Whatsapp for Android Gets Fingerprint Unlock: Learn how to activate it easily

Whatsapp has finally added another level of security to chat messages with fingerprint unlock. Its good news for the android user as iOS users are enjoying fingerprint ID & face ID unlock features from over one month. Fingerprint unlock already rolled out to the beta users last month; now it’s available for every user.


Fingerprint unlock has added quite a level of security, but Twitterati doesn’t seem to be happy with this move. They are literally begging for Dark mode which is a trending feature. But Dark Mode is not coming in the near month to WhatsApp.

Wrapping Up

There is a third party app which does the same task, but builtin fingerprint unlock feature is still a treat to many users. If you don’t use any third-party app for locking the apps, then go try it.
