Last year, WhatsApp rolled out the much-anticipated end-to-end encryption for all users. In another step to make WhatsApp immediate messaging more secure, the company has rolled out two-step confirmation to its users spread across iOS, Android, and Windows platform.
It should be noted that WhatsApp started testing two-step verification feature last November. Now, with this elective feature enabled, while verifying their phones the users will need to use six-digit passcode created using two-factor verification.
After enabling this feature, the users will also have the option to enter their email address. It’ll be used by WhatsApp to send you a link to disable two-step verification in case you forgot your passcode.
You should also note that with two-step verification enabled, you won’t be permitted to re-verify on WhatsApp within a week of last using the service without the passcode.
Also, to help you remember the passcode, WhatsApp will occasionally ask you to enter your passcode.
