Whatsapp has started rolling out two-step verification for its users on all platforms. The process is being tested on the beta versions of the Android app and now introduced to all users. This Whatsapp two-step verification is an optional feature to ensure security of the account.
You’ll get a code for accessing the account each time when you setup WhatApp on a different smartphone. The feature enables a six-digit passcode which should be accompanied in any attempt to verify your phone number for Whatsapp.
WhatsApp two-step verification is quite an acceptable thing for users across the board. Also this makes the least access for others to make use of your account. When you forget the account, they’ll ask for an email to be sent to them to recover it.
“Two-step verification is an optional feature that adds more security to your account. When you have two-step verification enabled, any attempt to verify your phone number on WhatsApp must be accompanied by the six-digit passcode that you created using this feature.” Whatsapp mentioned in a Blogpost.
You can enable Whatsapp two-step verification in WhatsApp Settings. Click on the ‘Account’ and choose ‘Two-step verification’. Select the ‘Enable’ and it’s done. The email will ask if they want to disable two-step verification and provide a link for that. The security feature disables when you click on it and you can access WhatsApp account.
