Problems May Arise with Meta’s Disappearing Message Feature in Certain Instances

Meta’s popular chatting app WhatsApp has provided many features for the convenience of users. To ensure user privacy and security, privacy features are available in the app.


Most of the time we find these features useful, but using the feature in the wrong chat can create new problems for you. Actually, here we are talking about Disappearing feature of WhatsApp.

With this feature of WhatsApp, the user’s WhatsApp chat disappears without deleting it. WhatsApp’s privacy feature works to ensure that a chat between two people is not accidentally viewed by a third person.

However, after the conversation between two people is over, the message is deleted with the consent of both partners. In this setting, users get 24 hours, 7 days and 90 days option to make the chat disappear.

Many times the user’s phone also has office groups. Users should stay alert for important work messages in this group almost throughout the day. If you accidentally turn on the setting in a group, messages will disappear not only for you but for everyone after a set time. In such a situation, being a part of a large group, you may make a big mistake, for which you may have to face difficulties.

To ensure that such mistakes are not caused by any member of the group, the WhatsApp group admin can disable this setting for everyone in the official group.

If the group admin doesn’t disable the setting, it could be one person’s mistake that could harm everyone.
