WhatsApp now allows you to lock your app with a fingerprint or a Face-ID on android and iOS devices. WhatsApp enabled this setting for iOS back in February, and yesterday it rolled it out for Android phones.

You won’t need to register your face or fingerprint again when you’re using this function. WhatsApp will rely on the system-based biometric authentication.

When you enable this option, you’ll be required to authenticate yourself using Face ID every time you open WhatsApp. The steps below describe how to enable this with Face ID; if you have Touch ID on your phone, the procedure is the same.

Note: If the fingerprint lock option is not showing on your device, go to playstore and update your whatsapp app.
