Whatsapp Predicted to Launch Six-Digit Passcode
More than 1 billion users all over 180 countries use WhatsApp to keep in touch with friends and family at anytime, anywhere. A smartphone without the messenger app is like a body without a soul. Nowadays the instant messaging service is rolling out many updates.
The new forecasted Whatsapp feature is to create a six-digit passcode to protect your chats. This security feature is ready to roll out soon to all the Whatsapp users. It believes that the company is working on testing this feature for creating additional security to the chats apart from end-to-end encryption.
Rumours heard that Android Authority has tipped for working on this security feature. This feature purported six-digit passcode protection. The information is spotted when in Whatsapp translation requests where the company sends to the volunteers to work on ‘ add passcode protection .’
The conversation are the text strings that sent to company asking to translate the UI and other text. Several translated from English to Dutch phrases reported include “ Enter the six-digit passcode,” “ Passcodes don’t match. Try again. ” and “ Enter a recovery email address.”
These translated phrases indicate that very soon the users may get six-digit passcode feature with an alternative option with mail recovery option if at all passcode is missed or not remembered.
It is strange when considering the e-mail for recovery to lock users accounts. It is also doubted that whether Whatsapp would keep six-digit feature as compulsory or optional.
