WhatsApp's Rolls Out Fingerprint Unlock Feature For Android Users



WhatsApp has finally released the fingerprint unlock feature to WhatsApp version 2.19.308 and is rolling it out to Android users. This feature is coming several months after WhatsApp made it available for iOS users.

The Facebook owned messaging service introduced this feature to iOS users which supports both Face ID and Touch ID biometric methods.

 However, WhatsApp will only make available to Android users only one biometric method which is the fingerprint unlock feature, no facial recognition. WhatsApp's reason for this is due to the lack of a wide presence of facial recognition on the Android platform.

To get this feature, head over to Google Play Store and download WhatsApp's latest version. However, you have to note that this feature is being rolled out server base which means it might not be available in your region, for now. Those who the update has reached their part of the globe will be able to make use of it.

To enable the new feature, head over to Settings > Account > Privacy > Fingerprint lock. Turn on Unlock with fingerprint, and then confirm your fingerprint.
