Goodbye Screenshots: WhatsApp’s Big Change Coming Soon

WhatsApp, the world’s most popular messaging app owned by Meta, is moving forward with significant changes in privacy and security. This is especially relevant following the implementation of the Digital Markets Act (DMA) in March.

A few months ago, in February, WhatsApp had already teased this new feature in the beta version for Android, according to WABetaInfo. Now, the platform is going a step further to protect users’ data and especially their images.

The new update, version for WhatsApp on iOS, will prevent users from taking screenshots of other people’s profile pictures. If you try to do so, the app will show a message saying: «This action has been blocked to protect everyone’s privacy.»

Once this version is fully rolled out, no one will be able to take screenshots of profile pictures on the iOS app. For now, the only exception is WhatsApp Web from a computer. It is expected that Meta’s developers will also incorporate this feature in upcoming versions.

So, if you’re someone who likes to take screenshots, get ready for this new WhatsApp change. The privacy of profile pictures will be more protected than ever.
