Technology Inceptions

WhatsApp has finally made available fingerprint lock feature for Android beta users, after making it available to iOS users for a while now. It comes with the latest Android beta version 2.19.221, and is disabled by default. Users will need to enable it in Settings, and this feature will allow users to add a layer of protection to their app chats. There's also a new ‘show content in notifications' option added allowing users to decide if they want to show or hide message.It is disabled by default, and users will have to enable it by going to WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy > Fingerprint lock. If you have already updated to the latest version, and don't see the feature, try backing up chat history and reinstalling the same WhatsApp version.When enabled, users will need to use fingerprint authentication to unlock WhatsApp and gain access. Notably, the feature requires the phone to havea fingerprint scanner.
