How to enable fingerprint lock feature on WhatsApp for Android

After almost 11 months since WhatsApp rolled out FaceID or TouchID for iOS, the same added layer of security has now been officially added for Android users. To clarify, this layer of protection is there to open the application rather than for individual chats.

Due to this feature, WhatsApp users will be able to add their fingerprint on supported Android phones as an authentication tool to access the instant messaging app. If you are wondering how to enable this latest WhatsApp feature, follow these steps:
  • Open WhatsApp
  • Tap on the three dot icon on the top right corner to access more options
  • Tap on Settings
  • Tap on Account
  • Tap on Privacy
  • Scroll down to ‘Fingerprint lock’ and tap on it
  • Turn on ‘Unlock with fingerprint sensor’
  • Once you do, it will ask you to ‘confirm fingerprint’
  • Once you do, it will give you an option to select when you want your Android device to ask for the fingerprint.
There are three options: immediately, after 1 minute, after 30 minutes. Right below this, you will also get an option to turn on ‘Show content in notifications’ which if enabled will allow you to preview message text inside new message notifications.

To recall, the same feature was spotted in the beta version of the app back in August and within two months has been rolled out to all Android users with the stable version.

Even though for iPhones, WhatsApp rolled out authentication support in terms of both TouchID or FaceID, Android users have only got fingerprint lock support so far. No leaks suggest that the Facebook-owned instant messaging platform is working on rolling face unlock support for Android as well.
