NIX Solutions: WhatsApp Enhances Group Chat Security

The popular messenger is introducing a new feature that will allow users to protect themselves from spam and fraud in group chats. Now, when a user is added to a group chat by someone they don’t know, a context card will be displayed for them in the group.

Details of the New Feature

The card will display information about the group’s creator, creation date, group description, and whether the user was added by someone from their WhatsApp contact list. In addition, the context card will have a button allowing the user to quickly leave the chat, as well as a link to more information about WhatsApp security tools.

This new feature is similar to the existing feature in WhatsApp, which allows you to avoid communicating with strangers and quickly identify if they have been added to groups involved in any illegal activity.

Implementation and Availability

According to WhatsApp representatives, context cards for group chats have already begun to be implemented worldwide and will be available to all users without exception in the coming weeks. The new feature is part of the company’s efforts to improve security and protect users from inappropriate content and fraud in the messenger, notes NIX Solutions.
