Lock WhatsApp with Touch or Face ID on your iPhone

Latest WhatsApp update for iOS makes the app more secure

WhatsApp has become even more secure than ever before on the iOS app on your iPhone.

Depending on which iPhone you have, will depend on how you can protect your WhatsApp, as the new WhatsApp update will use either Face ID or Touch ID.

Make sure you update to the latest version if you haven't already. The update you'll need is version 2.19.20. Head to App Store to update your app.

This new handy security feature is not enabled by default. To enable it, head over to the Account Settings option within the WhatsApp app, then select Privacy.

Be careful of notifications, though. If you have previews turned on so you can see messages on your iPhone lock screen, you'll still be able to reply to messages and answer WhatsApp calls, without needing to unlock the app.

This brand new second layer of security is only available on iOS and not yet on Android. Although, this feature could be arriving on Android devices in the near future.
