    WhatsApp chats are end-to-end encrypted but still, no one can be sure about the privacy of the chats simply because of so many uncertainties. WhatsApp looks to ensure it brings as many features to let you keep your chats and privacy intact and here is a trick that can help you. This privacy feature makes old messages disappear on their own after a set interval of time. It's a clever trick to improve your privacy by destroying the messages that you don't want to keep for a longer period of time.

    Disappearing messages is an in-built optional feature of the instant app which can turn be turned on for greater privacy. You can select a set of options to make the messages disappear for 24 hours, 7 days, or 90 days. Well, you don't need to worry about the older messages before enabling this privacy feature. The most recent selection only controls new messages in the chat. This setting won't affect messages you previously sent or received in the chat.
