Whatsapp Adding Extra Security To Whatsapp Web

WhatsApp adds another layer of security for the WhatsApp Web app and desktop. Before users can connect their WhatsApp accounts to their devices, they will be asked to verify using their fingerprints or Iris scanner.

This additional security layer aims to prevent others from connecting the WhatsApp account to a computer without you. WhatsApp claims that face and finger authentication occurs on the mobile phone of the user in a manner that maintains privacy and that WhatsApp does not have access to biometric information stored in the handset operating system. WhatsApp has claimed that it is including an extra layer of security to its mobile system to prevent malicious use of WhatsApp on desktops. To connect a WhatsApp Web to a WhatsApp account, users will now have to use face or finger unlocking on the phone. Once the step is done, users can open the QR code scanner from the phone, which will help them to finish the process of connecting to the desktop. This new update has the ability to disable the device anytime.

The app claims that it does not store biometric data and that - by default - cannot access that information from the phone's operating system. WhatsApp says the new protection list will be launched in the upcoming weeks. Visual redesign of WhatsApp Web pages on phones will also be launched in the upcoming weeks. WhatsApp has been at the center of controversy over a privacy policy review in which it forces users to agree to the new terms or disable them if they are not approved. This created a lot of noise among users, forcing people to move to different platforms such as Signal and Telegram. The company has already withdrawn its privacy policy renewal and has set a new date.
