WhatsApp has launched the fingerprint lock option for Android phones. The new feature allows users to lock the app via fingerprint sensors.
WhatsApp fingerprint lock security feature is available in version 2.19.222 of the Android WhatsApp app, and it gives Android users a security option that is more in line with what is available in the iOS version of the app.
If you have WhatsApp on your Android device (which is given in 2019) and have extended its access to other people, you should enable it immediately to secure your conversations. If you are wondering how to do so, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it easily.
Here’s how to enable fingerprint lock!
Before you begin, you should ensure two things. Firstly, you should update your WhatsApp app to the latest version from the Google Play Store. Secondly, your phone should have registered fingerprints for unlocking via the fingerprint sensor.

4. Scroll down and turn on Unlock with fingerprint, and confirm your fingerprint.
You can also choose how long WhatsApp should wait before it locks either immediately, after a minute, or after 30 minutes.
