WhatsApp integrates two new safety features

Tuesday 23 November 2021 13:01 CET | News

WhatsApp has introduced Flash Calls and Message Level Reporting to allow users in India better security and control over the messaging app.

With Flash Calls, new Android users or the ones who change their devices frequently can choose to verify their phone numbers via an automated call instead of an SMS. According to WhatsApp, this is a safer option, given that it takes place all from within the app.

The Message Level Reporting feature allows users to report a particular message received on WhatsApp. This can be done by simply long pressing a particular message to either report or block a user.

WhatsApp has also rolled out the ability to let users hide their profile picture, last seen, and more from certain people, the ability to block someone who might prove bothersome, and two-step verification (2FA).
