Earlier last year, WhatsApp rolled out Touch ID and Face ID for iPhone to provide an extra layer of security for WhatsApp users. A similar authentication, allowing them to unlock the app with fingerprint, on supported Android phones would follow.

The messaging company is currently working on a feature that would enable its users to set a self-destruct time limit for the messages they send to their friends. Meaning after the elapse of the set time, the messages sent would disappear completely as if they never existed.
