It's hard to find a 'drowning' conversation among new chats in whatsApp, isn’t? Frequently send messages to certain people and want to quickly open the chat but don’t want to search? Here is how to create a shortcut link or icon that can take us directly to the chat or to the desired conversation in whatsApp without having to search and pass the WhatsApp home interface.
Over time WhatsApp users continue to grow, from elementary school level to parents or event grandparent almost all have WhatsApp account on their phone, in addition to its easy use like SMS or phone call like conventional phone, this application also allows us to create groups that can be created and joined by anyone.
The more contacts you add, the more conversations you receive and even send from your phone or smartphone, especially when chatting with friends in groups, some are quiet but some are always active all the time, which forced you to be selective on choosing chat on whatsApp. Along with lot of active chat, the effects is we can send text or image messages to contacts or groups that are different from what we mean, in other words "misplaced chat" hehe ..
Well how to avoid the misplaced? If the wrong one is chat in general topic we only need to add follow-up message like, "sorry wrong send". But it will be difficult if the misplaced chat is the sensitive data such as Email password, ATM PIN, or other sensitive messages that cost you more than money.
