Profile Picture Privacy: WhatsApp Set to Block Screenshots in Future Update

Many people care about their privacy and don’t want others to take screenshots of their profile pictures. In this regard, a report suggests that the messaging giant WhatsApp is experimenting with a new feature to prevent the unauthorized capture of profile pictures. The feature is available to both Android and iOS beta users.

The latest update will significantly enhance user privacy by disallowing screenshots of profile photos within the app. Once implemented, users trying to take screenshots of display pictures will be sent a notification informing them that such activities are blocked to protect everyone’s privacy on WhatsApp.

The latest move highlights WhatsApp’s commitment to empowering users with greater control over their personal information. However, a source suggests that the feature may not be able to entirely eradicate the risk of unauthorized image capture, as individuals could still resort to alternative methods for capturing images.

The main purpose of the new feature is to reduce the likelihood of unauthorized screenshots being exploited or distributed without consent.

The latest feature is currently under development and users can expect its launch in an upcoming update.
