Some WhatsApp messages are just not meant to be copied and much less forwarded. You even delete the WhatsApp backup on Google Drive to keep your messages as safe as possible. But, if you send a normal text message on WhatsApp, all the other person has to do is long-press on the message. After that, it’s copied.
If someone wants a copy of what you wrote, they can still take a screenshot, but the following tip will prevent them from at least copying the text as they’ve always done. You won’t need a third-party app to do this.
How to Stop WhatsApp Text Messages from being Copied
No matter how long they long press on the text, they won’t be able to copy it. All you have to do is tap on the paperclip and send any picture. At the bottom, you’ll see some space where it allows you to type a message. Type any message there, and when you send the text, it’ll appear below the image.
If the other person tried to copy by long-pressing on the text, the entire image would be highlighted, and when they try to send it, only the image will be sent without the text.
When you can’t copy something like you usually does, you usually don’t go through the trouble of manually typing it over again. Especially if the text is long. With this simple trick, you’ll keep your text messages a little safer. Usually, the harder something is to do, the less likely it is that someone will try it, especially if they’re in a hurry; by seeing that they can’t copy the text, they’ll pass on trying. Do you think that you’ll give the tip a try? Let me know in the comments below, and don’t forget to share the article with others on social media.
