To benefit from the new security feature, simply head to Settings / Account / Privacy and make sure to enable Screen Lock. The app leverages the Face ID or Touch ID feature on your phone to lock the app.

The description for the new update on the App Store reads: "You can now require Face ID or Touch ID to unlock WhatsApp".

WhatsApp is among the most popular messaging service in the world.

Once unlocked after successfully detecting the correct biometrics - either through Face ID or Touch ID feature - the instant messaging app opens access to all your messages.

If you were anxious about others accessing your WhatsApp activity, especially on devices that you might share with children or friends, then all you have to do to secure those chats is to update the WhatsApp to the newest version. This means the latest development doesn't lock your WhatsApp chats on an individual basis. A fingerprint authentication feature appears to be under development for Android and it could be released in the coming update. Messages will still be partially visible via notifications, and they can still be quick-replied to.
