Facebook Messenger tests blocking via Face ID and Touch ID

Soon Facebook Messenger users will be able to block their curious eyes from accessing their inbox, resuming access through Face ID or Touch ID on iOS.

The novelty, which is already available on WhatsApp, is being tested by the company and should reach all users through a future update.

As with WhatsApp, it will be possible to configure whether authentication will always be required when opening the app or will only be required after some time without using it, a period that can vary from 1 minute to 1 hour.

The bad part is that unfortunately, the block does not work in individual conversations – that is, blocking and unblocking reveal or prevent access to all chats at the same time.

At the moment, only a few users have access to the configuration in the iOS app, but the number of recipients with the feature is expected to increase in the coming days.

We still don’t know for sure when Facebook intends to release this novelty to everyone, but considering that it is already in the testing phase, it probably won’t be long.
