WhatsApp Upgrades Feature That Makes Messages Disappear


WhatsApp users can now turn on the disappearing messages tool by default to automatically delete conversations after a set period of time. While the feature was introduced earlier this year, WhatsApp has now expanded disappearing messages by allowing you to switch it on by default for all chats, alongside more changes. You can change the expiration timer to 24 hours, 7 days or 90 days.

However, its new privacy policy has been a source of contention with users, giving WhatsApp the ability to read messages without your consent. While this expanded feature gives you greater control for certain chats, it could encourage abusers to use the app to better hide any conversations that could bring attention to law enforcement.
