WhatsApp for iOS gets New Security Feature: Here’s how to Activate it

SHARE:



No one can deny that WhatsApp is the most widely used feature however it comes with a certain security issue that we come across on daily basis. After every day, we come across bugs and security issues harming the users using this social media channel. However, the tech giant never leaves its users unattended and rolls out fixes for every bug and Security lapses. A few days back, the latest WhatsApp bug was spotted that picks up random messages in the reply section of WhatsApp chats. The reason is still unknown. It seems like WhatsApp for iOS took this bug too seriously so launched a new authentication feature for all its beta users. WhatsApp Security Feature is a very good initiative however it is just for iOS.

WhatsApp Security Feature will save you from many Spams


This authentication feature is one good feature from the pool of features, WhatsApp plans to roll out for beta users in the upcoming official beta program. The new unlock feature on WhatsApp will be available in 2.19.20.19 beta update published through WhatsApp TestFlight beta program. The new update basically adds fingerprint lock to the WhatsApp application on the iPhone. To use the feature you’ll need to ensure you’re using the latest version of WhatsApp. You can check this by going to settings and pressing “help”.

When WhatsApp biometric security feature is enabled, the preview snapshot of the app will go empty and will not display anything. As right now this feature is only available to iOS users, so anyone who wants to preview new features like this should apply for the Testflight for WhatsApp. Due to huge demand, only a small number of beta testers are allowed at one time. Some people may quit the Testflight beta program, so one should keep an eye on this page.
Android users will definitely get this Authentication feature too but I guess it will take time.
