MESSAGE LOCKING IS NOT A FEATURE
Accordingly, iPhone users will be able to access WhatsApp again by using FaceID, TouchID or phone passcode with the Passkey feature. Contrary to popular belief, this passkey feature is not an application and message locking feature.
This feature is activated when you delete your WhatsApp account from your phone for some reason. Normally, when you open a WhatsApp account, it is possible to set up WhatsApp again with the help of an SMS. However, it will be possible to create a passkey with the WhatsApp iOS Passkey feature against theft attempts. iPhone users will be able to use this passkey feature with PIN code, FaceID or TouchID.
