Finally, we don’t have to rely on any third-party apps to use fingerprint lock feature, which really doesn’t work well and those apps can reveal your WhatsApp chats to anyone. So Facebook-owned WhatsApp was working to bring the Fingerprint Lock security feature and they were testing it on the WhatsApp Beta version. Now it’s available for everyone and to use it update to the latest version from Google Playstore.
Initially, the feature of locking the app with Touch ID or Face ID came to iOS devices. Though it’s not confirmed that the face unlock feature will be integrated with WhatsApp or not. The steps to enable the feature is given in detail below:
- Tap on the ‘three-dot menu’ on the top right corner
- Next click on ‘Settings’
- Tap on ‘Account’ and then tap on ‘Privacy’
- Scroll down and select ‘Fingerprint Lock’
- Toggle on ‘Unlock with Fingerprint’
- Set your fingerprint and you are done.
