, which has many users, is now reportedly working on a new security feature to further strengthen its users’ privacy.

This new feature will synchronize chat keys across all devices connected to the user’s account as reported by TechViral from Gizmochina.

Simply put, if a user decides to lock a conversation on a smartphone, then the lock will also be applied to the same conversation when accessed via WhatsApp on a computer, tablet or other connected device.

This update was first noticed by WABetaInfo, a reliable source for WhatsApp updates. This was discovered in the latest WhatsApp beta update for Android 2.24.4.14, which is available for download to all registered beta testers via the Google Play Store.

WhatsApp introduced the ability to lock certain chats last year. They then introduced another feature called Secret Lock, which allows users to set a unique password that is different from their device password.

This password hides the locked chat folder, making it invisible to anyone who doesn’t know the code.

However, the downside of this feature is that it is a device-specific setting. This means that these keys must be set separately on each of your computer and mobile devices and are not automatically synced.

The upcoming changes will simplify this process, and automatically expand users’ security options across all platforms where WA is used.

Additionally, WhatsApp recently confirmed that they will allow cross-platform messaging through their platform. This means users will be able to send messages between WhatsApp, Telegram, or Signal, and vice versa. However, this feature will likely only be available in Europe.

 

Comparison of Oppo Find N3 Flip and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

Even though it has been around for a long time, not many cellphone manufacturers are working on folding screen cellphones. For example, in folding screen phones with clamshell models currently, there are only two big names playing, namely Oppo and Samsung.

From Oppo, the newest variant is the Find N3 Flip, while from Samsung the newest is the Galaxy Z Flip 5. What is the comparison between these two folding screen phones? Come on, take a look at the following review.

Design

In terms of dimensions, at first glance, these two phones look similar. However, if you look in more detail, the Z Flip 5 is indeed smaller and lighter than the N3 Flip, there isn’t much of a difference. The thickness of the Z Flip 5 when closed is 15.1mm and 6.9 mm when open.

Meanwhile, the N3 Flip is 7.8 mm thick when opened and 16.5 mm when closed. The weight is 9 grams apart, namely the Z Flip 5 is lighter at 187 grams.

Then the outer screen. Oppo and Samsung carry different styles in this section. Oppo uses a screen with a conventional shape, with a 3.26 inch AMOLED panel. Meanwhile, Samsung “finished” the outside with a 3.4 inch screen, except for the area for the camera module.

The N3 Flip’s smaller screen makes it more comfortable to operate with one hand. Then the interface feels more interactive and supports more applications that can be operated directly from the outside. Even though Samsung does provide the Good Lock application to bring more applications to the external screen, the setup process is quite complicated.

Hinge

Well, this hinge can be said to be one of the most important components of a folding cellphone. And, Oppo claims that the Flexion Hinge on the N3 Flip is made of stainless steel material, and is promised to be strong when opened and closed up to one million times. Meanwhile, Samsung only promises that the Z Flip 5’s hinge will last 200 thousand times opening and closing.

Flexion Hinge N3 Flip also creates screen crease marks that are less visible than on the Z Flip 5. The crease marks are of course still visible, but they are clearly more minimal. Oh yes, both the N3 Flip and Z Flip 5 screens can be closed tightly without any gaps.

Screen

The N3 Flip uses a 6.8 inch LTPO AMOLED panel, slightly larger than the Z Flip 5 which uses a 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X. Both have FHD+, 120Hz and HDR10+ resolution. However, on paper, this Samsung screen has a higher brightness level, namely 1,750 nits compared to 1,600 nits on the Oppo.

System on a chip and battery

The system on a chip (SoC), or commonly referred to as the processor, used by these two cellphones comes from different manufacturers. Samsung chose Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from Qualcomm, while Oppo chose Dimensity 9200 from MediaTek.

Both use 4nm architecture, LPDDR5X RAM, and UFS 4.0 storage. The N3 Flip RAM has a capacity of 12GB, while the Z Flip 5 only has 8GB. How’s the performance? From Tech Viral testing, the AnTuTu Find N3 Flip score reached one million. So, even though it is a folding screen cellphone, its performance is still fast and you can even play heavy games like Genshin Impact smoothly. And of course, you can get through daily use without slowing down, with satisfactory battery life.

