Last week, WhatsApp announced a series of impending news, among which the protection against ephemeral photo screenshots, those that can only be opened once by their recipient, but without much detail about how it works. Now we have some additional data on how it works from the hand of WaBetaInfo.
WaBetaInfo has managed to unofficially enable the feature and extract some additional details on how WhatsApp will protect ephemeral photos, in its WhatsApp for Android beta. There is an important detail: it won’t notify you that you tried to take the screenshot. It just won’t let you.
