WhatsApp has around 125 crores users in all over the world at present, while WhatsApp has close to 24 crores users in India. From time to time, WhatsApp keeps launching new features and changes in the old features to facilitate its users. In this row, WhatsApp is constantly trying to get users the best security on WhatsApp.

To give users more security on the WhatsApp, now WhatsApp has introduced a new finger print lock feature. With the help of this feature, WhatsApp can be lock and unlock with a fingerprint scanner. However, the company has already launched it as Touch ID for iPhone users. For your information, let you know that this feature is currently available in the beta version for Android users.

After activating this feature, you can decide for yourself how long you have to lock WhatsApp. To do this, you will get three options over there; Immediate, 1 minute or 30 minutes.

The question that always arises in your mind is why WhatsApp launches every new update on the beta version first. So for your information, let you know that WhatsApp rolls out its final and stable version only after testing the update on beta version for a few days. This is why, because it does not cause users to complain of any bug. WhatsApp launched its beta program a few years ago.

However, to activate this feature on iOS, first of all users have to keep in mind that 2.19.20 version of WhatsApp should be installed in iPhone.
