This Independence Day Lock WhatsApp With your Fingerprint

Must read

From Twitter: Whatsapp has given its independence day surprise in a peculiar way. Now you have independence from people peeping in your WhatsApp messages because it will only open when your fingerprints allow it to. Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp has rolled out a feature where you will be able to unlock WhatsApp on your phone by using the fingerprint sensor on your Android device. It will be just like unlocking your Android phone using the fingerprint scanner. Although to get this feature activated on your smartphone, you need to have Android beta version 2.19.221.

This feature is now available in India.

According to Whatsapp Beta Info (WABetainfo), you will have to update your WhatsApp application to get the app if you do not see this feature. Also, this holds good to you only if you have signed up and are using the WhatsApp Android beta app.

How to enable this feature?

To enable this feature in your app, here is what you have to do:
Go to the WhatsApp Settings>Account>Privacy>Fingerprint lock, Just turn on the toggle in front of that and it will prompt you to verify it. With this feature, you only have to unlock it when you open the app, otherwise, you can attend the WhatsApp calls without unlocking the app. You can still reply to the WhatsApp messages from notification without actually entering the app.

You will also have an option to choose when they want to use the fingerprint lock feature.

More features to come

In simple words, if you unlock the app via fingerprint every time you need to reply to a message, then that can be annoying for some. Here is how you can get rid of that: choose from three options —Immediately, after 1 minute or after 30 minutes. If you choose “Immediately”, you will have to unlock the app every time you open it. iOS users will also have an additional option of 15 minutes.

WABetainfo also says that Whatsapp is currently working on the “Dark mode” feature and will roll it out in the coming three months
