WhatsApp: how to block screenshots

Regarding the multimedia, photos and videos that are usually shared on the platform, Meta brought to WhatsApp a feature that it previously tested in private Instagram messages: the impossibility of screenshot for single display messagesthat is, they can only be opened once.

Coming as an added layer of security for view only, the feature will complement an increasingly popular way of sharing photos or files, since a permanent digital record is not required. At least for the time being, the screenshot lock is on trial.
