WhatsApp has made every effort to secure your entire account login process. It apparently works to add an extra layer of security when logging into the WhatsApp account. This new feature will be available for Android and iOS users. The double-check code was spotted by WhatsApp tracker, WABetaInfo.
“After releasing the ability to customize our privacy settings by excluding certain people from seeing our information and the Code Verify extension to verify the integrity of the code of our web version of WhatsApp, the company is now developing another feature to improve the user security on WhatsApp by requesting a double check code,” WABetaInfo said.
When the feature is released for beta testers, any successful attempt to log into our WhatsApp account from another device will require an additional verification code to confirm, WABetaInfo noted.
This new update will strengthen the 6-digit code verification process. Every time you log into WhatsApp with a new phone, an automatic six-digit code is sent to the registered mobile number in order to load and save the chat. This is to stop the misuse of information, but many such cases have been reported in the past of fake login from an unknown source.
With the double check code, WhatsApp aims to strengthen the login process and prevent misuse of account, personal information and data.
WABetaInfo writes: “When the first attempt to log in to a WhatsApp account is successful, another 6-digit code is required to complete the process: in this case, another message is sent to the owner of the phone number to notify him of an attempt. to log in to their account. This way, people will know through WhatsApp that someone is trying to log into their account, and they won’t share the second verification code to complete the process.”
When rolled out, WhatsApp will be the first instant messaging app to use the double-verify login process. As said, this process is under development and may change in the final stages or not.
