WhatsApp users can currently have selected chats disappear after seven days
WhatsApp users enable the disappearing messages feature in order to have sensitive messages automatically deleted. Adding the 24-hour and 90-day options allows WhatsApp subscribers to select a time frame that is more aligned with how quickly they need a message to disappear. We should point out that WhatsApp uses end-to-end encryption so that only the sender and recipient of messages, photos, videos, voice messages, documents, and calls know their contents.

If you’ve never used the seven-day disappearing messages feature before, here is how it works. Click on a WhatsApp chat that you would like to see disappear after seven days. Click on the three-dot menu on the top-right corner and tap on “Group info” and then on “Disappearing messages.” After reading a page explaining how this feature works, you’ll click on “Continue” which will take you to the disappearing messages menu. All you then need to do is tap the “On” option to enable disappearing messages for the chat that you selected.
