In the latest update, WhatsApp added a new feature called “View Once” that lets users send photos and videos that disappear after they’re opened. This is similar to what you can do in apps like Snapchat and Instagram.
How to block screenshots for ‘View Once’ images and videos on WhatsApp
When someone tries to take a screenshot of a “View Once” media while viewing it, WhatsApp now shows a message that says the capture was “blocked for added privacy.” WABetaInfo showed that the final screenshot or screen recording will also show this warning instead of the real content. This protects the user who sent the image or video.
WhatsApp from Meta is a FREE messaging and video calling app. It’s used by over 2B people in more than 180 countries. It’s simple, reliable, and private, so you can easily keep in touch with your friends and family. WhatsApp works across mobile and desktops even on slow connections, with no subscription fees
