The website wrote: “When someone else tries to connect to your WhatsApp account, you will have to accept the connection request by approving it. This way, people can finally decline a connection request if someone trying to log in to their account because they wrongly shared their 6-digit code.”
The feature also shared other details, regarding the time and information about the phone from which the connection attempt was made. The exact release date of this update is not yet known as it is still in the development phase.
WhatsApp is also working on a “double verification code” feature to enhance the security of user accounts. Once this update is rolled out, users will need an additional verification code to sign in to another device. The update will help users protect their accounts even if they are tricked by fraudsters into sharing their six-digit verification code. Notably, when the first attempt to log in to a WhatsApp account is successful, another 6-digit code is required to complete the process.
