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.
