How to enable WhatsApp fingerprint lock

WhatsApp has rolled out an important security feature.

Users can now secure WhatsApp by enabling fingerprint lock.

Here is how to enable fingerprint lock.

Go to Settings.

Scroll down and select “Fingerprint lock”.

On the next screen, enable “unlock with fingerprint” option.

You can set automatic locking immediately, after 1 minute or after 30 minutes.

You can enable the “show content in notification” to enable preview messages while what’s app is locked. You can also receive calls on WhatsApp while locked.




Too many failed attempts to unlock whatsapp can lock you out for certain amount of time. In this case, deactivate the fingerprint lock from your phone’s settings.
