Meta's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mark Zuckerberg, has announced exciting new privacy features for Whatsapp users this month. According to the CEO users will now be able to exit groups without everyone in the group knowing. This is part of new privacy features introduced by the social media platform. With the "Leave Groups Silently" feature, instead of notifying the full group when leaving, only the admins will be notified. Zuckerberg, who made this known in a Facebook post said WhatsApp users can also prevent people from doing a screenshot of messages tagged as 'view once'.


Zuckerberg wrote: “New privacy features coming to WhatsApp; exit group chats without notifying everyone, control who can see when you’re online, and prevent screenshots on view once messages. We’ll keep building new ways to protect your messages and keep them as private and secure as face-to-face conversations.”

He added that the last privacy feature will allow users to control who can see them when they are online, a feature that will roll out to users this month.

“For the moments that you want to keep your online presence private, we’re introducing the ability to select who can and can’t see when you’re online.”
