In today’s article we will see in a few steps how to put passwords to WhatsApp conversations or chats on Android. Learn to protect your conversations from curious stares.
Between the time we go to a friend’s place and we leave the cell phone to go to the bathroom, for example. Maybe we lend the phone so that they can look at some photos, videos, apps, etc. Are we sure they don’t look any further than they should?
Perhaps a jealous girlfriend or friend wants to see all the conversations you have with other people. Even if your phone is stolen, the least you want is someone without authorization can read all the conversations you have on WhatsApp.
This clearly violates your privacy and today there are many people who, the privacy of others, do not care. That is why it is important that you be careful, protect your privacy as much as possible and put passwords to your WhatsApp chats on Android. So you also easily create a strong and easy-to-remember password.
In this article we are going to look at two methods to do this. The first is using the same options that the application allows us to protect all the chats that we have through the app.
The second is a fairly effective method that I personally recommend. Not only to protect all the conversations you have on WhatsApp. But it also serves to protect the chats you have in any instant messaging app.
Therefore, we are going to see in detail what you should do to protect your conversations in a fairly simple way with a password, PIN or block WhatsApp with my fingerprint, which is the best way to do it because it is the safest, as long as you can. improve fingerprint speed on Samsung mobiles.
How to add password to my WhatsApp chats
- The first option that we are going to see is making use of them application features in question and it is quite easy to carry out.
- For this we will have to open WhatsApp on our device.
- Then we go to the upper right part of the screen where the three points are.
- Next, we are going to press on them and we can see a menu with several options. Let’s choose the one that says “Settings”.
- Now you will have to press on “Account”.
- Then click on “Privacy”.
- If you go to the bottom you will see a section that says “Fingerprint lock”.
In this way you can not only block a contact but WhatsApp in general and can only be opened with a fingerprint. You can also select how often after closing the app asks for the fingerprint. In this way, if we close the app and configure it to ask for it every 5 minutes, if we open the app before, it will not be requesting it. It is a very simple way to protect all the chats that we have in the app from curious glances.
How to put passwords to my conversations on WhatsApp
In case you don’t want to use the fingerprint to protect your conversations and you want to use a PIN or password. So for this we are going to have to download the application called Chat Look which is available in the Play Store and is completely free.
This application allows us to create a PIN to protect the chats of any application, not just WhatsApp. Something that comes in handy for other apps like Messenger or Instagram.
In case the PIN is entered incorrectly, the front camera turns on and takes a picture to capture the person who is trying to enter to our conversations.
Therefore, it is a very useful app that is used for all the applications that you have installed on your mobile device: WhatsApp, Messenger, Instagram, SMS, Gmail, etc.
