Popular messenger WhatsApp is developing the ability to add two-step verification. This measure is intended to improve security and make it harder for hackers to log into their accounts.
In the future, WhatsApp users will be able to access the app from their desktop or browser without having to have a phone nearby. You don't even need to turn it on. Despite the convenience of this step, the risks for users will increase. Therefore, two-step verification is introduced.
When registering a WhatsApp account, after entering a six-digit code, a personal PIN code will be required to enter the account.
