How To Enable WhatsApp Two Step Verification And Secure Your WhatsApp With Password

The most used instant messaging application WhatsApp is rolling out two-step authentication for Android, iOS and Windows users, in order to avoid hacking attempts. Here’s how you can enable it.


 Earlier, SMS confirmation was the only way to register existing WhatsApp account to any new device, and the SMS could be sent to all devices registered on your phone. Therefore, two-factor authentication provides a crucial line of defense against criminals.
The company says on the FAQ page for the feature that “This email address will allow WhatsApp to send you a link via email to disable two-step verification in case you ever forget your six-digit passcode, and also to help safeguard your account.”
Moreover, the company stated that it does not verify this email address to confirm its accuracy. Hence, it is distinctly recommended that users make sure that they provide a correct email address so that they don’t end up locked out of their account if they forget their passcode.
To enable two-factor authentication, users need to download the latest version of WhatsApp from the Google Play Store or Windows Store or Apple App Store. After that simply you have to follow this step mentioned below:-
Step 1: Open the app then head over to your account settings in WhatsApp.
