How to use the WhatsApp image blur feature
WhatsApp is now receiving the image Blur feature on Desktop. The is only available on desktop and not for mobile devices.
This tool will help you to protect your privacy when sharing pictures or videos with your friends and family members.
The Image Blur feature will help WhatsApp users to share images that are difficult to decipher in text messages. It will also allow them to hide sensitive information, such as their location or personal details, in a single click. .The feature will be most useful for those who are in situations where privacy is a concern, such as activists or journalists. It can also help people share their location without sharing the exact coordinates of their phone.
There are certain applications where blurred images are more appropriate than others. For instance, a blurred selfie might be appropriate for Instagram but not for Facebook because it obscures too much of the face.
This is a great new feature that will help people stay safe from unwanted prying eyes or embarrassing situations.
