New WhatsApp update: Soon, use your fingerprints to lock chats; here's how

Soon, you will no longer require locker apps or phone pin to keep WhatsApp locked from prying eyes.

The FAQ section of WhatsApp also says that the messenger does not have any inbuilt password system in the app.

As often is the case, for security and privacy, many users tend to use third-party app locking applications, which are said to be unsafe – many have been reported as malware or adware in the past.

“After working to implement Face ID and Touch ID features on iOS (that aren’t available yet for development reasons), WhatsApp has finally started to work on the Authentication feature on Android, using your Fingerprint!” said a report by WABetainfo.

according to the screengrabs obtained by WABetaInfo, the biometric lock inside WhatsApp will be featured under the Privacy settings.

Besides the biometric authentication, WhatsApp is also working on new features; one of them is the improved audio messages.
