WhatsApp’s Android users will no longer need third-party apps to keep the app. Here the latest feature of WhatsApp works.
WhatsApp will soon roll out the long-awaited feature that allows Android users to lock and unlock the app via fingerprint sensor.
As the name suggests, WhatsApp users with Android users can unlock the app via fingerprint sensor.
According to WABetainfo, users have to use fingerprints to open WhatsApp while they can still receive or reject calls if the app is closed in the background.
Users will also be able to respond to messages via notification as fingerprint authentication is only required to open the app.
WhatsApp will give users the option to choose the time when the WhatsApp app locks automatically – similar to the screen lock for phones.
Earlier this year, WhatsApp introduced fingerprint support for iPhone users.
WhatsApp also supports Face ID on compatible iPhones.
The company is unlikely to roll out the Face Unlock feature for Android users keeping in mind poor security standards.
