A new day and another WhatsApp Beta update. This time, the latest update has said that WhatsApp will be adding support for passkeys in the iOS application

Passkeys had already been added to Android devices in October of last year. However support for iPhones was not available. However, with this update it appears that we will soon be able to integrate passkeys into WhatsApp on iOS.

According to the WABetaInfo report that the most recent WhatsApp Beta version for iOS offers a glimpse at the screen to set up passkeys within the iOS application. This suggests that we could be able to support passkeys within the iOS app soon.

If you’re not aware, Passkeys utilize biometrics such as the Face ID system or Touch ID to let you securely log in with the WhatsApp account without having to ask for a six-digit code. The login process smooth and reduces the possibility of your account being compromised.

The image above illustrates the screen for setting up to set up the Passkey feature on WhatsApp available for iOS. Users are able to create it or continue using the normal passcode procedure if they prefer. 

Passkeys are able to be disabled at any time through the settings. If you wish to access the device on which passkeys aren’t available and you need to get a six-digit number.

So, users don’t have to change to a method of logging in they don’t wish to. However, we would recommend switching to Passkeys because it’s safer and X (formerly Twitter) adopted this feature on iOS It can also assist you in signing in when you’re unable to get the login code.

As previously mentioned this feature is currently in development. It is not clear at this point a date on when it will finally see dawn of the day. 

It is likely to be sooner than later. For someone who’s already switched to Passkeys for most of my apps running on Android we are very excited about their inclusion in WhatsApp, the iOS Version of WhatsApp.
