Users will see options to unlock WhatsApp immediately, after one minute, after 15 minutes or after one hour. To benefit from the new security feature, simply head to Settings / Account / Privacy and make sure to enable Screen Lock. Depending on your phone, you can either use the old Touch ID or the newer Face ID method.
