A new “Protect IP Address in Call” feature has been introduced by WhatsApp. After the arrival of this feature, no one will be able to track your location. Actually, currently the location of the caller could be traced through IP address. But now location information will not be available during calling. This is an extra layer security feature, which is activated while messaging or receiving a call. In such a situation, soon users will get a new feature, which will enable users to hide their IP address.
According to Meta Engineer, the new feature will protect the IP address during calling. For this you will have to change the settings. Like other calling features, peer to peer connectivity is offered by WhatsApp. Meaning both parties making the call can see each other’s IP address. Let us tell you that by obtaining information about someone’s calling IP address and Internet service provider, information about the user’s current location can be obtained. In such a situation, it would be better that the user should not share IP address and Internet service provider information with any unknown person.
