How To Turn On Chat Lock In WhatsApp?

Here are three simple ways in which you can enable the new WhatsApp feature.

WhatsApp has introduced a new feature to help users keep their messages private and secure. Locking a chat takes that thread out of the inbox and puts it behind its own folder that can only be accessed with a user's device password or biometric, like a fingerprint. It also automatically hides the contents of that chat in notifications, too.
