Sometimes, WhatsApp users may feel the need to hide sensitive chats from the chat screen but WhatsApp doesn’t have the feature to hide chats.
Many people use WhatsApp to discuss personal and sensitive matters. Matters between love partners, business men and women e.t.c. In the normal sense, these chats are meant to be private but many of us have got friends that are inquisitive.
So people go as far as hiding the WhatsApp application itself or using app lock just to keep away snoopers. Although, WhatsApp has one good feature that might be as well considered as a method to hide WhatsApp chats which is the fingerprint lock feature.
So how can you hide your WhatsApp chat on WhatsApp itself? Let’s find out.
If you don’t want a particular chat on your WhatsApp to be read by your friends or anyone, instead of deleting the whole WhatsApp chat from your history forever there’s actually a feature you can use to hide your sensitive chats from prying eyes using the the simplest method: The Archive Chat Feature.
Haha😂😂!! Yeah I know you’re amazed.
The Archive Chat Feature allows you to hide your chat from appearing on the chat screen. However, this feature allows you to return the ‘hidden’ chat to the chat screen at any time.
