Whatsapp is the one of most popular messages service available on the internet and we use this instant messaging app for Video calling, Voice calls and messages which we want to protect with password or fingerprint.
Everyone wants privacy and don’t want to share messages, voice notes, etc. sometimes your family or friend asked you unlock your mobile phone to check your new mobile, its features camera, etc and you can’t say no but on the other hand you also need privacy for your many apps and data. In this case, you need a password to protect or fingerprint your apps to get rid of this situation.
There are many Android operating systems custom skins which are offered built-in fingerprint features such as Fun Touch OS, Color OS, EMUI, MIUI, etc. but all the devices don’t have these operating system.
