You can now block contacts or texts on WhatsApp from your lock screen


If you frequently use WhatsApp, this update might please you. Today, WhatsApp released a new feature that allows you to block unwanted calls, texts and so forth from your lock screen. So, what should you know about it?

For your information, WhatsApp has made it easier to control who can contact you. Thanks to this new feature, you can now block spam right from your lock screen or chat list. Interestingly, you can do this without opening the message.

To do this, simply long-press the intended message until two options pop up. That would be “Reply” and “Block”. By choosing Block, you can then choose to either only block or block and report. In light of the recent rise of scam cases, this is a very welcomed addition. Especially for Malaysians
