WhatsApp Offers many features for the security and privacy of its users. The company is trying to keep WhatsApp account of its users safe from hackers. After the cases related to Pegasus spyware, it has become very important to keep WhatsApp account safe. Pegasus is the same spyware that hacked the phones of 120 Indians last year. Not only this, it was also used to hack the phone of Amazon owner Jeff Bezos. To make the account safe, we are telling you about the two-step verification feature of WhatsApp. By activating it, you can improve the security of your WhatsApp data. When the feature is activated, a 6-digit passcode is required to login to the WhatsApp account when the phone is reset or the SIM is changed. Let’s know an easy way to activate this feature.
How to activate two-step verification
To activate two-step verification, open WhatsApp and go to Settings. Here in the account section, you will get the option of two-step verification, which enable it by going to Settings. After doing this, you will have to enter a 6-digit PIN.
After confirming the PIN, WhatsApp will ask you to add an email address. You can use this email address to reset the PIN if you forget it. Keep in mind that you should not miss any email address because WhatsApp does not verify it. In such a situation, if you enter the wrong email, it will be difficult to reset it if you forget the two-step verification PIN. Please tell that it is up to you whether to give the email address or not. You can also skip this step if you want.
Increase safety with fingerprint lock
WhatsApp introduced the fingerprint feature last year. With the help of this feature, you can secure your WhatsApp account with fingerprint. To enable it, go to the account option given in the settings and tap on Privacy. Here you will finally get the option of fingerprint lock, which you can activate by toggling on.
