Earlier than folks link their WhatsApp accounts to their pc, they are going to be asked to authenticate using fingerprint or Face ID.
Facebook-owned WhatsApp is adding one other security layer for WhatsApp Web version and desktop app linking and logging in. Earlier than folks link their WhatsApp accounts to their pc, they are going to be asked to authenticate using fingerprint or Face ID.

This extra layer of security is aimed toward preventing others from linking your WhatsApp account to the pc without your presence.

WhatsApp says that the face and fingerprint authentication takes place on the user's mobile phone in a privacy-preserving way and WhatsApp can't access the biometric info saved on the handset's OS.

“This will limit the chance {that a} housemate or officemate (when we have those again) can link units to your WhatsApp account without you. This builds on our existing security measures at this time, which pop up a notice in your phone each time an Internet/Desktop login happens, and the ability to unlink units out of your phone at any time,” WhatsApp explains in an official statement.

Whatsapp says that it doesn't store biometric info, and that - by design - it can't access these particulars from a phone.

App says that this new safety layer will be available in the upcoming weeks. A visual redesign to WhatsApp Web pages on phones may even be launched in the weeks to come.
