San Francisco: WhatsApp offers another option to keep conversations secret, called auto-delete. This option allows you to have the option of 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days and the message will be deleted after this period.
WhatsApp has announced that users can now use the new option for all new conversations. Activating it automatically deletes messages or long threads within its allotted time. This feature can also be introduced on specific WhatsApp groups, “WhatsApp said in a statement.
Currently there are three times that you can choose according to your choice. It should be noted that WhatsApp’s top priority has always been to make contacts and conversations safer. In addition, due to the ownership of the former Facebook and the current meta company, WhatsApp is also being considered to make contact with Instagram possible. However, Meta is also working on full E2E encryption, which will be fully implemented by 2023.
There is also pressure from European countries in particular to secure data on meta, and this is probably why the delete option has been introduced.
