How WhatsApp Incognito Mode Works to Have Private Chats?

As is well known, the main function of WhatsApp is to provide users with direct communication between co-workers, friends, and loved ones through an internet connection.

However, many experts have expressed the importance of disconnecting from social networks and instant messaging applications, which is why the app developed by Meta offers different options.

One of them is the deactivation of the reading confirmation, that is, the double blue check. Another option is to hide the last connection on the platform.

In this sense, users can go unnoticed and not receive as many messages from work or from any other contact.

However, to maintain a more private chat, WhatsApp is developing “incognito mode“, where it is intended to hide the conversations and protect them with a fingerprint.

For this reason, Meta has added private chats in the beta version of the application, which will have a password. Likewise, the fingerprint has been enabled for the chats that users consider.

To achieve this, it will be necessary to enter the configuration options of a chat, and then the ‘Block Chat” section should appear. This feature allows you to hide the conversation in the folder called ‘Locked Chats’.

To access the aforementioned folder, people will have to enter all the biometric data. It is important to mention that this function is different from archived messages and appears at the top of WhatsApp.

What is WhatsApp Beta?

It should be reiterated that WhatsApp usually tests its new functions with a small group of people, with the aim of detecting failures or collecting suggestions on the tools that it wishes to incorporate into its platform.

This group of users is part of a program called WhatsApp beta, through which access is granted to a special version of the application that incorporates experimental or development functions.

The process to sign up for the WhatsApp beta program does not represent a major difficulty; for this, it is only necessary to follow the following actions:

  • From a web browser, enter the official page of the WhatsApp beta program.
  • Click on the “Become a Tester” button.
  • If you have the app installed, you must update it on Google Play Store.
  • If you do not have the app, you will have to search Google Play Store for the official WhatsApp application.
  • Download the application on your smartphone.

Once the aforementioned steps have been carried out, the user will be part of the WhatsApp beta program and therefore have access to the experimental functions that the platform is developing.

From that moment on, it is important that the user tries to have the latest version of WhatsApp available in order to be able to count on all the changes that are being made in the app.

How to install WhatsApp Beta on an iPhone?

In order to have the beta version of WhatsApp on an iPhone, it is necessary to have the Apple platform “TestFlight,” an application that is available in the App Store and that gives the user access to the beta functions of the app.

To have the beta version on an Apple iphone, it will be necessary to perform the following steps:

When the WhatsApp beta is installed next to the user’s name, a small orange circle will appear that identifies that app as a beta.

In the event that the user opens the link and finds a message with the phrase “This beta version is full”, it will be announced that the platform does not have free spaces for users who wish to access WhatsApp beta. Given this situation, it will be necessary to wait for a quota to open to access the program.
