WhatsApp which is said to be one of the best chatting forum is here again with it’s latest new inovation which will be loved by so many. This is how the Whatsapp two-step verification ought to begin. Firstly, as an existing account, you can go to your Settings, click on ‘Account’ and then ‘Two-step verification’ to begin the process.
Also know it that as part of beta version 2.16.346, you will now be able to enable the Whatsapp two-step, also known as two-factor, authentication. It isn’t switched on by default and is optional, but with two-step verification enabled, any attempt to verify a phone number on WhatsApp has to be accompanied by a six-digit password. This prevents people or hackers attempting to access your WhatsApp account by verifying your phone number on another handset. The update was highlighted by Android Police.
WhatsApp stresses that the feature is optional and users trying to verify the phone number on the app must use a six-digit password that was created using the feature. Users are also requested to setup an email address, which can be used to disable two-step verification when needed.
Based on the report from WhatsApp which says;
If you have two-step verification enabled, your number will not be permitted to re-verify on WhatsApp within 7 days of last using WhatsApp without your pass-code. Thus, if you forget your own pass-code, but did not provide an email to disable two-step verification, even you will not be permitted to re-verify on WhatsApp within 7 days of last using WhatsApp.
After these 7 days, your number will be permitted to reverify on WhatsApp without your passcode, but you will lose all pending messages upon reverifying – they will be deleted. If your number is re-verified on WhatsApp after 30 days of last using WhatsApp, and without your pass-code, your account will be deleted and a new one will be created upon successfully re-verifying.
You ought to know that the beta app also adds another feature that which simply allows it’s users to play audio messages in the background, a much needed feature indeed. With this, users need not keep the particular file open to play the audio. In fact, the audio will continue to play even when the user switches to other apps.
