This is not only a great way to secure your chat, but it also ensures frequent protection in all your linked devices.

Synchronized chat lock is a feature that allows you to lock a specific chat on your smartphone, and this lock automatically applies to all other connected devices on the same chat.
This means that you no longer need to manually lock different chats on each device. An exciting upgrade is seen by WABETAINFO, which is a reliable source for WhatsApp updates.
This new feature has been found in Android 188.8.131.52 update, which is available to all enrolled beta testers through Google Play Store.
For example, if you are sharing sensitive information with a colleague on your work phone, you can lock that chat.
