Earlier this year, WhatsApp added an extra layer of privacy for iOS users when it enabled support for Touch ID and Face ID. Today, it announced Fingerprint Lock for Android. Now, WhatsApp users can unlock the app with their fingerprint on Android, too.

You'll have to enable the feature in settings and confirm your fingerprint before you use it. WhatsApp didn't say if or when it will add a face unlock feature to its Android app.
