WhatsApp appears to be working on improving its chat lock feature, which is said to be in development for the web version of the popular messaging application. Users can already lock specific chats behind a secret code on WhatsApp for iOS and Android. This is a feature that can improve user privacy on the platform. According to details shared by the feature tracker, the service is expected to offer the same features to WhatsApp web users.

The secret code for the recently released locked chat feature, discovered by feature tracker WABetaInfo in the latest version of WhatsApp Web, will soon make its way to the web client. This feature is expected to improve privacy for WhatsApp users and is currently under development, so even beta testers won’t be able to try it out in the latest version.

The feature is expected to work in the same way as the feature available on WhatsApp for Android and iOS. This allows users to lock and hide some chats from the main chat list behind a secret code. This code can be an emoji, a word with special characters, or a phrase. Users can then enter the same secret code to display the locked and hidden chat list.

This feature allows WhatsApp users to protect some of their chats from prying eyes on shared laptops or desktop computers that are accessible to more than one user. Similar to WhatsApp’s chat lock feature for iOS and Android that launched last November, these chats will only be visible if you’ve entered the secret code correctly.

On the mobile version of WhatsApp, locked chats are visible to users until the app is open after the secret code is revealed. When you reopen the app, your chat will be hidden again and you’ll need to enter your secret code again. Users can also disable the secret code feature and revert to the old chat lock feature that requires biometric authentication.
