WhatsApp Tip: Want to keep your chats private from your naughty cousin? Here’s how to activate Face ID on WhatsApp

WhatsApp is a popular messaging app in India, and its use has skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic. When you give your phone to a mischievous cousin, he or she may begin reading your WhatsApp chats and opening your gallery, further inspecting photos and videos.

Looking at the law, it is clear that opening a chat without a person’s consent is not recommended. However, people make mistakes from time to time.

If other family members use your phone and you have many personal chats that you want to keep private, there is a special trick for you. If you use this trick, you can easily give your phone to anyone and be confident that no one will be able to read your messages.

Step 3: Select ‘Privacy’ and tap on ‘Screen lock’.

Step 4: Now, turn on ‘Touch ID or Face ID’ whatever you need.

Step 5: Then, select the length of time WhatsApp can be on standby mode before it is prompted for Touch ID or Face ID.
