WhatsApp fingerprint lock update
WhatsApp worked for this feature for nearly six months for Beta update. After that, nearly 3 months for the stable update. However, it’s definitely worth a wait because this feature has worked pretty fast & secure always even the application available in the recent app list.
Once the feature enabled WhatsApp authentication is linked with the device default security credentials.
Using this default WA feature here after no need for separate app lock application for locking the WhatsApp messenger.
How to Enable?
Firstly, update the WhatsApp application via Google Play store. After that, head into Settings > Account > Privacy and there you’ll find a new option at last so-called Fingerprint lock.
- After that, confirm to enable the fingerprint option by placing your fingerprint on the sensor.
- [edited] Similarly, fingerprint recognition is based on Android API settings. So, it not accepts fake fingerprints. Also, if you used the wrong fingerprint too many times it shows error message to try after 30 seconds.
If continue doing same mistakes continuously, WhatsApp temporarily disabled the fingerprint sensor. And you can’t open the WhatsApp application. To re-open WhatsApp you need to disable the phone fingerprint default settings. To do that, mobile password is needed so, this privacy feature is one of the best in WhatsApp in my opinion.
- Finally, after the all updates WhatsApp will started working with the WhatsApp fingerprint lock update. Upon using this feature a while it gives the great, great user experience to access.
Meanwhile, it has working fast & secure even the application runs in background or minimized in the recent application. In 2019, this latest WhatsApp fingerprint lock feature is one of the best privacy control for WhatsApp users.
