WhatsApp is already receiving one of the much desired features

In addition to being one of the most popular messaging applications ever, WhatsApp is also one of the most evolved over the last few months. On a constant basis, we have seen many new features coming in, which made the platform even more useful.

One of the latest features we covered was the implementation of fingerprint reader support. This new implementation arrives to add a 'layer of security' to your private messages.

WhatsApp iOS Security

While expected to see this feature reach Android smartphones first, it was the iOS version that supported Face ID and Touch ID first. So now you can protect WhatsApp on your iPhone now with this new feature. As for Android users, it certainly won't be much longer before they get this implementation too.

Privacy remains WhatsApp's biggest concern

As I mentioned in previous articles, this new feature allows you to block access to WhatsApp until identification via Touch ID or Face ID. Unfortunately, it can only be activated globally in the app, not to specific conversations.

For iOS operating system users, the feature is available from WhatsApp version 2.19.20. So if you don't have this new security feature yet, go to the App Store and confirm that you have the latest version.

This new implementation reinforces the idea that for the team responsible for creating and developing WhatsApp, user privacy always comes first.

WhatsApp Fingerprint

However, it seems that these priorities may not be shared with 'friend' Mark Zuckerberg. This is because, plans have been confirmed to come (by 2020) to merge the messaging platforms of WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook Messenger.

Although Zuckerberg has confirmed that this project will only improve the security and privacy of all platforms. WhatsApp users have already expressed their doubts about the future of popular application security.
