WhatsApp starts blocking screenshots for view once videos and images.

In August 2021, WhatsApp took a cue from Snapchat and added the ability to view media only once on its platform.

This feature allows users to send photos and videos that can only be viewed once. They then self-destruct.

This is a great option, especially when sharing private or sensitive photos. However, the meta-owned company made a big oversight when implementing the feature.

WABetaInfo reports that WhatsApp has released a new version of its View Once media viewer with a built-in screenshot blocking feature for some beta users.

When trying to take a screenshot of self-destructing media in the latest WhatsApp beta, a pop-up message appears saying 'Security policies prevent you from taking screenshots'.

You also cannot bypass this security restriction using third-party apps or extensions. A black screenshot appears at the end.

Similarly, you can't record your screen while you have the media view open in WhatsApp. Unlike Snapchat.
