If you use the WhatsApp for iPhone, you can now use FACE ID and Touch Support on WhatsApp to unlock your device.
A really fantastic updated has received WhatsApp for iPhone. This build version 2.19.20 ensures that your WhatsApp is adequately locked until you use either your Touch ID or Face ID to unlock the device.
This new feature has been anticipated since October, 2018 and has finally arrived. It began when a new authentication addition was added to the iPhone which works similarly to the way you can lock signal on your iPhone. However, this new addition does not lock individual WhatsApp conversations but simply the whole app at once.
We also anticipate that within the coming months, we will see this biometric authentication feature on the WhatsApp for Android.
