You Will Now Need Biometric Authentification to Spy on Someone’s WhatsApp via Web

spy on someone's whatsapp

A quick WhatsApp web configuration would up until yesterday give you access to someone’s WhatsApp by simply scanning a QR code on any pc.

Now, to address the issue and help users who sometimes get their WhatsApp information compromised when their QR Code is scanned without their knowledge, Whatsapp is rolling out an extra security feature for Whatsapp web or desktop users.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the company said that Whatsapp users can now add extra security features before linking devices. Users can choose between face and fingerprint unlock to authorize the link.

On iPhone, the feature will work on all devices operating iOS 14 and above with Touch ID or Face ID, while on Android, it will work on any device compatible with Biometric Authentication (Face Unlock, Fingerprint Unlock, or Iris Unlock).
