According to a report from the WABetaInfo website, which tracks the functionality of WhatsApp, using this feature, the company will need to verify the same WhatsApp account before logging in on multiple devices. After the feature is introduced, when you try to log in to your WhatsApp on another device, you will get a 6 digit code on the old device. You must enter this code on your new device. Only after the code matches, you will be able to log into WhatsApp on the new device. Also Read – Apple WWDC Event 2022: Announcements expected, where to watch | all you need to know
The verification process will be strengthened
The 6-digit code will strengthen the verification process. Every time you log into WhatsApp from a new phone, an automatic 6-digit code is sent to the registered mobile number to load and save chats. This is done to prevent misuse of information. There have been many cases of fake login on WhatsApp. The purpose of this double verification code is to strengthen the WhatsApp login process and prevent misuse of personal information and account data.

The information will be given by notification
According to the report, after the introduction of this feature, when you try to log into the old WhatsApp on a new device, you will receive a notification. It will say that “this WhatsApp account is already logged in on any device”. If you still want to log into WhatsApp, the code sent on the old device will need to be entered on the new device. This way people will know that someone is trying to log into their account and they won’t share another verification code to complete the process.
