WhatsApp has just published a page detailing how its temporary messages work, whose contents disappear after seven days.

The ability to send self-destructing messages was probably one of the most requested features by WhatsApp users. And now, it's official. The application that already allows end-to-end encrypted messages to be exchanged will soon allow the exchange of content that has an expiration date.

If at the moment, this feature has not yet been deployed, WhatsApp has already posted an FAQ to explain how its "temporary messages" will work. "You can send messages on WhatsApp which will disappear by activating temporary messages. Once the feature is activated, new messages sent to the discussion will disappear after seven days », explains Facebook messaging service.

In a conversation on WhatsApp, each of the two users will have the possibility to activate or deactivate temporary messages. On the other hand, in group chats, the feature must be enabled by an administrator. And if you receive a temporary message, you will need to open it within seven days, if not, the content will disappear.

If not, there are still some exceptions that make WhatsApp temporary messages not that temporary. for example, if you reply to a temporary message and it is quoted, the quoted text can continue to be displayed even after the seven days.

Moreover, if a temporary message is transferred to another conversation where this feature has not been activated, then the quoted text will not disappear after the seven days, where he was transferred. Finally, WhatsApp states that "if a user creates a backup before a message disappears, the temporary message will be included in the backup. Temporary messages will be deleted when the user restores their backup. »

In other words, it is quite possible that your ephemeral message will not go away as expected after the seven days. Moreover, WhatsApp warns that this feature should be used with people you trust.

Indeed, the person you are chatting with can always transfer, checked in, take a capture, or copy the exchanged content before its disappearance. And with regard to the media (photos and videos), WhatsApp explain : " By default, the media you receive in WhatsApp are automatically downloaded to your photos. If temporary messages are enabled, media sent in the chat will disappear, but will be downloaded to your phone if automatic download is enabled. »

Today, the ability to exchange ephemeral content has become a must for messaging services. Nowadays, even Gmail offers a feature that allows you to send emails that disappear after an expiration date.

However, seen all the exceptions that cause messages supposed to disappear may not disappear, using this feature of WhatsApp to have highly sensitive conversations is definitely not a good idea.
