WhatsApp, the foundation of Facebook, has implemented another feature. Biometric user authentication can now be used on WhatsApp Web for the PC client and web interface to work.



You know that WhatsApp for PCs and browsers is not a full-fledged standalone client. That’s why WhatsApp only allows one device to be connected to an account. The desktop and browser versions of WhatsApp allow you to use the application from the web by working only with the application running on the smartphone.

You need to scan the QR code to connect and start a session on WhatsApp Web or WhatsApp for computers. So far this has been enough. However, pre-biometric authentication will now be required on Android and iPhone using a fingerprint scanner or facial recognition system. After swiping your finger, you can scan the QR code.

As you will remember, WhatsApp updated its widely talked about privacy policy on January 6, 2021. He also announced that he must accept the new terms by 8 February. After receiving a lot of negative feedback from users and criticism from the industry, the WhatsApp team decided to delay the deadline for adopting the rules until May 15 – 3 months.

We can say that after WhatsApp’s mistakes on privacy, such a feature came to the web version. We hope WhatsApp will give up this nonsense policy altogether.
