Whatsapp is no doubt the most popular messenger service app in the world because of its amazing features. Whatsapp is our first choice to chat with our loved ones. And what about the personal or private information discussed on WhatsApp? How do we secure or hide our private information from others? No doubt that WhatsApp chats are end-to-end encrypted which means your conversation or chats can only be viewed by you and the person you are conversing with. But this particular feature doesn’t work if you have interfering roommates. So it was necessary to check out how to hide WhatsApp chats permanently.
How To Hide WhatsApp Chats Permanently With Archived Feature
There is an alternative to archive chats until you want them again. But it is the matter of time that when you receive a message on the archived chat, it will directly appear on the top of the screen which is not good.
Admiringly, WhatsApp’s modern update has introduced an innovative feature of “Archived Chats” in the main settings menu that allows you to keep those private conversations archived regardless of whether recent messages are received or not. Earlier we have also seen an update of WhatsApp’s “Disappearing Messages” feature. Follow these simple steps below.
