WhatsApp have added a new feature for Android users to be able to lock they chat with their Fingerprint, at list you can go around looking for external app to lock up your chats anymore.
If you're an Android user and you haven't seen the feature on your WhatsApp yet then you'll need to update your WhatsApp messenger right away. Apple users have had the option to lock down their WhatsApp using Face ID as an additional authentication method. While android gets the Fingerprint feature.
This changes as of today, as WhatsApp users on Android can lock their conversations behind a fingerprint. According to WhatsApp's official blog post:
  • Earlier this year, we rolled out Touch ID and Face ID for iPhone to provide an extra layer of security for WhatsApp users. Today we’re introducing similar authentication, allowing you to unlock the app with your fingerprint, on supported Android phones. To enable it, tap Settings > Account > Privacy > Fingerprint lock. Turn on Unlock with fingerprint, and confirm your fingerprint.

The feature allows WhatsApp users to hide their conversations behind the biometric authentication. It doesn’t block calls, but it does hide messages and other logs. Users can also set a timer on the automatic lock to prevent the fingerprint dialog from appearing every time they open up the application.
