Slowly and with good handwriting, WhatsApp continues to gradually incorporate functionalities and improvements that elevate the user experience of a platform that has long been the market leader in instant messaging apps. In recent times we have seen interesting features arrive, such as the one that is now preparing to take a new step forward, the version of WhatsApp for the browser.

WhatsApp Web has been around for a long time, although it still has many aspects to polish. One of them, that of opening the session in the browser, still has room for improvement and it seems that this is what WhatsApp is working on at the moment. It has just been leaked that the courier giant prepares the compatibility of the login with our fingerprint.

Fingerprint instead of QR, or in addition to

We are already more than used to use the fingerprint reader of our mobile phone for a multitude of functions. From authorizing mobile payments to verifying our identity in multiple services, including also those that give us access to the phone at startup or to certain folders and protected apps.

According to WABetaInfo, an inexhaustible source of leaks on what is to come to WhatsApp, the app is already working on a new system, or a system with more options, so that we can log in to the browser with our account. Let’s remember that right now we have to scan a QR code with our mobile phone, but that could change soon.

The function is still under development

The leak tells us that the app already hides the test code that would allow you to log in using the fingerprint reader. We would put our finger on the screen and authorize the login in the browser, or maybe even in other devices (hello, iPad and other tablets). The operation is not yet detailed.

We do not know how we will provide our login data in the browser or the other device so that WhatsApp relates the authorization request with our mobile phone, it will probably be something that we will soon discover. We will be attentive when this functionality is released for all users. But yes, it seems that we can prepare for that logging into WhatsApp Web becomes, at best, more enjoyable.
