Does WhatsApp send notifications when I take a screenshot?

Have you ever taken a screenshot of a WhatsApp chat? If so, you may have wondered if the chat contact has received a notification.

 

This is because many apps inform the contact when a screenshot of a conversation has been taken. With Snapchat, for example, the other user is notified about the screenshot. Whether WhatsApp has integrated this feature, we would like to tell you here:

Does Whatsapp send notifications to the contact when you take a screenshot of the chat?

The answer to this question is short and sweet: No! The screenshot function does not automatically send an info to the chat contact.

In the future, WhatsApp may also introduce a feature here that, when enabled, restricts screen capture of a particular chat. After all, data protection is becoming increasingly important these days.

Now you know that WhatsApp does not send notifications to the contact when you take a screenshot of a chat.
