If you are always looking to protect the information on your phone with passwords and passwords, now you can add a new barrier to your conversations via WhatsApp . You can now block Android access to the app through your fingerprint (before it was only available for iPhone), you only need to install version 2.19.231.
This identity validation is extra to those already known that block the cell phone screen, since it works for the application in a timely manner, beyond the screen being unlocked. In other words, even if WhatsApp is blocked you can answer calls, for example.
The way to activate it is to go to Account> Privacy> Fingerprint lock. Then you must mark in what time it is blocked: immediately, in 1 minute or after 30 minutes. Then you can enable message notifications to be seen, without entering into the application.
A measure that many users had been requesting from Zuckerberg and it is already working.
