WhatsApp is constantly trying to provide its users with the best experience by updating the app regularly. One of its most iconic features is the end-to end encryption, Zee News reported.

The end-to-end encryption on WhatsApp protects all personal messages, photos, videos, and more from falling into the wrong hands.

Taking this one step ahead, WhatsApp last year introduced the Chat Lock feature, which helps people protect their more sensitive conversations.

Adding to it, the messaging app rolled out the "Secret Code" feature, which is an additional way to protect these chats and make them harder to find. By creating a secret code, the locked chat will not show up in your chat list. You can only find it by typing your secret code in the search bar.

With a secret code, you can set a unique password to give your locked chats an extra layer of privacy.
