WhatsApp announced earlier this year that it was also launching the fingerprint locking on iOS on the Android app. Android users will be able to use their fingerprints to open the app as part of the feature.
In the meantime, it is not yet clear which regions the feature will be released in. However, once the feature is released, users will be able to access fingerprint locking through the app’s Privacy settings. Let’s add that users can choose to lock the screen immediately in 1 minute or 30 minutes as part of the options offered in the settings.
This feature, which has been in beta testing for Android since August, can please many users. On the other hand, it is thought that the use of the feature may be limited compared to iOS. Because whatsApp’s fingerprint locking feature supports both Touch ID and Face ID on iOS, Android users will only be able to benefit from fingerprint locking.
