WhatsApp is finally rolling out the two-step verification feature to every users of its Android, iOS, and Windows Phone apps. The security feature was previously available to only beta users for some time now, but it has now been made official.
This feature allows you to create a six-digit pass-code that’ll be required whenever your phone number is being verified on the app.
The two-step verification feature can be activated by going to Settings > Account > Two-step verification > Enable.
You’ll also be able to add your e-mail address, although it’s optional but can be useful in case you ever forget your pass-code.
WhatsApp won’t be able to verify the accuracy of the email address you enter, so you need to enter it carefully to make sure that you’re not locked out of your account if you forget your pass-code.
