WhatsApp starts working on Touch ID security feature for Android users
WabetaInfo reports the latest beta version of WhatsApp includes the so-called Touch ID feature.
With the new security feature, WhatsApp users will be able to authenticate using their fingerprint. A new fingerprint option has been added under the Privacy tab and it works just like on iOS. Once it's enabled, WhatsApp will ask for your fingerprint every time you open the app.
If for some reason your phone doesn't correctly detect your fingerprint, you'll be able to open WhatsApp using the device credentials. Obviously, the new feature will require a fingerprint sensor and Android Marshmallow or newer versions of the OS.