In the battery sector, the N3 Flip is quite superior because it has a larger capacity battery and greater charging support. Namely 3,700 mAh versus 4,300 mAh, and 25W charger versus 44W. However, the Z Flip 5 supports wireless charging up to 15W and reverse wireless charging 4.5W. Another advantage of Oppo is that it includes a charging adapter that is much larger than the 65Watt power the device receives.

Camera

In this section, it must be admitted that Oppo has quite a big advantage. The three cameras on the N3 Flip were designed by Hasselblad, and consist of a main camera with a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS, a 48MP ultrawide camera with a 114 degree field of view, and a 32MP portrait camera with 2x optical zoom. Then the selfie camera is 32MP.

Meanwhile, the Z Flip 5 still has a camera system similar to the previous Z Flip series. Namely a pair of 12MP cameras on the back for the main camera (with OIS) and ultrawide, as well as a 10MP selfie camera.

With relatively the same price, namely IDR 15,999,000 (12GB/256 variant on the Find N3 Flip and 8GB/256GB on the Galaxy Z Flip 5), these two cellphones have their own advantages and disadvantages. However, we think the Find N3 Flip provides a more enjoyable user experience.

Yes, in terms of the SoC used, the Z Flip 5 benchmark results are slightly superior, but that doesn’t mean the Find N3 Flip is a slower cellphone. The reason is, in the tests we carried out, Genshin Impact with high settings and a frame rate of 60 could be run smoothly by the Find N3 Flip. Oh yes, the battery is bigger and charging is also faster.

Galaxy S24 Ultra specifications

Samsung changes the appearance of the Galaxy S24 screen. Now it is made flat, no longer with curved edges like the Galaxy S23. Even so, the size is still 6.8 inches with QHD+ resolution, uses a Dynamic AMOLED panel with a refresh rate of 1-120 Hz and supports Vision Booster.

LPDDR5x 12 RAM is embedded in it which can be enlarged with the RAM Plus feature. Meanwhile, the internal memory has a capacity of up to 1 TB, UFS 4.0 type.

To pamper gamers, Samsung has expanded the vapor chamber area on the Galaxy S24 Ultra. Now the size is 1.9 larger so it can distribute heat better, making the device body cooler.

Talking about photography, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is equipped with four cameras on the back. The main camera is 200 MP equipped with OIS, accompanied by a 12 MP ultra-wide, a 50 MP periscope telephoto camera with 5x zoom capability, and a 10 MP telephoto camera with 3x zoom. While the front camera is 12 MP.

This Unique Casing Brings the iPhone a BlackBerry Flavor

The days when the BlackBerry was the dream smartphone are long gone, but perhaps some still miss it. Well, a new case for the iPhone brings one of BlackBerry’s most beloved features, namely a physical keyboard.

It’s called Clicks, created by a company founded by two famous content creators, namely Michael Fisher (MrMobile) and Kevin Michaluk (CrackBerry Kevin). Clicks is basically a physical keyboard for the iPhone.

Clicks can be ordered for USD 139 for the standard iPhone and USD 159 for the larger iPhone. This Clicks keyboard has a bold design. The flagship color, BumbleBee, is bright yellow which contrasts nicely with the black keyboard. The casing is made of silicone to make it easier to insert the iPhone and also easy to hold.

Clicks doesn’t require Bluetooth or batteries to operate, relying solely on iPhone power. Indeed, this iPhone casing makes the device very tall like a remote. The good news, quoted by Tech Viral from CNN, Friday (12/1/2024), is that the button is easy to click and is large enough to be easy to press.

The keyboard position is a bit odd. Users have to slide their hands down slightly to put it on. However, it is likely that users will eventually get used to it.

By using a physical keyboard, users will get more screen space. That’s because when it’s plugged in, iOS knows not to show the virtual keyboard when tapping the typeable area.

Presumably, this case is suitable for those who are big fans of physical keyboards and want one on their iPhone. If you miss the days of texting with a BlackBerry keyboard or aren’t a fan of virtual keyboards, this case might be for you.
