Whatsapp Introduces “Fingerprint Lock” Feature For Android


When it comes to instant messaging, Whatsapp is one among the few highly patronised platforms. And with each passing day, the creators look for ways to keep improving the service with new and exciting features.

Recall earlier this year, they rolled out Touch ID and Face ID for iPhone to provide an extra layer of security for WhatsApp users.

Well, it appears Android users now have  a new feature as compensation.

Whatsapp revealed via their blog that it is introducing similar authentication, allowing you to unlock the app with your fingerprint, on supported Android phones.

In order to enable this feature, simply tap Settings > Account > Privacy > Fingerprint lock. Turn on Unlock with fingerprint, and confirm your fingerprint. Voila! You’re good to go!
