Whatsapp to Introduce Two Step Verification Passcode Soon for Additional Security



This year, we have seen several new features on Whatsapp, but still it isn’t as feature rich as WeChat or Line that offers several options. The WeChat users can book a cab, order food, pay bills and can do many more, all this without leaving the app. While we aren’t expecting Whatsapp to offer all those features anytime soon, but recently we are seeing several improvements. Earlier we had exclusively posted about the voice mail and call back features that are made live in the recent update.

Now, the Facebook owned app is working to implement the two-step verification in order to offer additional security. While the users need to confirm their number by entering the six digit code that will be sent via SMS. Now additionally, the user can create a six-digit passcode which might work same as the four-digit passcode on Facebook. Once the Whatsapp is successfully verified, the users need to enter the six-digit passcode to open the app.


At the time of creating the passcode, the app also asks for the email. The entered email need to be verified in order to create a new passcode. If you ever forgot the passcode, you can hit the ‘Forgot Passcode’ option on the app screen, and you will receive the email to generate a new passcode. We expect this to be made live starting with the Windows Phone app. The users can skip the entering the email id as the two-step verification is not mandatory.

The end-to-end encryption is already introduced earlier this year. Last week, we had reported about the drawing tools that went live with the 2.16.262 beta update. The users can draw on the images before sending; we can also add text or emoji on the images. Along with many user loved features, the app also introduced a new option to share the user’s Whatsapp data and number with the parent company, Facebook. The users are left with just 30 days to manually disable this feature. Hope everyone disabled the option to share their data with Facebook.
