How to Use WhatsApp Secret Code

When Will the Feature Be Available?

The secret code feature starts rolling out today. Over the next few months, it will become available worldwide. WhatsApp is excited about adding more features to Chat Lock to help users protect their privacy.

Wrap Up: Improving WhatsApp Privacy Settings

This update shows WhatsApp's commitment to better privacy settings. The Chat Lock with a customizable secret code gives users a powerful tool to keep their conversations private and safe.
