Whatsapp introduced this feature earlier this year, but now it has expanded the time of disappearing messages by allowing you to (switch) it on by default setting for all chats, along with more changes.

The company has been coming up with many more features to the messaging application over this year, with a brilliantly refined appearance, multi-device supports given so that you don’t need to use your phone in the middle of managing chats, and more to better efficiently used other apps such as iMessage and Telegram.

However, the newest privacy policy has been a source of contention with users, giving WhatsApp the chance to read messages without users’ consent. While this improvised feature gives you greater control for certain chats, which could encourage abusers to use the app to better hide any conversations that could lead to bringing up attention to law enforcement rights.

How to activate Whatsapp’s New Feature

In their recent blog post the company is advocating the feature by telling its importance of controlling over your chats better, and how you can change the expiration timer for 24 hours, 7 days, or (90days).

Meaning, any messages will be deleted after a certain time from when they’re sent.

You can find this feature by simply going to

Settings>Privacy>Disappearing Messages, and there you can set the expiration of the message to one of the three timers, which are 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days.

This applies to both Android and iOS, and the setting that you will choose will also apply to other devices that you use Whatsapp on, such as Whatsapp Web, iPad, Windows 11, Mac.
