WhatsApp Introduces ‘View Once’ Messages for Increased Privacy

WhatsApp launched a much-needed privacy feature: disappearing messages, in November 2020. While the functionality was originally restricted to just one choice (disappearing after 7 days), WhatsApp eventually enhanced it to enable messages to disappear after 24 hours or 90 days.

According to WABetaInfo, the corporation is now working on an extreme version of the vanishing message – a message that can only be read once before disappearing for both the sender and the receiver.
