This additional time could help facilitate more temporary conversations on WhatasApp. As per findings by WABetaInfo in a report, it now appears that WhatsApp has silently gone on to implement a "Block revoke request" feature in order to stop users from exploiting the "Delete for Everyone" feature through modded versions of the app. When the recipient received this particular message contained the revoke request, WhatsApp checked if the ID of the message was present in the database and directly deleted it. This message has the same ID of the message that the user wants to revoke. It then checks the date related information of the message saved in the database. This will ensure that nobody can fool the system to delete messages for everyone dating back to three years. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp's "Block revoke request" feature will quietly add some protection to prevent misuse of the "Delete for Everyone" feature. "It is a bug fixes update, but it has the new "Delete for everyone" limit, that's 1 hour, 8 minutes and 16 seconds". The update is a step to curb exploitation of a feature that was deemed useful by those using the platform.
