  • WhatsApp is said to be working on syncing chat locks across linked devices.
  • Android and iOS users can already lock their chats, but these do not carry over to the Web, Windows, and macOS versions.
  • The feature is currently under development and has not been officially announced.

Using WhatsApp with multiple devices was practically impossible a few years ago, but the instant messaging app made it easier by introducing linked device functionality. You can have a primary device that receives all the messages and then complement it with multiple secondary devices (Android, iOS, Web, Windows, and macOS) that sync the same messages. Now, the service has been spotted working on a new chat lock feature that syncs the lock across these devices.

Android and iOS users can already lock chats behind their phone’s passcode, Face ID, fingerprint, or secret code. However, these locked chats appear unlocked on the Web, Windows, and macOS. According to a report from WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a syncing functionality that will lock chats on your linked devices across these operating systems.
