WhatsApp is rolling out a feature that allows users to have photos or videos vanish after they are seen.

After the recipient opens the image for the first time, "view once" deletes it, without saving it to a phone. WhatsApp said the feature was aimed at "giving users even more control over their privacy".

However, child protection advocates have expressed concern that auto-vanishing messages could help cover up evidence of child sexual abuse. Such encryption means police cannot see the messages "in transit" - only the sender and receiver can.

But auto-deleting messages could mean that devices seized in police raids would no longer contain evidence either. WhatsApp is marketing view once as a privacy feature for regular consumers, saying it could be used for throwaway yet personal photos - when trying on clothes in a shop and asking a partner how they looked, for example, or sending someone a password.

And it was rolling out the feature to "everyone starting this week". Users will know a message is "view once" because the preview will be hidden and a large "1" icon displayed instead. Much like vanishing messages on other apps such as Snapchathowever, it is possible for a user to take a screenshot or screen recording of the message when it is first opened - or to film one screen with another camera.

Whatsapp photos and videos can now disappear after a single viewing

WhatsApp introduced a disappearing-messages function in November. It erases text messages for both the sender and recipient after seven days - and is one of the areas of concern for a legal challenge to the UK government.

UK law says information relating to "substantive discussions or decisions" need to be kept on record for the historical archive. Several members of government are known to use WhatsApp and similar app al frequently, leading one campaigning law firm to accuse political leaders of "government by text". The Cabinet Office has said "appropriate arrangements" are already in place to ensure official communications are retained in line with the rules.
