Why WhatsApp should use Touch ID to protect your chats

WhatsApp is our favorite messaging app, but despite its popularity, it is far from being the best. Apart from many features that Mark Zuckerberg's application should improve this year, we believe that WhatsApp should incorporate an additional layer of security by implementing Touch ID or Face ID to block the app and certain sections.

And the end of the day, the conversations we have in WhatsApp are private and accessing them is not too complicated : either because the iPhone is unlocked or just by keeping an eye on the iPhone screen even if it is blocked. So in WABetaInfo have developed the renewed interface incorporating this functionality and the truth, I hope WhatsApp takes note and will carry it out as soon as possible.

Protect the chats 

The first images of the Touch ID application to WhatsApp can not be more useful: we could select which chats - both individual and group - we want to protect with our fingerprint and from that moment, both to write, see messages of that conversation or mentions, we would have to put our finger on the reader. In case the Touch ID failed, it would touch to enter the pin.

In the version proposed by WABetaInfo, the chats protected with Touch ID have a special identifier: a yellow background.

Protect certain functions 

The next use of the Touch ID would be for example to make some changes to the configuration , we should enter the footprint: What we want to delete the history of the chats, add a new state of WhatsApp or read the QR code of the screen of another device to use WhatsApp Web? Well, I would touch using Touch ID to do it. The same thing could happen if we want to see the call history or the contact list.

In this way, WhatsApp would be a much safer application that would allow us to enjoy truly protected conversations and also enjoy an extra level of security when modifying the features.
