How do I add WhatsApp to my lock screen?

On some older Samsung phones, you can customize your lock screen icons.

To add the WhatsApp icon as a lock screen icon, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your home screen.
  2. Go to Settings > Lock screen > Shortcuts.
  3. Tap the ChatOn icon, and select WhatsApp from the list of applications.

The WhatsApp icon will now appear as one of the lock screen icons, instead of the ChatOn icon.
