WhatsApp on the Web will be safer and more practical with new functionality

WhatsApp remains one of the most popular messaging platforms (and not only) for Android and iOS smartphones, being used by large millions of users every day. In addition to its applications for Android, iOS and also Windows, you can access your WhatsApp account in any browser through WhatsApp Web.

This basic version of WhatsApp has shown several improvements over the past few months, having recently received the implementation of the desired Dark Mode. However, there are still several ways to improve the experience of using this web version.

WhatsApp Web fingerprint reader

By analyzing the latest beta version of WhatsApp for Android, the WABetaInfo team finds that they are preparing to improve the security and ease of Login on WhatsApp Web. Until now it was necessary to recognize a QR code with the mobile phone, to log in to the Web version. Now, we know that soon it will be possible to do this using the fingerprint sensor.

In this way, the entire procedure necessary to start a new session on WhatsApp Web will be much more secure, practical and quick.

It is still unclear how this new feature on WhatsApp will work

In the published image we see clearly that the application is requesting authentication with the fingerprint reader to confirm that it is the user. However, it does not show any indication that it is really authentication for the Web version. This information was only advanced by the WEBetaInfo team.

Even so, even if the implementation of this functionality is confirmed under the conditions mentioned, it is not clear how the browser will receive and identify information from the smartphone so that the Login with fingerprint.

One possibility is through the indication of the phone number associated with the account, making the whole process faster. If that is the case, instead of simply recognizing the QR code, you will need to type your phone number into the browser.
