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.

Twitch Releases New Rules, Can Perverted Content Be Broadcast?

Twitch has just released new rules regarding sexual content. This stems from the popularity of meta topless, which has suddenly gone viral on the platform.

The live streaming activity, which showed almost the entire chest area, certainly received a negative reaction from the audience. So many of them are wondering about Twitch’s views and the rules they apply.

“We received feedback that our policies around sexual content were unclear, so we’ve set clearer boundaries between what is and isn’t permitted on Twitch,” Twitch wrote.

They clarified some major changes. One of them is that now content that deliberately highlights the breasts, buttocks or pelvic area (when wearing clothing) is allowed, as long as it is labeled appropriately.

According to him, accurate content labeling can help viewers have a more satisfying viewing experience. Therefore, now they will activate labeling according to sexual content using the Content Classification Labels (CCL) system.

“We believe that some of the restrictions in our previous policy are no longer necessary. In addition to providing clarity, this update will also reduce the risk of inconsistent enforcement,” Twitch said.

Twitch said that they will now allow the following content, as long as it is “properly labeled”, as compiled Tech Viral from IGN, Friday (15/12/2023).

Some of the restrictions in our previous policy are no longer necessary in Twitch

1.Content that deliberately emphasizes breasts, buttocks, or the pelvic area

2.Fictional works (drawn, animated, or sculpted) depicting female breasts and/or genitals or buttocks in their entirety, regardless of gender

3.Bodywriting on breasts and/or buttocks featuring women regardless of gender

4.An erotic dance involving disrobing or disrobing movements, such as a striptease

5.Popular dances, such as twerking, grinding and pole dancing are now allowed without labels

As explained, this change was motivated by topless content which was currently popular. This content went viral because it was done by a Twitch streamer named Morgpie, who is also a creator on OnlyFans.

Meta Launches Fact Check Feature, Countering Misinformation in Threads

Meta is reportedly planning to add a live fact-checking feature on its social media platform Threads to tackle misinformation content.

Even though the owners of Facebook and Instagram have used third-party fact-checking teams to debunk misinformation and disinformation on both applications, Meta does not have its own fact-checking team on Threads.

“Early next year, our third-party fact-checking partners will be able to review and rate false content on Threads,” Meta said in a statement quoted by Tech Viral Meta explained in an update.

“Currently, when fact checkers rate content as fake on Facebook or Instagram, we extend that fact check rating to similar content on Threads, but fact checkers cannot rate Threads content themselves,” he continued.

Head of Instagram Adam Mosseri also shared a post about the program, although it didn’t provide many details other than revealing that it will be coming next year.

Meta Confirm That They Dont Allow Nude On Threads

“We currently match fact-checker ratings from Facebook or Instagram with Threads, but our goal is for fact-checking partners to have the ability to review and rate misinformation on the app,” Mosseri wrote.

Meta has long faced criticism for allowing misinformation and hate speech to run rampant on its platform, particularly in relation to COVID-19 and during the 2016 and 2020 US presidential elections.

In 2021, Facebook began flagging pages that consistently spread fake news, and officially banned all Instagram accounts, Facebook Pages and Groups associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory. After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Meta established a Special Operations Center to combat miss-information and remove hate speech and content that incites violence.

However, this type of content continues to surge on Facebook and Instagram during the ongoing Israel-Hamas war – even the European Union stepped in to investigate. Meta has taken action in some of these cases.

The key factor here is Threads’ relationship to news. While Threads is making strides to make trending topics more intuitively aggregated, Meta isn’t really pushing the platform as a news and current affairs space.

Back in July Mosseri wrote Politics and headlines will definitely appear in Threads – they also appear on Instagram to some extent – but we won’t do anything to push those verticals.

Notably, certain words have been blocked from Threads searches, with The Washington Post’s site reporting words like “coronavirus,” “vaccine,” “vaccination,” “sex,” “porn,” “nude,” and ” blood”, which was deliberately blocked.

Threads still doesn’t have its own community guidelines; instead the company says that Threads is specifically part of Instagram, so Instagram’s Terms of Use and Instagram’s Community Guidelines also apply to Threads.

However, Threads already has a hate speech problem, as Mashable’s Chase DiBenedetto reported warnings from civil rights groups in July.

At the time, a Meta spokesperson told Mashable and Media Matters for America in a statement, that our industry-leading human review and integrity enforcement tools had been built into Threads. As with all our apps, a hate speech policy applies.
