Alert: WhatsApp may no longer allow downloading profile pics of users!
WhatsApp profile pictures are set to get more security with the new rule.
WhatsApp has removed the possibility to save profile pictures of individuals in the latest Android beta updates and WhatsApp Business beta for iOS, WABetaInfo reported. As a part of its latest beta update, WhatsApp will discontinue the saving option to stop the potential misuse of profile photos.
The first step to rolling out granular controls on user profile was seen on Facebook when it introduced certain masks that blocked downloading and saving profile image.
The beta version does not show the profile sharing button, among other sharing options such as Facebook, Instagram, and other apps. However, the feature reportedly does not block users from taking screenshots of the profile picture.
