Whats App has introduced the latest version 2 .19 .22 for an iPhone which repairs the recently discovered bug that able anyone to sidestep the Touch ID or Face ID screen lock .
The latest upgrade brings additional features , bug fixes or improvements . It is strongly recommended that you immediately update the app since a significant bug is allowing customers to bypass the privacy feature where users secured their WhatsApp account with Touch ID or Face ID .
Earlier WhatsApp was accessible without the need of Touch ID or Face ID. This security system fails only when users select any other option apart from “immediately” as It does not work if it is set to immediately.
A user named “u/de_X_ter” had earlier wrote a Reddit post detailing the problem and Reuters verified the bug. WhatsApp later confirmed the bug in a statement and promised to release a fix soon. That fix is now available in the App Store.
