As an added security measure, users of the WhatsApp desktop app will now be able to activate a password to protect their chats. It is a function that the platform already enabled in its mobile version three years ago, for Android and iOS systems.

It is not a news that one of the main features for WhatsApp users is privacy, so requiring a password to enter the application is something that attracts the attention of all those who use the desktop version. Especially if the computer is shared with other people, either at home or in the workplace.

Also, the password will not be shared with WhatsApp: it is always saved locally. In case you lose your password, you need to log out of the app and log back in to WhatsApp Desktop by linking your device with the QR code.

As with the smartphone app, enabling this feature would be optional. It is also expected that users have control over the frequency with which the password is requested to enter the chats and that other elements are developed, such as using the fingerprint instead of a password on computers that allow it.
