Chat lock was already launched in 2023. it allows you to lock your chats, and group chats via biometrics of your fingerprint or using the passcode. When you open your WhatsApp message, anyone can access the chats and read them. Chat lock allows you to add another privacy barrier to your private chats, so even if intruders unlock your app, they still cannot get access to locked chats.

This way, even if someone knows your phone password, they still have no idea of your secret code. And they will be completely unaware of the secret locked chats present in your WhatsApp messenger.
Once the locked chat is hidden using the secret code, no one can make it appear again unless you write the secret code in the search bar of WhatsApp Messenger. After typing the correct secret code, the locked chats will appear before you.
