Whatsapp wants to implement a third blue check for security concerns
Mark Zuckerberg often says his company Meta is always listening to consumers of its technology services. In this case, some of the new features offered by the social network are that in order to offer a more stable service and protect the privacy of users, it could add a third blue check mark when capturing an image in a conversation.
The new measure comes after a few weeks ago, many Whatsapp users complained on social media that the app lacked security methods.
The third blue check mark will appear in the future when you take a screenshot in a group chat. The following notice will appear: âUser (xxx) has taken a screenshot. For your safety, do not provide any personal information, you could be the victim of fraud or extortion. “
The future tool “is intended to provide better control over privacy so that users know that their messages could be shared with third parties,” El ClarÃn magazine explained.
Currently, when there is only one check mark, it means that the message has left our device, when there are two check marks, it means that it has reached the server and has been sent; when they turn blue, it means they have read the message. However, there are still some people who reject the use of blue check marks in chat through WhatsApp settings.
