WhatsApp has added a new feature that will make users’ privacy more secure.

It should be noted that messages are already protected by end-to-end encryption in WhatsApp.

Now the Meta-owned messaging app is improving the security of calls.

Meta announced that Android and iOS users will be able to hide IP address during calls on WhatsApp.

Under this feature, the user’s call will be made through WhatsApp servers.

Enabling this feature will make it very difficult for others to know your location.

Although using this feature will provide more security to the calls but the call quality will be affected to some extent.

Along with this, WhatsApp has also introduced a feature to mute calls from unknown numbers.

According to the company, with this feature, users will be able to provide more protection to their data from cyber attacks.

How to use IP address hiding feature?

This feature is optional i.e. user has to enable it himself.

To use this feature, open WhatsApp and go to Settings.

Select the Advanced option in the Privacy section of Settings.

There, click on the Protect IP address in calls option and enable it.

As mentioned above, using this feature may affect call quality to some extent.
