Facebook has recently rolled out the fingerprint lock feature for WhatsApp in few countries like India. And now, you can use the native fingerprint lock to keep your WhatsApp secure and private.

The feature was already available in some countries, as one of my cousins was already using it in UAE.

How to enable native fingerprint to lock on WhatsApp


To enable the fingerprint to lock on your WhatsApp, you don’t have to set up a new one, since it uses the native one that you have set on your mobile phone.

All you have to do is enable it from the settings area of WhatsApp. We can follow the steps mentioned below.

Go to the settings area of WhatsApp, then tap on Account, which is the first option on the screen.

We will find Privacy the first option on the next screen, tapping on which will open a few more options related to Privacy.

The fingerprint lock feature would be at the bottom of the screen, which is disabled by default. Tap on it, and select the time it will take to lock WhatsApp.

The options are

  • Immediately
  • After 1 minute
  • After 30 minutes

You also have the option to hide or display content in the lock screen.

The fingerprint lock feature in WhatsApp adds an extra layer of privacy to WhatsApp, which is is the primary mode of communication for the majority of the people since the app is used by more than 1 billion people worldwide.

I don’t prefer adding a lock in any of my apps, but I know people who you do.

The new fingerprint lock feature on WhatsApp will not only increase the Privacy of users, but it will also work as a security measure when and Whatsapp pay officially launches in India.

It is exciting to see that WhatsApp is bringing new features to WhatsApp, but the users are still waiting for the dark mode to be rolled out.

If you are also waiting for the dark mode, we have written a detailed article about a workaround that will allow you to use dark mode on WhatsApp right now.
