DURBAN - Popular messaging app WhatsApp now has a feature that allows users to lock their chats behind its own security checks according to My Broadband.
Although WhatsApp does provide support for end to end encryption this cannot stop a person from accessing your WhatsApp messages if they have physical access to your smartphone.
For this reason, WhatsApp allows users to lock their chats with this new feature.iOS
A biometric security feature for iPhones was launched recently by WhatsApp. This feature makes the process of locking easy due to Face ID or Touch ID being used for authentication when accessing the messaging app.
The locking feature on iOS can be activated by going to your Settings then tapping on Account and then tap on Privacy on WhatsApp. Then the user must enable the Screen Lock feature.
