Here’s how you can include an additional layer of security on the WhatsApp app on your iPhone.

WhatsApp app users with iPhones would now be able to include an extra layer of security on the messaging application. The latest recent refresh to WhatsApp for iOS brings support for locking and opening the application through Face ID and Touch ID.

Spotted by 9to5, the feature is available to iPhone users with the WhatsApp form, 2.19.20. The update is available via Apple’s App Store.

iPhone clients can at present review the messages from WhatsApp notifications and even fast answer yet full functionalities will be accessible after the authentication. Different highlights, for example, ability to answer to voice and video calls can be gotten to without expecting to unlock the application.

To add Face ID or Touch ID on WhatsApp app for iOS, here’s what you need to do.

  • Step 1 Open WhatsApp. Go to Settings.

  • Step 2 Choose Account and tap on Privacy

  • Step 3 Toggle the button to enable Screen Lock.

The feature is yet to take off for Android users yet has been a part of the ongoing beta renditions. As per an ongoing report, WhatsApp app for Android clients can include the security layer through the fingerprint sensor. It’s highly unlikely Face ID support will come to Android phones considering the poor security standards.
