WhatsApp Set To Roll Out Fingerprint Feature On The App

WhatsApp needs no introduction in today's world as the popular instant messaging app is used by billions of people around the world.

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is working on a way to login to your WhatsApp account via fingerprint authentication on Android. This is something that is already available on other  related apps like Telegram for a while now and it is great that they are working on it.

They are testing a new feature section under Privacy which is called Authentication and this is where you can decide whether you want to login via your fingerprint or not. When you enable it, it shows the popup below when you want to access your WhatsApp.

The image above also shows that in the case where you are not able to login to your WhatsApp via fingerprint, you can use your device credentials instead. Device credentials here could be the pin you use when you can’t login via y our fingerprint.

The feature is still at it early stage which they  might be release very soon on Marshmallow and other latest version of Android devices.
