Whatsapp will Introduce Conversation lock with a Passcode

 

New evidence of even more security coming to WhatsApp has surfaced. New strings for the app suggest we’re getting conversation passcodes.

 
Aside being a very popular messaging app, one other thing WhatsApp is really known for is that extra attention the Facebook owned app gives to security and privacy. In a bid to further increase users privacy, the company went further to introduce an end to end encryption in April of this year.

But even with the whole end to end encryption, it does very little in stopping people from reading your conversation as long as they have access to your Smartphone. But this might soon change as the company may be introducing a 6 digit pass code option in the nearest future.

We’re not sure on the details as the feature has yet to be implemented. There’s no indication on whether the passcode will apply to all your conversations or if you can have different codes for different conversations.
Apparently, some details were spotted by “android authority” as part of a text translation program for WhatsApp, to convert strings from English into Dutch. Phrases to be translated include “Enter the current six-digit passcode:“, “Passcodes don’t match. Try again.“, and “Enter a recovery email address“, And all this really makes indication that a pass code option might be introduced soon.

Also there is a line that suggests an optional recovery e-mail incase a user can’t gain access to the WhatsApp app due to wrong pass code.

This new feature is still being tested and hasn’t been made official yet. So we don’t really know how soon this feature will be rolled out. Whenever this happens, it will further increase the security and privacy that WhatsApp is known for. Fingers crossed it won’t take long to get this feature inside the app.
