WhatsApp rolls out two-step verification process for enhanced security

Here you go, WhatsApp on Friday rolled out the two-step verification process for all devices to enhance the security of user’s accounts.

For past several months WhatsApp has been working on two-step verification.

"When you have the feature enabled, any attempt to verify your phone number on WhatsApp must be accompanied by the six-digit passcode that you choose," WhatsApp said in a statement.

The app users can activate the two-step verification process by going into the  ‘Settings’ and then tapping the ‘Account where they can enable ‘Two step verification’.

The new feature is open to all 1.2 billion WhatsApp users across iPhone, Android and Windows.
