Seeing as we talking about blocking screenshots, would love to see WhatsApp implement a feature that notifies a user when a screenshot is taken of their conversation... #Receipts

Why would you want to block screenshots on your own phone?
You might want to activate fingerprint authentication. Seems as a security feature you'd also then be blocked from taking screenshots. Sure there'd be a way around it though.

Oh noes.. another Whatsapp article..

@sajunky is going to be MOST upset with you Jamie....
Yeh, before they were involved with a campain against Zuma (which had nothing with IT news), now this pro-Whatsap bigotry. There is no fair news, no absolutely balance of coverage on MyBB IT news.

On the subject I must take a stance, as Telegram could block screenshots on secret chats from the beginning.
It is one example how Whatsap is lagging behind.

Well that's a different level of upset... Jamie you must return the money whatsapp paid you for the fluff piece. @sajunky knows what you are now.

Telegram may be superior in terms of security, whatwhatwhat, but that all goes for naught when some idiot posts a link to join a Telegram neighbourhood security group...seen it recently.
