There is a feature in these updates through which you will be able to secure WhatsApp chat through fingerprint lock. This feature has become available for many Android and iPhone models.

Currently, the WhatsApp lock feature has been made available for Touch ID and Face ID, and for some Android users, the beta program has also received this update. Today we are telling you how you can make your WhatsApp chat secure.
