WhatsApp has announced a new security feature that adds another layer of security to your account by requiring biometric authorization when logging into a web or desktop client. The new feature has been rolled out to Android and iOS users.

Before authorizing the web / desktop client session from your main device, the app on the phone will ask you for a biometric authentication request, including face unlock. It is only after logging in that the QR code scanner appears on the screen.

It is important to note that WhatsApp does not have direct access to biometric information, the application is only allowed to use it for identification purposes.
