Fingerprint lock authentication is headed to WhatsApp and will be soon available on Android devices-the company started.
Reportedly, the development work on the authentication feature is currently in work. However, there is no current timeline for the release of the feature, but it is in the works.
The messaging App is introducing the feature to protect its users’ chat from being seen by others.
In order to open their chats, users will need to provide fingerprint authentication like many individuals do to unlock their devices.
WhatsApp will also reportedly introduce the feature on IOS in the future, that will support two biometric features: the Face and Touch ID.
In order to activate the feature once it’s released, you will have to do the following: Settings > Account > Privacy.
Once the feature is enabled, WhatsApp will be completely protected, and no one will be able to access your chats.
