These days WhatsApp introduced added security for iPhone owners.
Starting with the version WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20 for iOS, users have the opportunity block access to the application even if iPhone is unlocked. What does that help? It is very simple. This will avoid it unauthorized access to WhatsApp conversations, in the scenario where I give someone the device unlocked. When the WhatsApp application will open, Touch ID or Face ID authentication will be required to open conversations. If they do not match the identity of the device owner, WhatsApp Messenger will remain stuck in a white screen.
