It is said that WhatsApp is working on a new update. With its help, users will be able to create a unique username. They will not need to share their phone number with everyone. According to WABetaInfo, this feature is currently being developed, which may take a few months to arrive. It has been told in the report that the conversation through the unique username will also be protected with end-to-end encryption, that is, apart from the two users, no third party will be able to access the information.
At present, users have to share their mobile number to login on WhatsApp. However, many social media apps and messaging apps connect people even without a mobile number. In recent times, many incidents of spam calls have been seen on WhatsApp. In India too, a large number of people were troubled by spam calls and messages on WhatsApp. This matter had also reached the government.
WABetaInfo has also shared a screenshot. This shows that users will get the option of username in their profile. The username can be selected after going to the WhatsApp settings and clicking on the profile there. After this, the rest of the users can be searched by their username in the app itself. This will protect the mobile number from others to a great extent. It is not yet known how long this feature will be rolled out. No official information has been given by WhatsApp or Meta about the feature.
