In October, WhatsApp introduced a screenshot blocking feature for view once images and videos in order to protect the privacy of their users. The screenshot blocking feature was a welcome addition to the app, but we believe the team can do even better by improving privacy for video calls. While images and videos sent as view once are protected by the screenshot blocking feature, video calls can easily be recorded by anyone on the call: this is why we’ve developed a concept for a screen recording blocking feature for WhatsApp video calls.

Our concept introduces a screen recording blocking feature for WhatsApp video calls: any attempt to take a screenshot or screen recording during a video call will be blocked. This feature ensures that the privacy of the call is protected at all times, which is especially important for sensitive or personal conversations such as job interviews or school lessons: allowing these calls to be recorded would be a major breach of trust and could have some consequences for the participants, such as damaging their reputation or violating their confidentiality. Preventing recording altogether would improve the already-secure privacy of video calls on WhatsApp, which are protected by end-to-end encryption.

In addition to protecting the privacy of users, this feature would also make WhatsApp a more attractive choice for those who value their privacy. It would also set WhatsApp apart from other messaging apps that do not offer this level of protection. We believe it is an essential addition to WhatsApp’s already robust suite of privacy features, but it is important to continue improving privacy features in order to make progress.

Please note that the feature described in this concept is not currently available on WhatsApp. While this is simply a concept at this time, we hope that it will be considered for implementation in a future update of the app. We believe that this feature would be a significant step forward in improving privacy for video calls on WhatsApp, and it would be a valuable asset to the user experience. If we receive any updates or information about the possibility of this feature being implemented, we will be sure to share it with you through additional articles on our website. We hope that you enjoyed learning about our concept and appreciate your feedback.
