Lock WhatsApp account with your fingerprint (or face) on Android and iOS

Earlier this year, WhatsApp rolled out Touch ID and Face ID for iPhone to provide an extra layer of security for WhatsApp users. And now they introduce similar authentication, allowing you to unlock the app with your fingerprint, on supported Android phones.

Here’s how you can enable it:

For Android

  • Open WhatsApp.
  • Go to Settings>Account>Privacy>Fingerprint lock.
  • Turn on Unlock with Fingerprint toggle.

For iOS

  • Open WhatsApp.
  • Go to Settings>Account>Privacy>Screen lock.
  • Turn on Require Face ID.
