The new feature appears to be an attempt from WhatsApp to make the software more secure overall. The feature is available for WhatsApp iOS version 2.19.20 and users can update their app to use it. The folks over at WhatsApp have chose to add an extra layer of security for those using the app and allow them to lock the app behind Face ID or Touch ID. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family.
If the Touch ID or Face ID fails in authenticating the user, it will ask them to input the passcode for their app to gain access. WhatsApp for Android is also in the rumours to bring a similar form of authentication layer in the coming future.
The feature was launched for iOS beta users last week, and has now rolled out to iOS users across the world.
