WhatsApp Developing a Disappearing Mode for iOS

Users can begin new chats with disappearing messages on automatically with this feature

WhatsApp for iOS is working on a privacy-focused disappearing mode. This feature is not yet open to the general public, but WABetaInfo provided us with the first look at it.

Today we’re announcing the feature called Disappearing Mode!

If you love privacy, disappearing messages is the feature for you. You can enable it within Contact Info and Group Info, but it can happen that you have to manually enable it when a contact starts a new chat with you.”

When a user activates the Disappearing Mode, new chats will begin with disappearing messages enabled.

When this feature becomes accessible, go to WhatsApp Settings, Privacy, and then enable the Disappearing Mode function.

This function allows the user to delete chat history after reading a post. This is one of the few WhatsApp privacy approaches. For example, the latest contentious privacy policy went into effect on Saturday. As of now, the app will not deactivate users’ accounts, but it will limit their ability to access certain key WhatsApp features over time.

“While the majority of users who have received the new terms of service have accepted them, we appreciate some people haven’t had the chance to do so yet. No accounts will be deleted on May 15 because of this update and no one will lose the functionality of WhatsApp either. We will follow up with reminders to people over the next several weeks.”

Beginning May 15, users may lose access to some WhatsApp features before they approve the new terms. For example, these users would first lose access to the chat list. Then, audio and video calls will stop operating, and the user will no longer receive new message updates on WhatsApp.

Disappearing Mode will be available in a future update for iOS and Android users, but no date has been set.
