WhatsApp for iOS adds Screen Lock feature

WhatsApp for iPhone Gets Face ID Touch ID Biometric Authentication WhatsApp finally has the feature requested by many iPhone users

It is worth noting that in case WhatsApp is not able to authenticate with the help of Face ID and Touch ID then users can use the passcode for their device to unlock the app.

WhatsApp for iOS has been updated to include support for Touch ID or Face ID to unlock the app. The update is available via Apple's App Store.

WhatsApp is among the most popular messaging service in the world.

You can enable Screen Lock in WhatsApp on iPhone by going to Settings - Account - Privacy.

Once unlocked after successfully detecting the correct biometrics - either through Face ID or Touch ID feature - the instant messaging app opens access to all your messages. This is useful to keep your sensitive chat messages safe especially when you pass the phone to someone for a short while. This new update will allow you to protect your private messages from others.

They can be used to lock the app itself, not individual conversations.

iPhone users can still preview the messages from WhatsApp notifications and even quick reply but full functionalities will be available after the authentication.
