WhatsApp Two-Step Verification

WhatsApp Two-Step Verification is Out for all Users

WhatsApp Two-Step Verification is rolling out to all users running the app on the Android, iOS and Window Phone. The aim is to add an additional layer of security to its 1.2 billion users.

Facebook’s messaging app had added two-step verification for beta versions of Android & Windows Phone in November last year. As of now, this feature is optional, by enabling this feature, any attempt to verify your phone number on WhatsApp must be accompanied by the six-digit passcode that you choose.

The second step of verification allows you to add an email address to your account which can be used to reset your password in case you forget it. But WhatsApp says that it does not verify this email address to confirm its accuracy so it is recommended you provide an accurate email address so that you’re not locked out of your account if you forget your passcode.

You can enable WhatsApp two-step verification by opening WhatsApp >Settings > Account > Two-step verification > Enable.

WhatsApp had rolled out full end-to-end encryption for all communications last year so, every call you make, and every message, photo, video, file, and voice message you send, is end-to-end encrypted by default, including group chats.
