NEW FEATURE: From February 5 Onwards, WhatsApp Will Let You Know When Someone Screenshots Your Chat

California – Jan Koum, the CEO of WhatsApp, the biggest and cheapest messaging application has announced that the next upgrade of the application is going to include the option of being notified if someone screenshots your conversation.

This upgrade comes after the majority of users requested the option, especially married couples and the elderly age according to him.“After all these years, we’ve reached the conclusion to add it”, he was quoted.

“The functioning is simple, just like the blue tick.You will have the option activated by default. If it’s checked, you’ll be notified if someone screenshots your conversation, and others will be notified if you screenshot theirs. If it’s unchecked, no one gets notified”, stated Koum.

A high number of users expressed disappointment in relation to this feature and an online poll is still ongoing to determine the more accurate figures.
