At this point, when you try to reopen WhatsApp within the configured rules, you will have to go through the Touch or Face ID authentication process. It’s important to remember that, even with this setting, you will continue to receive WhatsApp notifications, and you can even reply to them without having to unlock the application.

Presently, this feature is only available to iOS users while Andriod community would have to wait for their share of the cake.
