WhatsApp Fingerprint Lock Now Available For Android and iOS Users




For over one year WhatsApp has been planning to introduce Fingerprint authentication to Android and iOS users, finally it's now available for all Android users. Although it's been available for WhatsApp Beta testers for quite some months now.

This feature was earlier rolled out to iPhone users in February 2019, after being announced late last year 2018. And now it's officially available for everyone to activate.

WhatsApp Fingerprint feature has been designed to add extra security measures to your private chats and your WhatsApp account as a whole.

If you activate this feature, it will require fingerprint authentication before you can have access to your WhatsApp application. Kindly note that widget content will be hidden if you activate this feature.

Although you can still answer WhatsApp calls and reply to messages from notifications since the authentication of the fingerprint is only required when you want to open the app.

How To Enable WhatsApp Fingerprint Security


  1. First of all, update your WhatsApp application to the latest version on Playstore 
  2. Now tap on Settings > Account > Privacy.
  3. You will find Fingerprint lock there.
  4. Turn on ‘Unlock with fingerprint’ option to enable the feature.
  5. Confirm it by touching the fingerprint sensor.

You can also choose to lock your WhatsApp application  ‘Immediately’, ‘After 1 minute’ or ‘After 30 minutes’.
