With WhatsApp secret code, users can lock the entire chat with a code or password which can be created with letters, numbers, special characters, and emoji. Additionally, this feature is so hidden that other users will not know if you have a locked chat folder. As per reports, the users need to enter the secret code in the search bar to access the chat folder. Additionally, the use of a secret code is not compulsory as you can select to show your locked chats in the chatlist as well if you want to.

Also, to use the feature, users only have to long press the conversation and set a code for the chat instead of going the WhatsApp chat settings.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement through the WhatsApp Channel during which he said, “Now you can set your locked chats to only appear when you type the secret code in the search bar, so no one can ‘unintentionally’ discover your most private conversations.”

The WhatsApp secret code feature has started to roll out globally and users will receive the feature on their smartphones in the coming months.
