WhatsApp reshuffles to further protect user safety


Improvements and optimizations are constant in WhatsApp. Facebook wants to make this your messaging tool as close as possible to perfection and so has worked to make it even better.

After several recent improvements, a new one seems to be coming. WhatsApp will have its own browser that will have added security and protect users.

So far, whenever a WhatsApp link was received, the user had to use the browser set on Android. This is an equal behavior in many applications, but will soon change radically.

WhatsApp also has a browser for users

The latest test version of WhatsApp has a secret and soon it will be possible to use an internal browser. This way users do not leave the app and can access links that are shared more quickly.

For this, a web view of Android is used, which guarantees the immediate presence of a browser. At the same time it prevents Facebook from accessing the pages that users access. This is achieved thanks to Android's own privacy policies.

Google guarantees the security of each link

There is one last advantage when using this form to create the browser. This ensures an additional layer of protection for users. This is achieved by the presence of safe navigation functionality.

So whenever a potentially dangerous link is shared, Google will ensure user protection. This will impede your access, alerting them to the problems that may exist.

Although this news is already present in the latest beta, it is not active for everyone. It is expected to arrive soon, in version 2.19.74. After the new emoji and the search for images, it is now time for WhatsApp to have a browser.
