This way the chats of the user would be protected and the user would only be able to unlock them using his own fingerprints. This would be more like a device unlocking system through the use of fingerprints. The feature would be initially introduced for the Android users and later on the same would evolve for iOS as well. However, as for now the wait period is in between and soon the feature would be applicable using the privacy setting of the application through the app.
