The WhatsApp mobile app is expected to welcome more than welcome new features in the coming months. For example, users might be able to sign in to a single account with multiple devices. Convenient to take better advantage of your messaging. Because to this day, your profile is linked to your phone and SIM card, that’s it. But recent findings point to future change.

Finished The QR Code ?

Already at the origin of the aforementioned indiscretion, the WABetaInfo site is putting the cover back after discovering another reference in a new beta of the application: this one concerns the web version of the platform. To connect, the user must scan a QR Code displayed on their computer screen using their phone’s camera. To do this, all he has to do is click on the WhatsApp Web tab of his mobile application.

While the web version of messaging can come in handy to avoid constantly juggling your mobile device and your laptop, the process to take advantage of it can be tedious in the long run with recurring maneuvers. Worse, it is not completely secure. If your smartphone is stolen, and, hypothetically, unlocked, then the thief would be able to log into your account.

For When ? Mystery

That’s why the Facebook subsidiary wants to integrate an additional layer of security through fingerprint authentication. The project seems to be under development within the company’s teams, and would allow access to the web version of the service in a much faster and more convenient way. While providing enhanced security if the fingerprint becomes the standard for accessing the web version.
