This new feature enables WhatsApp users to access their accounts securely without the need for traditional passwords.

Instead of relying on the conventional method of entering a password or dealing with SMS two-factor authentication, Android users can now unlock and access their WhatsApp accounts using their device's facial recognition, fingerprint scanner, or a personal PIN.

Meta, the parent company of WhatsApp, recently made the announcement on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), revealing that the passkey feature is now available to all Android users. This move follows Google's initiative, which prompted users to create passkeys for added security.

While WhatsApp had been testing passkeys in its beta channel, this feature is now being rolled out to regular users of the Android app. The availability of passkeys for iOS users and other details have not been confirmed by Meta at this time.
