Reverse engineering specialist Jane Wong found that messages sent in a new dark mode disappear when the chat is closed.
Timed, self-destructing messages can help users send sensitive messages for a stipulated time, hence making WhatsApp more secure.
With the new feature, messages on WhatsApp groups can be sent for specific durations, before they are automatically deleted.
WhatsApp is now calling its self-destructing messages feature, 'Delete Messages' and no, there's still no news on the Dark Mode.
The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team recommends that all WhatsApp users upgrade to the app's latest version to avoid any security threats.
Google Assistant support, Instagram-like Boomerang Videos, Dark Mode and Disappearing Messages are some new WhatsApp features that i0S, Android users can expect soon.
A hacker can take control of the phone’s data by running a malicious code on the device.
Once a user selects a time option, the self-destruct is enabled and any message sent in a group will be automatically deleted after that time period.
