More data protection on WhatsApp! Screenshots of profile photos no longer possible

Anyone who wants to take a screenshot of a profile picture will in future receive a message “noting that the action has been blocked.” This closes a security gap. Five years ago, WhatsApp prevented the ability to save profile photos of other users. Users first had to allow someone to use their images. “However, it was still possible to take a screenshot of such photos, undermining the intended privacy protections,” the blog post said. By eliminating screenshots, the messenger wants to increase data protection even further. However, after the update, users can still take a photo of a profile photo from the owner’s screen with a cell phone or another camera.

The beta version is already available to some testers. It is already available on the Google Play Store. According to the blog, the update will be rolled out “in the next few weeks.” However, an exact date has not yet been set.
