WhatsApp will let you know when someone screenshots your chat

Could a virally spread story about a new WhatsApp feature be true?

True or Fake?

A dream WhatsApp feature that notifies you when someone takes a screensot of your chat, may finally come true. But is it a true or fake story? Judge for yourself.

Jan Koum, the CEO of WhatsApp announced that the next version of the application is going to include the option of being notified if someone screenshots your conversation. This is an option requested by a lot of users lately, and according to him “after all these years, we’ve reached the conclusion to add it”.

“The functioning is simple, just like the blue tick: You will have the option activated by default. If it’s checked, you’ll be notified if someone screenshots your conversation, and others will be notified if you screenshot theirs. If it’s unchecked, no one gets notified”, stated Koum.

Some users are pissed by this feature, but it’s not that bad at all.

The reason behind this feature, according to Koum, is that he’s tired of his girlfriend screenshotting his chats. That’s why he wants to make the feature available for everyone feeling the same way. Although it will be enabled by default.
