After installing the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update from the Google Play Store, some users may be able to get a new privacy checkup screen. This feature has been developed to help users better understand and manage their privacy settings. With this new feature, users can quickly review their privacy settings so they can be always in control over who can see their information. If you want to review your privacy settings by using the privacy checkup screen, you need to open your privacy settings to check if the feature is available for your account:
In case the feature is enabled for your account, you can see a new banner within your privacy settings and you’re ready to start the checkup by choosing the right settings for you. In this section, you can choose who can contact you by deciding who can add you to groups and manage your blocked contacts. You can control your personal info by choosing the best audience for your profile photo, last seen and online, read receipts, and more. In addition, you can add more privacy to your chats and groups by settings up disappearing messages and enabling end-to-end encrypted backups.
As you can understand, the screen provides users with an overview of their account privacy settings. It will also show users some options to add an additional layer of privacy to their conversations. In our opinion, the privacy checkup screen is a good tool for quickly reviewing privacy settings.
The privacy checkup screen is available for some beta testers that install the latest update of WhatsApp beta for Android from the Play Store, and it is rolling out to even more people over the coming days.
