Tech News Desk – International Women’s Day will be celebrated all over the world on 8 March. In 1975, the United Nation celebrated Women’s Day for the first time and then after 2 years from 1977, it was celebrated all over the world on March 8. However, even today many crimes and atrocities are committed on women in different ways.
After the advent of technology, women continued to be harassed and exploited even through it. In such a situation, today through this article we are going to tell you how you can keep yourself safe and secure from the chaotic elements on the major social media app WhatsApp. Actually, many times women get messages or calls from different numbers and people unnecessarily harass them. In such a situation, you can keep yourself tension free by using these features of WhatsApp.
These are some of the best features of WhatsApp
If someone repeatedly messages you from an unknown number, you can immediately report them to WhatsApp using the Block and Report option.
To maintain your privacy, you can use the disappearing message feature of WhatsApp, in which messages are automatically deleted after 24 hours. Apart from this, you can also use the ‘View Once’ feature to share photos or videos.
If you want, you can also opt for screenshot blocking for the ‘View Once’ feature. After turning on this feature, if someone wants to save your sent photo for future, then it will not be able to work.
Many times in WhatsApp, people add each other to WhatsApp groups without asking. In such a situation, to maintain your privacy, you can choose who can add you to the group. Inside the setting, you get three types of options, in which the first is Everyone, the second is My Contact and the third is None. With this you can stay away from unwanted groups.
You can also decide who can see your personal information on WhatsApp like profile photo, last seen, online status etc.
Make sure to put an extra security layer on your WhatsApp account and keep the two-step verification feature on. After doing this, after a certain time, WhatsApp will ask you for a 6-digit PIN, and only after that you will be able to start WhatsApp.
