WhatsApp Now Supports Two-Step Verfication


WhatsApp adds another layer of security in it’s app, adds two-step verification feature, now you can protect your account with both your phone number and email. This feature was under beta testing for months and now it has come out of testing stage. 

To enable this feature head over to your WhatsApp Settings > Account > Two-step verification > Enable. You can also disable this feature by just adding your email address in the given field. 

Here’s what Whatsapp says:

If you have two-step verification enabled, your number will not be permitted to reverify on WhatsApp within 7 days of last using WhatsApp without your passcode. Thus, if you forget your own passcode, but did not provide an email to disable two-step verification, even you will not be permitted to reverify on WhatsApp within 7 days of last using WhatsApp.

After these 7 days, your number will be permitted to reverify on WhatsApp without your passcode, but you will lose all pending messages upon reverifying – they will be deleted. If your number is reverified on WhatsApp after 30 days of last using WhatsApp, and without your passcode, your account will be deleted and a new one will be created upon successfully reverifying.

This feature will secure any unauthorized access to your WhatsApp account, the update is now live and you can download the latest version of the app from the below Play Store link.
