WhatsApp is working on adding fingerprint security for new web sessions. The latest beta fixes the recently used emoji issue



According to reports, WhatsApp is working on a new feature that will allow users to secure a new WhatsApp web session using their fingerprint. This is to improve the overall security of your chats and prevent others from creating new web sessions without your knowledge. This new feature was developed in the latest beta. The new WhatsApp for Android update also fixes a bug that caused recently used emojis to be deleted every time an update was installed in the app.

WABetaInfo has investigated the latest beta version of WhatsApp 2.20.200.10 for Android to determine that the instant messaging platform offers the possibility for users to confirm the creation of a new WhatsApp web session using their fingerprint. The main purpose of this feature is to increase the privacy and security of users and ensure that no one is secretly creating a new session when you are temporarily using your phone. The tracker says WhatsApp is currently working on implementing the feature and it will be available in a future update. This means you may not be able to spot it even if you are using the latest update.

The latest beta update for WhatsApp 2.20.200.1

0 for Android also brings bug fixes for an issue with recently used emojis that plagued several versions after 2.20.200. The bug deleted all recently used emojis every time a WhatsApp update was installed. This bug has reportedly been fixed in the beta version of WhatsApp 2.20.200.10 for Android.

With the latest beta version of WhatsApp 2.20.200.6 for Android a few days ago, a new sticker pack called Usagyuuun was added to the app’s standard sticker list. This animated sticker pack was created by Quan Inc and is available to all new beta users on Android. This pack has a white cartoon character depicting feelings of joy, fear, sadness, love and much more. According to reports, WhatsApp is also working on creating a new wallpaper area with the ability to set different wallpapers for different chats.
