Disappearing messages

WhatsApp recently made this new function available to all users. Your emails will be automatically deleted if you use this method. However, in terms of privacy, this is a risky feature. These automatically deleted texts, on the other hand, remain in the app for at least 7 days. Your messages will stay in the notice, and these discussions can be collected by another user in this circumstance. Additionally, the receiving user has the option of saving your communication as a backup. You erase the chat right away for security reasons.

Images saved by default

If photos or videos sent to your WhatsApp account are automatically preserved, alter the option as soon as possible. According to cyber specialists, photographs can occasionally be used as Trojan horses. These hackers can effortlessly hack your phone with their assistance. To avoid this, go to your WhatsApp settings right away. By clicking on Chats, you may now close the Save to Camera Roll window.

WhatsApp should not be backed up to iCloud.

So far, Apple’s security has been touted as the best. Experts, on the other hand, say WhatsApp should never be backed up on iCloud. Any WhatsApp chat that is moved to iCloud becomes Apple’s property. That means security agencies can access your Apple chats. For this reason, experts advise against backing up to iCloud.
