There is always a worry in the minds of WhatsApp users. Lest any other person read their private chat. Information has been received that there are preparations to introduce fingerprint authentication feature on the world’s most popular messaging app WhatsApp. This will provide protection to the user’s private chats. Once activated, users will need authentication every time they open the app. Recently, information was revealed that this instant messaging service owned by Facebook is bringing this feature in iPhone also. Both biometric authentication methods will work in iPhone – Face ID and Touch ID. It appears that this feature will not be limited to just iPhone. Android users will get fingerprint authentication, but not face recognition.

The fingerprint authentication feature will be available in the app under Settings > Account > Privacy.

Once the fingerprint feature is activated, it will be very difficult for any other person to view your WhatsApp. If seen, the phones are already protected with fingerprint authentication. This feature does not seem very useful for them.

The report says, “Users will have to provide their identity to open WhatsApp (from app icon, notifications and external pickers). This will protect the entire app. This feature is not used to protect any specific chat window. Will be able to go.”

The report says that this feature will be available in the future for all those Android users who use Android Marshmallow or any later Android version.
